Fyre Festival

Stop whatever you're doing and search twitter for "Fyrefest" and "Dumpsterfyre"

A great way to learn how not to do a festival

We asked Grutman if the celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid are to blame for Frye Festival failing and leaving kids stranded in Haiti refuge tents.

The event used the supermodel’s social media to drive ticket sales in the thousands per person.



Groot had this to say, “Those girls are not to blame for this. They’re not the event producers, coordinators or creators.”

Re: Fyre Festival

I was coming to check if TNL was sleeping on this one :lol:

And I swear we had a thread on the site but I can't find it -- main festival partner had a recent startup called Magnises (or maybe under a different name) - this was the "Black Card for Millenials" thing:

It wasn't their fault. It was the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy.

I had a dream last night I was piloting a plane
and all the passengers were drunk and insane.

Yeah, those 'high winds' are a bitch :D

Some choice tweets...

"A take: The Rich Kids of Fyre Fest got what they wanted in the end--a one-of-a-kind experience to share on social media to the wonder of all"

Re: Fyre Festival

Now, more than ever, we need to build a wall on our eastern border. Ten feet higher, to keep all those rapists and drug dealers out.

All kidding aside, there's probably more rapists and drug dealers in a given sample of Fyre Festival attendees than there are on a given sample of fence-jumpers on the southern border.

Re: Fyre Festival

As I suspected, no one I care about is dumb enough to have gone.
