You've heard of the Fyre Festival because of the jokes that have surfaced this weekend but really, this is one huge disaster and we are just in awe.
Fyre Festival was supposed to be an amazing music and relaxation festival where you could get great Instagram pictures and meet famous models. Want to know what those who got there ended up getting? USAid tents and un-toasted sandwiches with a slice of cheese.
But the thing about the festival that people found to be the most entertaining was the tweets and Reddit posts written by attendees.
The festival wasn't cheap. A ticket just to get in was at least $450, and you could have a VIP package for around $12,000. Insane right?
AND festival goers had to travel to the Bahamas. But what happened when everyone got there was a lot more frightening than what these people had ever imagined.
Nothing was set up, there was barely any water or food, and the electricity wasn't working properly on the "exclusive private island." What little food they did have was FAR less than the "luxury meals" people thought they were going to be served.
Ja Rule, along with models like Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, promised all of these amenities -- but they didn't exist. Basically, everything that was promised was a lie. Even Blink-182 dropped out, which is weird because who wants to go to a music festival hosted by Ja Rule with Blink-182 as a headliner? Are they stuck back in 2002? Should we help them?
Regardless of what year these people thought they were in, they bought tickets and were abandoned on an island without proper food, water, shelter or transportation. So of course everything was seemingly blown out of proportion, but now the festival (there was supposed to be a second weekend) is cancelled, and those who blindly went to the Bahamas for it are back in the United States after hours of trying to return.
So I guess the moral of the story is maybe don't trust models on Instagram telling you to go to a music festival.
