The Fyre Festival returns

Date: December 6, 2024

In 2017, celebrities including Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid promoted the Fyre Festival, which was billed as a glamorous and luxurious destination music festival. The actual event turned out to be a fiasco, as attendees were stranded on a deserted island in the Bahamas, lacking water and served cheese sandwiches in foam containers (which is the opposite of goals on Instagram).

The “greatest party that never happened” became a punchline, as well as the focus of documentaries on Netflix and Hulu. But despite its infamy, the Fyre Festival’s return feels pretty on brand for 2024. In an announcement video, the disgraced Fyre Festival founder, Billy McFarland, explained that the idea to give it another go came to him “during a seven-month stint in solitary confinement."
