The organiser of Fyre Festival seems to think there’ll be one next year

The organiser of Fyre Festival seems to think there’ll be one next year
Fyre Festival is the great clusterfuck of the spring, with promises of top food, posh camping and quality bands turning into Lord of the Flies. Terrible food, violent attacks and the need for the US embassy to try and save people in an event the internet is convinced is a scam. Surely there will never be another Fyre Festival, unless you count the people arriving at the courtroom this will end in.
Oh, wait, what sorry? The organiser says they’ll do it next year?
They started with a statement which said “After assessing the situation this morning and looking at best options for our guests, we cannot move forward as we hoped we could. The festival is being postponed until we can further assess if and when we are able to create the high-quality experience we envisioned.”
But them they told Rolling Stone: “We thought we were making timeframes that were correct. We were a little naïve in thinking for the first time we could do this ourselves. Next year, we will definitely start earlier. The reality is, we weren’t experienced enough to keep up… We’re going to take every measure to make this right for everybody now, and make this right for everybody next year, on a large scale.”
That’s a new level of optimism for this world. You’d have to be pretty stupid to risk your money on this again.
