Fyre Festival was a fraudulent luxury music festival founded by Billy McFarland, CEO of Fyre Media Inc, and rapper Ja Rule. It was created with the intent of promoting the company’s Fyre app for booking music talent. The festival was scheduled to take place on April 28–30 and May 5–7, 2017, on the Bahamian island of Great Exuma.
The event was promoted on Instagram by “social media influencers” including Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and Emily Ratajkowski, many of whom did not initially disclose they had been paid to do so.
During the said festival, the problems experienced ranged from security, food, accommodation and other similar related problems. This caused the festival to be postponed indefinitely. The atttendees who had also paid heavily for the event, were not given proper accommodation. They were provided FEMA tents and prepackaged sandwiches.
