Although festival goers thought Ja Rule, Billy McFarland, and Fyre Media planned the year’s best festival, they ended up having one of the worst experiences one could have paid for. Hundreds of millennials dropped thousands of dollars for a luxury trip to the Bahamas but were sorely disappointed within hours of being there.
Ja Rule and his partners offered luxurious beds along with gourmet meals and high class acts like Blink 182, Major Lazer, and Disclosure, but none of the artists showed. The luxurious meals offered were camping food material and the beds were soaked from the storm leading up to the event.

Attendees of the concert were instructed to upload money onto wristbands as the entire weekend on the island would be cash free. This left concert goers at risk because none of the food, sleeping arrangements, or basic sanitary needs that were promised were actually provided. The lucky ones who DID bring money were able to find taxis and/or local rides to town so they could rent hotel rooms.
Shivi Kumar, a 33 year old interviewed by The New York Times said at one point staff members dumped many unopened containers and instructed attendees to search through them looking for missing equipment from their tents. She said “it was everything from, like, bongos to floaties to sleeping bags.”

What was promised to be a luxurious weekend full of first-class culinary experiences promoted by models Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, and Emily Ratajkowski, where tickets began at $1,200, turned into a complete and utterly disaster. Blink 182 didn’t show. Disclosure didn’t show. Migos didn’t show; and neither did any of the celebrity attendees because they were informed by Fyre Media not to make the trip. This mess has formed into a $100 million lawsuit against Ja Rule, Billy McFarland, and Fyre Media on behalf of Daniel Jung and other attendees. The suit is filed due to the lack of adequate food, water, shelter, and medical care resulting in a dangerous situation where attendees were stranded on a remote island.
Ja Rule HAS apologized saying “it was NOT A SCAM” and that it is “NOT MY FAULT.”

Who knows what will happen with the lawsuit or if any of this will get sorted out. Stay alert for more updates as the days go on.
