Ny Times-A supposedly opulent music festival on a private island in the Bahamas, which was promoted as an unprecedented V.I.P. event by Instagram influencers including Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski, descended into dysfunction and disarray as soon as it began on Thursday and has since been postponed indefinitely, organizers said.
The inaugural Fyre Festival, founded by the rapper Ja Rule and the tech entrepreneur Billy McFarland, was set to feature performances by G.O.O.D. Music, Blink-182, Migos, Lil Yachty, Major Lazer and more — plus “first-class culinary experiences and a luxury atmosphere,” with ticket packages reaching six-figures for chartered yachts and private planes.
But when guests arrived for the first weekend on Thursday, they found grounds that were woefully lacking in the promised amenities and organization, according to accounts on social media that highlighted the soggy tents, bad food and general disappointment verging on panic.

This makes my heart melt. Nothing better than seeing rich kids throw their parents money at a luxurious trip to the Bahamas for a concert. Only to find out that the people coordinating the concert (Ja Rule, Billy McFarland) completely fucked it up. Or did they? Part of me thinks that this was intentional. Getting spoiled millennials to pay twelve thousand dollars to live like refugees. It’s great.

Also, what kind of asshole do you have to be to drop thousands of dollars on yacht trips and luxurious cuisine at a concert festival? Concert festivals are meant to be dirty, camping orgies. As for the yacht trips? Don’t misunderstand. Ballers by all means should ball. If you have a fucking yacht, flaunt that shit in front of everybody. Capsize smaller boats with your wake. But if you are paying thousands to look like you have a yacht. Then fuck you.
