Fyre Festival turned out to be the great scam of 2017. From afar, people like myself spent Friday cackling with friends about the millennials who were suckered into paying hundreds — if not thousands — of dollars to go to a “luxury” music festival promoted Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, and Kendall Jenner only to experience a Lord Of The Flies nightmare. The reality was pretty shitty — There was little food or water thanks to incompetence and a lack of preparation from the organizers, creating an all around dangerous situation on the island.
A running vlog of the disaster was captured by Austin Mills, who flew to the Bahamas from LA despite some reservations. The fallout from Hunger Games: The Music Festival is just beginning too — On Sunday celebrity trial lawyer Mark Geragos filed a $100 Million lawsuit in U.S. District Court against Ja Rule and Billy McFarland, organizers of the Fyre Festival. Over 150 plaintiffs are named, with more coming.
That’s gonna be one expensive disaster.
