Fyre Festival is contemporary on everybody’s minds, thanks to 2 new documentaries on Hulu and Netflix. It has been virtually two years for the reason that competition’s disastrous run, however we’re nonetheless speaking about it. Fyre has actually grow to be a popular culture sensation.
We doubted one other Fyre Festival would ever occur, however a mysterious Facebook occasion says in any other case. The Facebook occasion promotes a Fyre competition on the Matiu/Somes Island in Wellington, the capital of New Zealand. A Facebook web page known as The Student Bible posted the occasion, so it’s doubtless simply a joke. But, the concept itself is fairly humorous.
The occasion web page itself is sparse in particulars, solely giving a date of February 23 and a description studying “Let’s make Billy’s vision a reality.” The Billy in reference is in fact Billy McFarland, the Fyre founder and famous scammer and legal. The occasion web page’s cowl photograph is a low high quality picture of New Zealand with FEMA tents photoshopped in for good measure. The FEMA tents reference the tents used at Fyre, a far cry from the luxurious villas promised to attendees.
If anybody desires to danger one other Fyre debacle, guide your airplane tickets now. Otherwise, sit again, loosen up and benefit from the potential social media present.
