So apparently, the much-hyped high-end music extravaganza, Fyre Festival was not lit, in fact, it’s over, it’s canceled.
For weeks, celebs like Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, and Hailey Baldwin have been hyping up this so-called Fyre Festival. Fyre was supposed to be a weekend-long luxury “cultural moment created from a blend of music, art, and food.” Bink 182, Migos, Ja Rule, and Major Lazer were all set to perform. This event was catered to the elite since the tickets ranged from $4,000 to $12,000.
So what did you get with all of that dough? Well, ticket holders were supposed to get a roundtrip flight from Miami to the island of Exuma in the Bahamas and a luxurious camping experience (which if you ask us should have been the first clue something was up). There was also supposed to be a slew of activities including yoga and kayaking. Instead, when festival goers arrived on the scene, they walked into the actual Hunger Games. Apparently, feral dogs were even running around the island loose.
The Fyre festival which was supposed to start Thursday evening was already rocky when most festival goers couldn’t even get to the island due to grounded flights in Miami. These folks are probably thanking their lucky stars now.
Those who did get to Exuma were greeted by disaster relief tents, bread and cheese and not a staff member, band or security guard on site.
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

Ja Rule and his festival co-creator Billy McFarland are in the wind and have not yet made a statement about the disaster.

Meanwhile, The LITERAL Bahamas had to step in and make a statement assuring they would, “assist with the organization and safe return of all Fyre Festival visitors.”

According to Fyre Festival’s Instagram, the “once-in-a-lifetime musical experience” is now being “postponed”.

So yeah….. We don’t know where Ja Rule went, but he’s obviously been taking lessons from Joanne the Scammer.
