In 1970, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin and The Band boarded a private train and toured across Canada. They called it the Festival Express, and some say it was better than Woodstock. Well, since Canada’s still as hip as ever, and since DJs are the new rock stars (as I’m sure you’re getting real sick of hearing by now), it only seems appropriate that the concept be rejuvenated by Skrillex, Pretty Lights, Diplo, Grimes, KOAN Sound and Tokimonsta, who’ll be touring Canada on their private train for the Full Flex Express tour this summer. Partly inspired by the Festival Express and partly inspired by the recent train tours put on by Mumford and Sons and Edward Sharp, the Full Flex Express will be stopping at 6 cities between July 13 – Jul 22 and playing festival-style shows with multiple stages.
