Remember the ill-fated Roxodus Festival? There’s a big auction of the company’s assets

Had things gone according to plan, the Roxodus Festival would have been one of the music highlights of this past Canadian summer. Instead, the whole thing was canceled due to financial pressures less than two weeks before the band was to hit the stage.

The company behind the festival, MF Live, is now selling off all sorts of assets in order to pay down massive debts. The first lot goes on sale this coming Tuesday. Among the items up for sale include:

  • High-end audio equipment
  • Professional audio gear
  • All sorts of professional-level lighting gear
  • Staging, trusses and some glamping tents
  • Clothing and promotional items
  • A pumper fire truck. (You read that correctly,)

If you want to learn more (and maybe bid on a thing or two) go here.
