Fyre Music Festival is a once in a lifetime experience for people who wants to enjoy and relax on a private island filled with foods from top chefs and beer all over the place.
Ticket costs $1,000 - $12,000 that promised a cultural moment with music, art and great food. But upon arrival of the concert-goers, to what was advertise is far different from reality.
With the early birds posting photos of what seemed to be their experience, a lot have already canceled their flights. Even the festivals suppliers as well as musicians canceled on the last minute. But that's not all, those who arrived early were stuck in the island full of dust due to constructions around the area and pigs running around (in a reason we do not know why) in which should be what was advertised - private tents, a clean beach.
Here's what it is like to spend thousands of dollars for nothing.
So Fyre Fest is a complete disaster. Mass chaos. No organization. No one knows where to go. There are no villas, just a disaster tent city. pic.twitter.com/1lSWtnk7cA— William N. Finley IV (@WNFIV) April 27, 2017
The "catering" (which cost extra) was a slice of untoasted bread, two slices prepackaged cheese, and a side salad. pic.twitter.com/BoKxWAMI5i— Iron Spike (@Iron_Spike) April 28, 2017
The Fyre Festival management released a statement on their official website and assured the public of a full refund as well as a flight back for those who were stranded on the island.
Fyre Festival set out to provide a once-in-a-lifetime musical experience on the Islands of the Exumas.
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.
