Actually, after reading multiple articles about this “luxurious” event and seeing tons of horrifying pictures, I think it’s safe to say that the Fyre Festival trumps Jason and Freddie on the scare-o-meter.
If you haven’t been blessed with the terrible news as of yet, here’s what really went down in the Bahamas. When Fyre Festival attendees purchased their tickets they were promised a luxurious festival event with performances by Tyga, Pusha T, Major Lazer, Blink-182 and more, along with a private jet ride, glam tents and gourmet food catered by world-famous chefs, on a beautiful island. All in exchange for the low, low price of $12,000. (And when I say low, I mean that was the cheapest ticket that could have been purchased. Yikes!) Is it safe to assume you don’t want to hear the price of their VIP tickets? Great, because you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life right now and neither do I.

Yet, the bad news doesn’t stop there. In fact, it only gets worse, much, much worse. Like disaster relief tents and a “catered” slither of cheese upon a toasted slice of wheat bread with a side of green salad, dinner. (I apologize, I lied, the bread wasn’t toasted. I just thought that would make this sound a whole lot fancier. Please forgive me.) As one should also forgive Ja Rule. Who despite not really being responsible for this shit show, is still responsible for this shit show. Who the hell was left in charge of this Ja? Have they been fired yet, because I wouldn’t even trust them to “clean up” this situation, honestly.
Shall they just take the walk of shame now?
Since I don’t have enough dreadful words to accurately describe the horror attendees went through, here are a few photos that pretty much sum things up, below.
The saddest part of this story is that we can’t even blame any of the attendees that stayed throughout this horrific event. We also don’t have the “why didn’t you leave” theory to hurl at them because they did try to leave. They just weren’t allowed too. (Maybe the Fyre Festival staff thought it was better to lock them all away “with no air, food, or water”, as @LamaanGallal mentioned on Twitter, so they could tweet the horrific events as they dealt with them?)

In all honesty, the only person I feel sorry for is the person who was in charge of releasing a statement on behalf of the Bahamas tourism board. The Bahamas didn’t deserve this kind of publicity. As for the kids that paid for this mess, I’m pretty sure if they had $12,000 to blow on a concert filled with B List celebrity artists, they have tons more in the bank just waiting to be foolishly spent elsewhere. I mean who’s seriously still listening to Pusha T or Tyga in 2017? Trust me, they’ll be just fine.
Now they have a cool story to tell their grandkids.
But what really blows my mind is that the Fyre Festival staff postponed the show. Postponed people, not canceled. Postponed! As if … *pause for dramatic effect while I take a deep breath and wait for the anger to subside* Who the hell is attending this god damn festival when they finally mange to get all of their ducks in a row after that shit show? You couldn’t pay me to trust these people again! (And I wasn’t even there.) And now it’s supposed to be in the US? Let us pray for them all!
Seriously Fyre Festival? I think not! I’d rather stay at home and watch Jason vs Freddie. (Which by the way, I’ve never seen, due to the fact that I absolutely hate horror movies.) So yeah, that’s a no for me. What do you think about this Fyre Festival mess? Would you still attend after they “got their shit together” despite everything they’ve already done? Could you trust them to do a good job after this? Sound off in the comments below and let me know.
