Word is spreading across the Internet that the first-ever Fyre Festival is a complete disaster. What was supposed to be a three-day, two weekend music festival on a private Bahamian island turned out to be an ill-conceived, likely irreparable waste of time and money for festival organizers and attendees alike.
Promoted as a “luxury” experience, festival-goers spent anywhere from $4,000 to $250,000 on flight and accommodation packages that promised meals and lodging. Music fans were instead given disaster relief tents and cheese sandwiches.
The festival, founded in part by Ja Rule, has been canceled. Empty flights from Miami have been dispatched to “rescue” stranded customers. In the meantime, Twitter is lit up with memes poking fun at the utter failure to launch. Join Billboard Dance in finding the humor in the situation below.
