Skrillex Cancels Full Flex Express Tour
Skrillex’s Full Flex Express Canadian train tour has been cancelled due to the financial difficulties created by various setbacks, among other reasons. The festival debuted last year with headliners Diplo, Pretty Lights, Grimes and, of course, Skrillex. Refunds will be available online or at the point of purchase, and the dubstep superstar hopes to bring the event back next year.
A Statement from the Full Flex Express Tour website reads:
It is with huge disappointment that we have to announce the Full Flex Express will not be happening in 2013. During the past 4 months we lost the train we had booked, found a new one, and then realized the cost associated with using it would put us at a huge, huge loss.
We explored every option to make the Full Flex Express happen but ultimately we could not get around these setbacks. Also, some of the acts we had in mind were unavailable and we only wanted to deliver the best of the best, which is what we think this festival should deliver.
The train is near and dear to my heart, and we have every intention of bringing it back in a massive way in 2014 (and for many years after), so please understand that we do this for you and this is just an unfortunate convergence of circumstances. Refunds will be issued at point of purchase and also to everyone who bought a ticket online.
The news is sure to be a major bummer for Canada’s EDM fans. However, Full Flex Express is not the first Canadian train tour to be plagued with issues.
