If you haven't already seen this, watch the promo video for the Fyre Festival , and then you have to watch the Netflix documentary "Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened." It's fascinating and horrifying!
The Fyre Festival was supposed to be two weekends of music and frolicking with beautiful people on an island in the Bahamas. Remember the video posted all over social media promoting this, "I gotta be there", event? Supermodels Emily Ratajkwoski, Bella Hadid, and others sipping island drinks on a yacht, looking into the camera with that supermodel look, before diving into the Caribbean's crystal clear water.
This one video sold out a concert event that would never happen. Even though it became clear that there was no way this festival would ever happen, organizers pressed ahead. It descended into chaos when facilities weren't completed on time, leaving people to spend the night in rain-soaked tents and without sufficient access to food or water. It's a miracle nobody died.
Fyre Festival filed for bankruptcy in July 2017, and one of the promoters, Billy McFarland is now serving a six-year prison sentence for fraud valued at $27.4 million.
Kendall Jenne r was reportedly paid $275,000 for a single Instagram post, but now we'll find out for sure.
A judge has ruled that the trustees handling the bankruptcy can now subpoena records and information from the agencies and models, to force those involved to reveal how much they were paid for their services to promote this disaster that organizer Billy McFarland said was about, “selling a pipe dream to your average loser.”
If this was a movie, nobody would believe it...
