Fyre Fest is the gift that keeps on giving. On Thursday, Netflix dropped a new trailer for the documentary Fyre, which offers up a behind-the-scenes look at what went wrong during the catastrophic event that saw a bunch of rich people get ripped off. It’s hilarious.
In 2017, rapper Ja Rule teamed up with 25-year-old entrepreneur Billy McFarland to throw a high-end experience over the course of two weekends in the Bahamas. Festivalgoers paid between $1,500 and $12,000 per ticket for a posh experience that included luxury tents, premium food catered by celebrity chefs and an opportunity to mingle with young, gorgeous models.

McFarland even enlisted several social media influencers, including Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, to promote the much-talked-about event. Blink-182 and Migos were listed in the lineup. It was supposed to be epic. Instead, it was a complete disaster.
Relive the greatest day on the internet in which we all came together to mock the great misfortunes of people with too much money on their hands. Never forget the flimsy white tents, soaked mattresses or this sad peasant sandwich.
Fyre, which features dozens of interviews with organizers, including Ja Rule and McFarland (who’s currently serving a six-year sentence for fraud), is directed by Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond’s Chris Smith. Vice Studios’ Danny Gabai and Jerry Media’s Mick Purzycki serve as producers on the project.
See how it all went down when Fyre premieres Friday, Jan. 18 on Netflix.
