SFX Entertainment’s List Of Unpaid Debts Emerges From Bankruptcy Filing



EDM conglomerate SFX Entertainment has found itself the subject of ongoing scrutiny in light of its recent bankruptcy filing, and in the days that have passed, numerous details of the company’s unsavory business practices have come to light. Most recently, after its bankruptcy filing, a list of SFX’s outstanding debts has reached the public.

Digital Music News obtained the list, and narrowed it down to only the 40 largest amounts. Among the more noteworthy individuals named is promoter Paolo Moreno, whom was just awarded an $11 million settlement after suing SFX Entertainment CEO Robert F.X. Sillerman for stealing the ideas which led to the company’s formation.

Many of the companies listed share direct ties to SFX – which would suggest a common interest in the company’s recovery. CrowdRX, for instance, was founded by SFX board member Andy Bazos – not to mention Postlight, which we revealed to have been an agency founded by laid-off Beatport engineers that the corporation apparently used as a means of avoiding a media circus.
