Fyre Festival is the place Where Live Music Turned into a Nightmare

The place where live music turned into a nightmare is Fyre Festival and is not even their last try. The people, who organized it, want to do it again in 2018.

The festival located in Bahamas began by attracting tourists with their live-music experience that would take place on a private island, Fyre Cay.

Advertised as a luxurious and highly Instagrammable music festival experience and announced in December.

The people who organized it, including the founder of social club Magnises, promised that everyone would have a great time.

They also promised people yacht parties, buried treasures and concierge packages.

Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, and Kendall Jenner promoted the festival with shots on every social media.

Ja Rule, who stars in the Fast and Furious sequels, would serve as the host of the festival.

Blink-182, Major Lazer and Migos were included in the lineup, with several of the bands dropping out in the last moment.

On the festival’s first weekend, on Thursday night, posts on social media began to surface that described a less of pretty place.

People began uploading posts on social media of stranded passengers, disaster-relief conditions, and not the promised food.

Quickly on the entire island the live music festival turned in an absolute nightmare. Then the inbound flights towards the festival cancelled.

In a statement on the festival’s Web site, organizers announced that they were working “as quickly and safely as we can to remedy this unforeseeable situation.”

In the meantime, the people who arrived there were trying to get back home, without luck.

Rapper Ja Rule even apologized on social media and promised full refunds. Although he says he is not to blame, he accepted full responsibility.

Billy McFarland, Ja Rule’s partner released a letter to Rolling Stone on Friday afternoon. In it, he called the event “the toughest day of my life” and admitted, “We were a little naïve in thinking for the first time we could do this ourselves.”

What do you think? You believe this kind of situation could have been avoided?
