Artists React to Fyre Festival Debacle
Reports keep crashing in about the inaugural Fyre Festival's complete failure to launch. Headed by entrepreneur Billy McFarland and Ja Rule, the three-day, two-weekend Bahamian getaway was promoted by models Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski, and others as a luxury destination festival to take place on a private island. Tickets ranged from $4,000 to $250,000. Accommodations, flight costs, and meals were promised, but attendees were reportedly greeted with disaster relief tents, American cheese sandwiches, and a totally incomplete festival infrastructure.
Fyre Festival has officially announced its cancelation. Flights to the island have been canceled, and empty flights from Miami have been dispatched in a rescue mission to remove uncomfortable attendees from the area. Meanwhile, Twitter is lit up with reactions from around the entertainment world. Twitter itself compared Fyre Festival to The Hunger Games.
Billboard Dance has rounded-up some of the best artist reactions below.
