Remember the horror that was Fyre Fest?? It was supposed to be a “luxury” festival with tickets ranging from 4,000 to 12,000 dollars. Instead, it offered unfinished tents, feral dogs running around the island, and staff nowhere to be found.
Well if you didn’t get your fair share of news about the festival last year, Hulu is ready to give you all the details. Set to be released in 2019, Hulu’s documentary series on Fyre Fest will feature never before seen footage of the festival as well as interviews with attendees, investors, and island locals. The documentary aims to show what happened at this disastrous event from beginning to end.
It will also detail the legal falling outs that happened after the festival. The festival was created by Fyre Media a company that came from rapper Ja Rule and entrepreneur Billy McFarland. Bloomberg reported that McFarland plead guilty on accounts of wire fraud and took a plea deal for 8 – 10 years, in addition to a maximum fine of $300,000. Ja Rule and McFarland both have over $100 million in civil lawsuits.
You’re going to want to make sure you have a Hulu login for this one. Here’s to hoping your documentary watching snacks look better than what they served at Fyre Fest!
