It was supposed to be a unique experience. It turned into a public relations and financial nightmare. What happened at the now infamous Fyre Festival?
An exclusive behind the scenes look at the infamous unraveling of the Fyre music festival. Created by Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule, Fyre was promoted as a luxury music festival on a private island in the Bahamas featuring bikini-clad supermodels, A-List musical performances and posh amenities.
