In case you didn't know, Fyre Fest is coming back!
Yes, that shitshow of a "festival" in the Bahamas, responsible for this iconic cheese sandwich!

Well, FYRE is coming back and tickets are very expensive.
The first 100 tickets apparently sold out at $499 each, and others are supposed to go on sale soon.
Because I kind of forgot some of the deets, let's take a look at some original artifacts from this colossal failure.
1.Let's rewind back to April 2017. People were just a few days out from the festival and very excited about the lineup.
#FyreFestival tomorrow ⛵️🏖
2.As this person appropriately said before boarding their flight: "YOLO."
@g_bluestone At MIA about to get on a flight there, YOLO 🔥 #fyrefestival
3.If you remember, people were already skeptical. The @FyreFraud page was documenting deleted Instagram comments on the official IG page. Shit was brewing.
These are the comments on Instagram that Fyre Festival deletes. #FyreFestival is a scam.
4.Still, though, people were ready...or so they thought.
5.They boarded planes to the Bahamas: "Getting Fyre fly ready for flight!!!"
Getting Fyre fly ready for flight!!! #fyre #fyrefestivalFiled under: Hollywood, Jeffrey "Ja Rule" Atkins #… https://t.co/566ZZoJNfQ
6.Things were already off to a rough start when they arrived at their "luxury transport" on school buses: "We had to get off at one point so it could make it up a hill."
Don't forget the luxury transport. An old school bus, which we had to get off at one point so it could make it up a hill #fyrefestival 😂🚌
7.They eventually made it, and this is what they saw:
Just a selection of the tents with holes in, broken doors etc. #fyrefest #fyrefestival
8.These were the lockers:
These are the secure lockers at Fyre Fest. They forgot to tell us we needed locks. #fyrefestival #fyrefest
9.These were the bathrooms:
Beautiful sunrise. With a toppled portaloo in the foreground. #fyrefest #FyreFestival
10.And these were the "accommodations":
Stuck at #fyrefestival trying to leave for the last 8 hours. barley any food or water or security or electricity
11."The doors didn't even close," this person said.
Shit strewn across the place. And the 'luxury' accommodation. The doors didn't even close. #fyrefest #FyreFestival
12.People had to fight for their life to get their luggage from giant shipping containers.
This is how Fyre Fest handles luggage. Just drop it out of a shipping container. At night. With no lights. #fyrefestival
13.Now let's talk about the food.

14.The food court was BLEAK.
The "gourmet cuisine" this weekend was included in the ticket cost. We are being fed salads and ham and cheese sandwiches out of this tent
15.I think I see a giant bag of raw carrots in the background.
One of the kitchens at Fyre Festival. #fyre #fyrefest #fyrefestival
16.And this was THE cheese sandwich seen round the world.
The dinner that @fyrefestival promised us was catered by Steven Starr is literally bread, cheese, and salad with dressing. #fyrefestival
17.People were losing their phones.
And it keeps getting funnier. #fyrefest #fyrefestival
18.This person called out for help from the US Embassy.
@USEmbassyNassau my phone dying Please send help 2 festival grounds Its chaos,tents are on fire, people fighting for food #fyrefestival
19.And this person said they needed therapy.
20.Meanwhile, the stage was set... but no one was there to play because all of the musicians canceled.
The stage would've been pretty lit too, honestly. Would've loved being plastered watching MIGOS on the beach
21.For those who survived that first harrowing night, the next morning was rough.
22.This was the "VIP breakfast":
23.By then, the medical team vanished.
24.People tried to leave and got locked in the airport.
25.And it was basically complete chaos.
We finally got on a plane at 1:30am and after 5 hours on the tarmac they kicked us off and told us to wait for another plane #fyrefest
26."My stomach is eating itself," this person said.
Welcome to Exuma! Sunrise at Fyre Fest. Still on the same plane we've been on since 1:30 am. My stomach is eating itself. #fyrefestival
The lucky survived*.
27.The only thing they have left, quite literally, are their wrist bands.
Yrs from now my children will find this & ask, "what's Fyre?" but to answer that I must 1st tell them the story of Ja Rule #fyrefestival
