Netflix has premiered the official trailer for their upcoming documentary feature “Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened” which deals with the infamous collapse of the Fyre music festival.
Created by Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule, Fyre was promoted as a luxury music festival on a private island in the Bahamas featuring supermodels, A-List musical performances and posh amenities.
An organisational disaster, guests paid thousands of dollars to show up only to find emergency tents, bad cheese sandwiches and no musical acts playing. Guests were left stranded with no food, water, inadequate toilet facilities and no way off the island at points.
As a result, the organizers are the subject of eight lawsuits with one seeking more than $100 million in damages. The documentary will launch globally on Netflix on January 18th.
