  • The Fyre Festival

    Has anyone been hearing about this?

    Apparently it was some massive who's who party in the Bahamas set up by Ja Rule (remember him?), supposedly on a private Island owned by Pablo Escobar. $450 for a day pass, $12,000 for a full weekend.

    The whole thing is turning into one MASSIVE epic fail.

        We talked about this at dinner tonight. The organizer still doesn't seem like he's taking ownership of this -

        McFarland said he conceived of the event organically after he and Ja Rule “fell in love” with the Grand Exuma island, where the festival was supposed to take place. McFarland and Ja Rule are business partners in Fyre Media, an app which ostensibly allows customers to book performing artists for private events, and the Fyre Festival was intended to be an extension of that brand.

        Interestingly, McFarland claims he initially created the festival website as a test to see if people were interested, before it “took on a life of its own.”

        “We started the website to test the theory that people were interested and it went from there. All of the sudden we had thousands of guests and we started booking talent, and we had a festival on our hands. So we thought, oh wow, we have to go solve all the logistical problems,” McFarland said.

        Get the fuck outta here.

          If they couldn't get the logistics down, fine. But why the hell wouldn't they SAY ANYTHING ABOUT IT until a few thousand people showed up?

          The catering company claimed their contract was cancelled a month ago, so that's probably a point where they realized they were in trouble. Why not just say "due to circumstances beyond our control, we will have to postpone the festival until we can be guaranteed of providing everyone with a safe and fun experience"

              JaRule in charge of my travel and entertainment? If anything I don't put JaRule in charge of enough aspects of my life.
