Fyre Festival, a new luxury festival in Exumas, Bahamas, has been cancelled after logistical failures.
Ticket holders, who paid anywhere from 1,000 to 12,000 dollars for luxury packages, arrived to a festival site in turmoil. Festival organizers Ja Rule and entrepreneur Billy McFarland have since issued a statement saying:
“After assessing the situation this morning and looking at best options for our guests, we cannot move forward as we hoped we could.” It continued, “The festival is being postponed until we can further assess if and when we are able to create the high-quality experience we envisioned,” adding that organizers are working on scheduling flights for those already on the island.
Below are the best reactions to the festival’s collapse. Once again, the internet stays winning.
