People paid thousands of dollars to attend a concert in the Bahamas that was billed as a luxury concert but they left pretty disappointed.
Would you pay up to $12,00 per ticket for a concert that didn’t offer showers, bathrooms, or running water?
According to one concert goer, Aala Busier, “There was no showers. There was no bathrooms. There was no running water. There was nothing.”
The concert, called the Fyre Festival, was supposed to start Friday and would take place over two weekends with appearances from Blink 182, Major Lazer, and others.
Ja Rule, who was one of the organizers Tweeted an apology about how things turned out and said, “I truly apologize as this is NOT MY FAULT … but I’m taking responsibility. I’m deeply sorry to everyone who was inconvenienced by this.”
“It’s not because we didn’t have caviar in the morning. It’s not because of that,” Farah Benghozi, another attendee said. “It’s because it was false advertisement and it was not safe. Period.”
There were no luxury accommodations provided but tents instead that had been soaked by a rain storm.
Plus there was no security to be found, and the festival organizers weren’t around either.
The festival has been postponed and organizers said they were working to get attendees home safely.
“Due to circumstances out of our control, the physical infrastructure was not in place on time and we are unable to fulfill on that vision safely and enjoyably for our guests,” a statement from the organizers said. “At this time, we are working tirelessly to get flights scheduled and get everyone off of Great Exuma and home safely as quickly as we can.”
“The festival is being postponed until we can further assess if and when we are able to create the high-quality experience we envisioned,” the statement said.
