Fyre Festival leaves attendees stranded in chaos after fraudulent promises [Breaking]

Attendees of Fyre Festival thought they were paying for a one-of-a-kind experience when they purchased tickets to what promised to be a lavish affair.  Technically, they weren’t wrong – but the unique experience which awaited ticket-holders on the Bahamian festival grounds was a bit different than the luxurious, supermodel-filled affair which they’d been promised.

The new festival – run by Ja Rule and Billy McFarland’s Fyre Media company – made headlines upon its announcement through a sponsored content campaign promoted on Instagram by the likes of Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski, and Bella Hadid. However, what seemed to be a glamorous gathering has swiftly fallen from grace as Fyre Festival (figuratively) goes up in flames.

Many ticket-holders never got a chance to see the dilapidation onsite at the festival, as all flights scheduled to depart to the destination in the Bahamas have reportedly been cancelled.

All Flights now cancelled from Miami. Festival likely cancelled. Empty planes now flying from Miami in a “rescue mission”. #fyrefestival

Those who did make it onto the festival grounds were met with a chaotic scene which differed substantially from the advertised oasis.

The issues currently underway at Fyre Festival are such that headliners Blink 182 have cancelled their headlining set just a day before the festival officially begins, stating, “”We’re not confident that we would have what we need to give you the quality of performances we always give fans.”
