The hundreds of rich kids currently stranded in the Bahamas after spending upwards of $12,000 each to attend Ja Rule’s failed ‘luxury’ music festival, say they had very different perceptions of what it means to be livin’ it up.
Organisers of the much-hyped music festival in the Bahamas have given up on the weekend event halfway through, after people had already arrived and spent thousands of dollars on tickets and travel.
Fyre Festival organisers had previously billed the event as a “once-in-a-lifetime” concert along the lines of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Southern California, relying on models such as Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid to heavily promote it as a glitzy destination.
“What do I do?” said one Silicon Valley CEO, who’s spent three days with nothing to eat but cheese and salad sandwiches.
“I thought this was going to be such a typical, everyday, one night thing”
“But it turns out it’s a physical, I’ma fuck you tonight thing”
