Diplowatch 2012 #5: Diplo is Touring Canada with Skrillex and Grimes on a Train



Diplo will tour Canada in July, supporting headliner Skrillex on his Full Flex Express tour. Grimes, KOAN Sound, Pretty Lights and TokiMonsta will also join the land-bound rave cruise, traveling together on a private train between festival-style shows. Grimes says the tour is "literally the coolest thing I will ever do and after this my life has no meaning." The trip was inspired by 1970's "Canadian Woodstock" Festival Express tour, documented in the 2003 documentary Festival Express, where the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin and The Band traveled together by rail. More information on Full Flex Express ticketing will be posted on the festival's site in a couple of hours. A full schedule of dates announced so far is below.
