Netflix has unveiled the trailer for its newest documentary, focusing on the absolute shambles that was 2017’s Fyre Festival.
Early last year, the Fyre Festival made world headlines when it spectacularly failed before it even began. Described as a luxury concert of sorts, the festival was intended to be held on the Bahamian island of Great Exuma, and was supposed to have been headlined by the likes of Blink-182 – who famously pulled out before it was due to start.
Sadly, it quickly became clear that the whole thing was a mess from the start, with chartered flights not arriving or even taking off as anticipated, and accomodation for attendees being woefully inadequate. Attendees who actually made it to the event (which by that point had been cancelled), described the entire situation as a “shit show”.
Ultimately, Fyre Festival founder Billy McFarland was found guilty of defrauding investors out of a total of $26 million.
While festival has since become an example of how not to run an event, we’re about to get a closer look at the whole ordeal, with Netflix dropping the trailer for its new documentary today.
