For those of you who haven't seen this mentioned in the FWP thread you're in for a treat...
So this is how the festival was promoted
And this is how it was described
Fyre Festival is a cultural moment created from a blend of music, art, and food. Experience a journey in the Exumas from April 28 – 30 and May 5 – 7, 2017.
You'll be flown roundtrip on a custom, VIP configured Boeing 737 aircraft between Miami International Airport and Exuma International Airport on Great Exuma. Guests will be staying in modern, eco-friendly, geodesic domes. Additional housing and events are available for purchase across nearby islands and private cays.
The main festival living and stage area is at Rokers Point on Great Exuma, with main day parties taking part on the private and secluded Coco Plum Beach.
Unplug from the everyday and ignite your flame in the Exumas.
...and it ended up like this.
Blink-182 have cancelled their headline appearance at the event organized by rapper Ja Rule and promoted by Kendall Jenner.
A luxury festival on a private island in the Bahamas, organised by Ja Rule and due to feature appearances by Blink-182, Skepta, Rae Sremmurd and more, has descended into chaos after fans turned to a half-finished site that’s been likened to a disaster zone.
Fyre Festival, due to take place this weekend, had been advertised on social media as a hyper-glamorous getaway, promoted by supermodels including Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski and Bella Hadid who promised a beach paradise setting. Tickets to the event ranged from $4000 to $12,000.
Instead of a beach paradise, fans were subject to reported nine-hour delays getting on to the island, eventually making it the Exumas destination to what has been angrily likened to a “refugee camp”, with attendees taking to Reddit and other social media to complain of half-built tents, mountains of rubbish and sub-standard meals served in polystyrene containers.
