Roxodus’ Once In A Lifetime Experience Put On Hold

Roxodus’ Once In A Lifetime Experience Put On Hold

You were excited. We were excited. Everyone was excited for Roxodus, which was set to bring acts like Aerosmith, Kid Rock and Nickelback onto the same bill in southern Ontario. But it looks like due to the heavy rain we’ve been getting all spring, rock fans might have to wait to a bit to see something like this. Here’s the message posted on 

To our Roxodus Family,

During the past couple of months, our venue at Edenvale Airport has battled tremendous rainy weather that has impacted our ability to produce the festival. It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the Roxodus Music Festival this year. Our team has worked tirelessly to find a solution in which the show can go on but unfortunately, we could not make it happen this year. Our dream of producing a ‘once in a lifetime experience’ has been put on hold as we take the much-needed time to nurture our venue into a premier landmark in Ontario. We sincerely thank all of the artists, sponsors, partners, and neighbors who have supported us from the very beginning. The embrace from our community has meant the world to us and we hope to one day see our dream come to life.

Information about ticket refunds will be released shortly.

The Roxodus Team

The festival was set to be the first of it’s kind, taking place at a 420 acre private airport northwest of Barrie. The Line up included Aerosmith, Kid Rock, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Nickelback, Alice Cooper, Cheap Trick, Billie Idol, Peter Frampton, Collective Soul, Blondie and somehow (somehow!) the list keeps going. The festival would have been a dream, here’s keeping our fingers crossed that something like this happens one day! We’ll keep you in the loop.
