I thought rich people being scammed is appropriate. Maybe start a new thread? Or useless convo?

And to compare, this is how it was promoted:

It's like a LARP of what "going Galt"  would be like in the real world.

While this is extreme, having gone to Ultra in Miami Beach each year I lived down there, the way they promote and what it actually ends up looking like are way different every year.

It's surprising to discover just how little sympathy I have for rich people.  I learned something new about myself today!

I wouldn't object too strongly if Trump was annoyed that they weren't at Mar-A-Lago and decided to drop a nuke on them.

I Worked at Fyre Festival. It Was Always Going to Be a Disaster.

Quote
My job as a talent producer was to coordinate travel and on-site logistics with the artists who would be performing: Blink 182, Major Lazer, Disclosure, among others, had already signed on. I would be working with an 11-person team and a few of the festival executives. The production team was all new hires and, before we arrived, we were led to believe things had been in motion for a while. But nothing had been done. Festival vendors weren’t in place, no stage had been rented, transportation had not been arranged. Frankly, we were standing on an empty gravel pit and no one had any idea how we were going to build a festival village from scratch.

So have they been taken hostage, and are the kidnappers threatening to release one an hour till their demands are met?

This is a bit unreal. I am curious to see how this all plays out in the long run. Though like the rest of you I have trouble feeling sorry for the rich kids who got scammed by this.

This is par for the course for Billy McFarland, the real organizer of the thing .  Do we yell shame or bravo for his efforts at defrauding stupid ppl?.. why so serious?

Everything about Fyre Fest is hilarious. And anyone that would travel to the Bahamas got a festival deserves what they get.

I bet in 6 months there will me more people claiming to be at this thing than could actually fit 2 person deep on the island, because it will be the latest "in" thing to have survived.

And lol at the price of those Tee shirts.

There were reports some of them were locked inside a room of the airport by airport workers for some reason. Hence my title.

They've now locked us in the airport. No rules, just right. Welcome to the Bahamas!

Arise!!

So they got around to arresting MacFarland for the whole Festival Fiasco.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/07/01/us/fyre-festival-founder-charged/index.html

Typically, he's being charged not with ripping off his customers, but with investor fraud. He is accused of misrepresenting his company's worth while securing investments, even up to the point of altering financial documents.

I didn't realize the guy is just 25. I'm sure he was certain "this is just how it's done" but now the dumbass might actually get jail time.

I know, some here will think that's impossible, but he's a young punk who may well get thrown to the wolves as an example. He's made a couple of high profile enemies here.

Should have stayed with app-making...

There's a pending class action lawsuit filed on behalf of the customers, so there may be more to come.

The unfortunate part is that there may not be much money left for such a lawsuit to claw back.
