Dj Skrillex - Skrillex's Train Tour Rolls Into Financial Trouble
Dance Dj Skrillex's unique train tour of Canada has gone off the rails after funding issues forced him to axe the entire trek.
The dubstep star launched the first string of Full Flex Express shows last year (12), with fellow musicians Diplo, Pretty Lights and Grimes all travelling cross-country on board their own train.
Explaining the issues which led to the cancellation of the 2013 adventure on Facebook.com, Skrillex writes, "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."
