The Fyre Festival, considered by many the most disastrous music festival in history, is set to appear on the small screen as part of a Netflix documentary. The event managed to scam people out of thousands of dollars for a “once-in-a-lifetime musical experience,” which turned into a disaster for those present. There was lawsuits filed against Ja Rule and the founder, Billy McFarland who is currently in jail. Now, Netflix has capitalized on the event by acquiring rights to a documentary on the festival.
The documentary titled Fyre, will provide a deeper insight into the chaos that occurred at the event. The festival was marketed to be a luxurious experience on a private island that included musical performances and celebrity appearances. Those that attended the event were then let down when they got to the grounds, as they realized it was nothing like it was marketed on social media.
The documentary is set to arrive on Netflix on January 19th and Hulu is set to have a socu-series on the event next year as well.
Check out the trailer below:
