July 8, 2015 at 12:55 PM (PT)
SKRILLEX's eight-city CANADIAN FULL FLEX EXPRESS TOUR has teamed up with LIVE NATION and YAHOO to live-stream their concert live from TORONTO, this SATURDAY.
This is one of 365 concerts to stream over a 12-month period on the YAHOO's LIVE NATION CHANNEL. Fans can tune in on SATURDAY at 4p (EDT) to listen to the show here. The concert will also be streamed via YAHOO SCREEN on iOS, ANDROID, mobile, desktop and all smart TV platforms, including APPLE TV, ROKU and XBOX 360.
SKRILLEX has also announced a tour partnership with MIAMI-based art collective PRIMARY to curate a collection of visual art components to encourage audience participation and interaction.
"What piques our interest the most is the audience," PRIMARY founder BOOKS BISCHOF explained about the commitment to the link between music and art. "What we experience are immeasurable moments steeped in magic, exploding out of a foundation that is tribal in nature." PRIMARY's goal in the eight cities is to "observe, encourage and document (in various mediums) those unique high and low moments where vision meets sound."
PRIMARY's current experiment for FULL FLEX is rooted in the art of mark-making (cave drawings, graffiti, tree carvings). Inspired by PAWEL ALTHAMER's exhibition "The Neighbors" at the NEW MUSEUM in NEW YORK, PRIMARY and OWSLA invite festival-goers to participate by leaving their own marks and messages on a collection of temporary walls as well as a towering abstract tree. These messages will then be documented and released online. PRIMARY will tour to each city with a four sided art structure that will partner MIAMI-based creatives BOOKSIIII BISCHOF, CRISTINA GONZALEZ and TYPOE GRAN with local CANADIAN-based artists from each city along the tour route.
