Fyre Festival, which was supposed to be a luxurious experience for people who paid thousands of dollars for the ticket and trip, is a complete disaster. The price of the tickets went from $4,000 to $12,000. Some of them included flights from Miami, yacht rides and private villas.
Everything began falling down when Blink 182 decided to cancel their performance by releasing the following statement.
Users are sharing videos and photos of the poor conditions of the festival.

And this that luxurious meal that attendees were given…

The festival has now been postponed and organizers shared the following statement:
Due to circumstances out of our control, the physical infrastructure was not in place on time and we are unable to fulfill on that vision safely and enjoyably for our guests. At this time, we are working tirelessly to get flights scheduled and get everyone off of Great Exuma and home safely as quickly as we can. We ask that guests currently on-island do not make their own arrangements to get to the airport as we are coordinating those plans. We are working to place everyone on complimentary charters back to Miami today; this process has commenced and the safety and comfort of our guests is our top priority.
The festival is being postponed until we can further assess if and when we are able to create the high- quality experience we envisioned.
We ask for everyone’s patience and cooperation during this difficult time as we work as quickly and safely as we can to remedy this unforeseeable situation. We will continue to provide regular updates via email to our guests and via our official social media channels as they become available.
The description of the website reads as follows: “Fyre Festival set out to provide a once-in-a-lifetime musical experience on the Islands of the Exumas.”
It sure will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for all the rich people who attended.
