The grand & glorious Fyre Festival for rich kids
Fri Apr 28, 2017 2:36pm

The organizers may be in serious trouble as the one real crime even rich people do not get away with is ripping off rich people. The money paid in went as high as $12,000 each for this experience.

The chaos of the Fyre Festival: 'It looked like the set of ‘Outbreak' '

The first-ever Fyre Festival wasn’t supposed to be like this. Hyped as “the cultural experience of the decade,” the festival was supposed to launch the first of its two consecutive weekends Friday on a remote island in Fyre Cay in the Exumas, a string of islands in the Bahamas.

It turned out to be a massive disaster that had festival organizers canceling at the last minute and unhappy guests who’d paid thousands to attend blasting the whole thing as a fraud.
Signs that there were problems had been apparent for weeks.

Production costs spiraled and promoters struggled to pay vendors on time, while some artists had yet to be paid in full before the event was supposed to start, according to multiple industry sources familiar with the matter. Ticket holders complained on social media that organizers had been lax about sending logistical details ahead of time.

Headliner Blink-182 pulled out of the event Thursday, telling fans they were concerned organizers would not be able to provide the production needed for their performance.

      The sad thing is that people like you take delight in seeing a project for the rich fail. It's called schadenfreude combined with wealth envy.

              Then, why worry about it? Maybe these people didn't "waste" money. Maybe the money they pissed away went to benefit others. Who knows?
