You Need To Know About The Greatest Party That Never Happened

In 2016, plans unfolded for an incredibly innovative and expensive music festival to be held on a remote island of the Bahamas for the following year – Fyre Festival. However, it never happened.

Seems anticlimactic right? Wrong. What happened was so insane that Netflix and Hulu both created their own original feature length documentaries chronicling the bizarre decline of the doomed festival, which resulted in millions of dollars in losses and several court cases. It was a huge mess.

I recently watched the doc on Netflix and was blown away at the lengths the creators of this festival were willing to go to cover their own butts.

Below is the trailer for the Netflix original. Take a look as the trailer alone is gripping enough to gain interest in the story. I personally thought the documentary portrayed the stuff of nightmares and I almost felt repelled by music festivals in general.

It was also interesting to see the biopic of Billy McFarland – the festival’s creator and experience the grey area between genius and madman, alongside an entrepreneurial spirit inevitably crossing over the thin line into committing fraud.

I highly recommend watching Netflix’s informative and creative documentary Fyre about the decline of an ill-fated event.
