We all heard about the massive catastrophe that was Fyre Festival. Last year, when Ja Rule and Billy McFarland failed miserably at trying to throw one of the most lavish music festivals they could imagine, distraught attendees took to social media to show the world just how horribly it was going.
The photos and videos that surfaced on the internet gave us a peek into the calamity that was Fyre Festival, but it looks like we will be getting a full on documentary about it all, developed by Billboard, Mic, and The Cinemart (according to The Hollywood Reporter). We’ve already heard about the gourmet cuisine that turned out to be pathetic cheese sandwiches, the confused roaming pigs, and the artists who backed out at the last minute, but we’re about to find out a whole lot more. The festival was one of the most epic failures we've ever seen and resulted in numerous lawsuits. We can't wait to get a behind the scenes look into how the festival advertised to be a luxurious getaway turned out to be more of a refugee camp than anything else.
The documentary (currently untitled) promises to dive into "in-depth interviews" with "local Bahamians, stranded festival-goers, vendors and investors" and will reveal "hours of exclusive never-before-seen footage, leaked documents, emails and recordings."
The release of the film is set for 2019, but stay tuned, as we’ll have more details on it as they emerge.
