Canadian Festival, Under Criticism, Issues Refunds

TORONTO (CelebrityAccess) Potential patrons of Roxodus, an event that was scheduled near Toronto, Canada, for July 11-14 , have been allowed refunds.

Eventbrite will reportedly refund ticket holders for the cancellation. The event, to take place at Adendale Airport about 90 minutes away from Toronto, was called off by first-time promoters MF Live because of “tremendous rainy weather” at the area despite it pulling off the Rolling Stones concert at the time. The event was to host acts like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kid Rock, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper and Billy Idol.

“After multiple attempts to communicate and secure funds back from the Roxodus organizers, they have provided no indication that they will refund ticket holders,” Eventbrite told Billboard.  “We believe attendees deserve to get their money back now, so we have set up an Eventbrite-funded Fan Relief Program to make all Roxodus ticket holders whole while we continue to aggressively pursue the return of funds from the festival’s creators. We are transferring funds to ticket holders immediately and they can expect to see it reflected on their credit card or bank statement within seven business days.”

The situation was called into question by the locals. The announcement that it was canceled because of potential rain was called a “bunch of bunk” by an airport employee

“I do know that we received lots of rain previously that did delay some work, but any future rain is not an issue,” Kurt Bernt told Barrie Today. “They spent millions building drainage for it and clearing all the necessary land. We’ve had rain for sure, but not that much to need to cancel the event.”

The event may have been moved to the nearby Burl’s Creek but the property issued the following statement: Despite last-minute attempts with MF Live to arrange the show at Burl’s Creek, we can confirm that Roxodus will not take place at our property.”
