Fyre Festival will go down as a person of the the most disastrous festivals in background, following party-goers who compensated countless numbers of dollars for tickets were still left stranded on a personal island in the Bahamas in 2017. Reportedly housed in “refugee” quality tents and provided only basic foods, the pageant was achieved with a barrage of negitive publicity as unhappy competition-goers flocked to Twitter and Instagram to express their distain.
In October, it was described that Fyre Festival’s Billy McFarland experienced been placed in solitary confinement pursuing a new podcast launch. McFarland is at the moment serving a six year sentence at FCI Elkton in Lisbon, Ohio, for wire fraud related to the calamitous competition that hardly ever was.
