The inaugural Fyre Music Festival was on track to be the hottest event following in the footsteps of Coachella, instead it ended up being the crustiest event of the year. And now, fans are furious, the organizers are scrambling and lots of people have taken to social to voice their displeasure.
The event, hosted by rapper Ja Rule, was scheduled to start Friday in the Bahamas, featuring a line-up that included multiple G.O.O.D. Music artists, Blink-182, Rae Sremmurd, Lil Yachty, and many more, but before one beat was heard the festival completely crashed and burned. (Pun intended; after all, it is called Fyre.)
The initial promotional video featured supermodels Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and Emily Ratajkowski partying in what appears to be lavish surroundings. So of course, that’s what people expected after forking over a fortune for the weekend. Tickets for the two-weekend festival ranged from $1,000 to $12,000 and $250,000 group packages were also offered.
Instead, the accommodations were poor and the food, whelp, Rain Man asked it best. “Hey @GordonRamsay what would you rate #fyrefestival gourmet meals?”
And if you think slabs of bread and cheese are gourmet folks, you haven’t lived.
The luxurious housing that was promised, the over the top tents, that looked like this in promotional materials,
Instead looked like this …
Blink 182 saw the handwriting on the wall and pulled out of the event Thursday night. Tweeting, “after much careful and difficult consideration, we want to let you know that we won’t be performing at Fyre Fest in the Bahamas this weekend and next weekend. We’re not confident that we would have what we need to give you the quality of performances we always give our fans.”
At that point all hell broke loose, and festival organizers pulled the plug tweeting that they would be canceling the two-weekend event and will be refunding concert goers their money.
Ja Rule, meanwhile, hasn’t uttered a word regarding the failed festival. But plenty of people are expressing their displeasure at the twitter site @FryeFraud and there are hundreds of magical meme’s .
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
