EXUMAS, The Bahamas – It was billed as a luxury concert experience in the Bahamas, replete with big name artists, gourmet food and opulent accommodations.
Instead, festival attendees found conditions to be anything but luxurious upon their arrival on Thursday.
What they were greeted with upon arrival were tents with folding chairs and tables, while five-star food turned out to be two slices of bread, a couple slices of cheese and salad served in a Styrofoam boxes.
Unsurprisingly, internet trolls have had little sympathy for the people who paid up to $12,000 per ticket for a non-VIP experience.
Twitter and other social media sites have exploded with funny responses to the plight of the people who shelled out thousands, only to be marooned in paradise.
The least Kendall Jenner can do is fly a helicopter to #fyrefestival and throw some Pepsi their way🙄— Benjamin (@mota_ben) April 28, 2017
#fyrefestival sounds like something that Tom and Jean-Ralphio arranged as a publicity stunt for Entertainment 720.— Travis (@TravisG93) April 28, 2017
This whole #fyrefestival incident is reminding me too much of Ben Wyatt's Ice Town from Parks and Recreation.— 🌻 Misty Jordan 🌻 (@MistyDawn_95) April 28, 2017
