Finally, a more expansive trailer for Netflix‘s highly anticipated feature Fyre Festival, a documentary that chronicles how the festival concept by Ja Rule and Billy McFarland became one of the most disastrous events ever.
The entire “luxury” festival – which was supposed take place in the Bahamas – was marketed on “influencer” and Instagram model’s images coupled with wild, grandiose promises. Despite the price for tickets ranging between $4,000 and $12,000, the event sold out almost immediately!
What guests thought would be an exclusive island festival featuring performances by Skepta, Disclosure, Kaytranada and Blink 182, turned into a war zone where attendees were stranded and fought for soaked mattresses and soggy sandwiches.
Since the entire ordeal, McFarland has been sentenced to six years in prison for fraud and also given a $26 million forfeiture order – which will see the transfer of almost all his monetary assets to the government. Watch the trailer below and visit Netflix for more on Fyre Festival Documentary.
