Fyre Fest went from a celebrity-fueled “luxury” trip to a viral laughingstock

prices ranging from $450 to $12,000 (not counting upgrades), and some ticket levels supposedly topping out at a $250,000 group rate, Fyre Fest was sold asa extravagantly produced high-end getaway held over two weekends on a “& ldquo; private island once owned by Pablo Escobar” & rdquo; in the Exumas district of the Bahamas. There, guests could participate in concerts from headlining artists Blink 182 and Tyga.

Co-founded by Ja Guideline and promoted heavily on Instagram and Twitter by a list of supermodels, Kendall Jenner, and other low-level stars, the festival promoted flashy benefits like VIP tents on the beach, each total with luxury king-size bed, gourmet meals prepared by celebrity chefs, and a VIP jet party. The festival boasted that guests could likewise remain in & ldquo; contemporary geodesic domes& rdquo; or on luxury yachts simply off the coast. From the moment we stepped off our planes in the exumas we had Instagram models dancing around and pouring
