One of the most talked about moments of 2017 had to be the disastrous “luxury” Bahamas musical event, the Fyre Festival.
Fast-forward to 2019, Netflix will be giving people around the world an inside look at the chaos with a new documentary.
On Monday, the streaming giant announced their new documentary “FYRE”, directed by Chris Smith and produced by Vice Studios, will debut on Jan. 18, 2019.
“FYRE” will take you inside the controversial “destination” music festival created by artists Billy McFarland and Ja Rule, which promised “paradise” but actually turned out to be straight out of a horror movie.
The event was also heavily promoted by influencers and models like Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski, in an attempt to coax people into buying the pricey ticket packages.
After spending thousands of dollars on tickets, the luxury accommodations that were promised (like private planes and beach tours) actually consisted of poorly-made white tents and below-average cheese sandwiches on the island of Exuma in the Bahamas.
Back in March, McFarland was sentenced to six years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of wire fraud charges.
