When Skrillex hits the road on his Full Flex Express tour this summer with Diplo, A$AP Ferg, and others, he’ll bring more than just big beats: today the EDM titan announced his plan to donate music gear—two CDJ 2000s and one DJM 900 mixer—to youth music centers at each of the tour’s eight stops. In addition, the tour will provide quick lessons on how to use the new equipment, and a portion of ticket sales will go towards the Bridges For Music fund to help build the Langa Music School in South Africa. Finally, Bridges For Music and Skrillex are further incentivizing charitable contributions by entering anyone who donates to the fund in a contest to win a VIP package for a show.
