Fyre Festival Is the Biggest Disaster in Luxury Festival History

We’re always fans of new festivals, but if Fyre Festival‘s debut is the last time it sees the light of day, it will be a good thing. The festival was supposed to be the most luxurious one yet, but, well, it’s turned into a living nightmare.

Held in the Bahamas, tickets to Fyre Festival ranged between $4,000 and $12,000, so people expected some bang for their buck. And that’s exactly what the festival promised. Everything from private villas, yacht rides and amazing headliners were on the agenda.

Looks fun, right? NOPE.

However, when people started arriving, things immediately went south. The private villas were actually half put together tents with feral dogs running between them. Garbage heaped up in between the tents, which were situated on mounds of dirt. The meals prepared by private chefs actually ended up being slabs of plain bread and slices of cheese.

And the amenities weren’t all that was bad. As people desperately tried to get flights off the island, they wound up stranded at the airport and even locked in airport rooms. One man even claimed his girlfriend went to the first aid tent after getting sunburnt, and six hours later, he still couldn’t find her. A bouncer blocked his way into the first aid area.

Rapper Ja Rule was one of the Fyre Festival organizers, but none of them have given legitimate explanations. They finally issued a simple response saying, “Due to circumstances out of our control, the physical infrastructure was not in place on time and we are unable to fulfill on that vision safely and enjoyably for our guests.” Umm…what circumstances in this case were out of their control?

Here are some of the many, MANY horror stories on Twitter:

Yum.

Artists like Major Lazer and Migos were supposed to be on the lineup, but they haven’t released any statements yet. Blink-182 pulled out of the festival before it started.
