What was set to be the opening weekend of trust-fund millennial debauchery in the Bahamas has turned into nothing short of Lord of the Flies. The Fyre Festival - organized by Ja Rule and some guy who's scammed millennials in the past was hyped by models and advertised as a boutique luxury music festival held in Exumas, Bahamas. All inclusive tickets ranging from $4,000 - $12,000 were supposed to include a chartered private flight from Miami, private luxury tents, yacht rides, and performances from Blink-182 and about two dozen other artists.
Not so much...
The "chartered flight from Miami" turned out to be severely delayed coach seats, and upon arrival shocked concert-goers were met with partially constructed USAID disaster relief tents:
And an attentive concierge booth:
Hundreds of pieces of luggage were lost in transit, though a big container truck showed up in the dark to toss bags to a mob:
Just in time for the muggings and robberies!
Reports are rolling in of burning tents and anarchy:
Phones are dying, passports are missing:
Feral dogs are roaming around:
And relationships have been destroyed:
The US embassy is reportedly involved:
Oh, and Blink 182 canceled...
Only one question remains; WHERE IS JA?
