Fyre Festival: music event for the wealthy turns into gigantic horror show

Fyre Festival: music event for the wealthy turns into gigantic horror show
Fyre Festival: a music event on a private Bahamas island, with models promoting expensive tickets, posh glamping tents, top bands, quality food… it was supposed to be an Instagram led paradise for the wealthy youth. But like any true science-fiction, the haven of the elite has gone horrible wrong.
 
Reports are still muddled, but Fyre Festival is the musical equivalent of those Christmas events where Santa’s kingdom turns out to be a muddy field, except at Fyre people are getting robbed physically as well as financially. The gourmet food turned out to be a cheese sandwich which wasn’t even assembled, the glamping turned out to be tents used in disaster relief, reports have security mugging people, locals are angry, there is a skeleton staff… basically it’s gone to total shit. Tickets ranged in value from the hundreds to some VIP ones costing $12,000.
 
How much shit? At least one US flight full of festival goers didn’t even take off because of the situation, and the US Embassy is getting involved to get people back. Those there are having a horrible time. Twitter is having a great one: the schadenfreude is heavy.
