There are so much revelations to mull over within the trailer for Netflix’s forthcoming documentary about Fyre Pageant, however one assertion actually encapsulates the failed music competition: “Highly effective fashions constructed this competition, after which one image of cheese on toast ripped down the competition.”
Coming to the streaming platform on Jan. 18, Fyre: The Biggest Occasion That By no means Occurred explores what precisely went improper with what was alleged to be a luxurious getaway on a secluded island within the Bahamas with notable performers, fashionable meals, and copious quantities of alcohol in 2017. It is since been well-documented that many musical acts dropped out of the competition earlier than it even started, meals and water had been scarce, and getting off the island would show to be troublesome, to say the least.
The documentary will even tackle the aftermath, particularly the lawsuits co-founders Billy McFarland and Ja Rule have confronted because of their poor planning. Although most of the fits are ongoing, McFarland was sentenced to 6 years in jail in October 2018 after pleading responsible to wire fraud.
