Fyre Festival was presupposed to be probably the most insane competition the world had ever seen. And in a approach… it succeeded. Just not in the best way anybody had hoped. The brainchild of Ja Rule and Billy McFarland grew to become one of many most-talked about occasions of 2017 for all of the mistaken causes.
Now, a brand new documentary from Netflix, FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened, makes an attempt to shine a light-weight on the competition from a never-before seen angle behind the scenes with actual captured footage.
“Powerful models built this festival,” says one of many interviewees. “And then one picture of cheese on toast ripped down the festival.”
The documentary compiles footage from the festivals, behind the scenes footage of McFarland, in addition to new commentary footage from these concerned. It’s out globally on Netflix on January 18, 2019.
