Putting out the Fyre…

The worst “luxury” festival of all time? The organizers of the Fyre Festival promised “two transformative weekends” on a “remote and private” island in the Bahamas that was “once owned by Pablo Escobar.” Ja Rule was one of the organizers. Kendall Jenner promoted it on Instagram. Festival-goers paid thousands of dollars for a taste of the lifestyle of models from their Instagram feeds.

However, none of that happened.

Guests arrived to find themselves staring at a chaotic festival site that looked more like a bad summer camp. Complete with shoddy beach accommodations and far from gourmet meals. Bands cancelled and pulled out last-minute. Eventually, the festival was cancelled, and attendees were sent home. But, predictably, that went about as well as you’d think. People got stranded at the airport, with little food or water. Because the event was cashless many people didn’t have funds to get to the airport. The festival has been slapped with two lawsuits and people are still creating memes about their “Hunger Games” experience, hoping they get a refund.

Reality:

Moral of the story, don’t believe everything you see online!
