This Fyre Festival thing is sooooooooooooo weird. How did that HAPPEN?

— Sophie Campbell (@mooncalfe1) April 28, 2017


So Fyre Fest is a complete disaster. Mass chaos. No organization. No one knows where to go. There are no villas, just a disaster tent city.

So Fyre Festival is a glamping music festival on a private island in the Bahamas. No drudging through the sodden fields of Glastonbury with your yurt, this was a place for the rich to play. Privates flight to the island, high cuisine, bespoke high end tends, yachts, and of course the music from the biggest names.

This is how Fyre Fest handles luggage. Just drop it out of a shipping container. At night. With no lights. #fyrefestival

In reality, it’s one of those Christmas Festival events in a field that ends up making the national news because it’s just a six foot elf with a whippet with a red nose throwing torn up pieces of paper into the air and you’ve just paid £30 for your kids, promising a magical adventure.

These are the secure lockers at Fyre Fest. They forgot to tell us we needed locks. #fyrefestival #fyrefest

Which is why the attendees were forced to shelter in the airport as there was a) no food, b) there was a bit of a crime spree c) wild dogs roamed the area and d) the glamping tents were the worst.

And because all these people know how to do is to wail on social media, that is what they have done. And the world, riven by divisive politics has finally found a common cause.


Mocking rich, stupid people who don’t know how to look after themselves in the real world, but know how to point a cameraphone really well and type through the tears. The liberals laugh at the undeserved rich. The conservatives laugh at the folly of youth. And everyone tries to overlook the fact that some people may actually be really hurt because that would put a damper on things…

Do follow the tag.

Wow, congrats to @netflix for producing this #fyrefestival documentary so quickly.

.@WNFIV DashCon: I can’t believe I fucked up this bad. No one will ever outdo this. Ever. I’m the worst of all time.

Fyre Festival: Hold my beer.

These Fyre Festival stories perfectly encapsulate the horror I felt at Wilderness which was headlined by Ottolenghi. I am princess supreme.

For some reason I really want to watch The Producers tonight. #FyreFestival #TheOriginal

— Erica Henderson (@EricaFails) April 28, 2017

I hope #fyrefestival ends up being the thing that proves to everyone how easily the rich break down when mildly inconvenienced.

Hopping on a plane to head down for a relaxing weekend at Fyre Festival. Anything I need to know?

— No Cons For A Month! (@AshcanPress) April 28, 2017

I literally have no idea what Fyre Festival is and I don’t even care. I am living for these tweets.

#FyreFestival is proof that there ARE some good things about late-stage capitalism. Ahem, CRAPitalism.

Frustrated thinking about trying to get tickets/hotels to comic/game conventions? Look at #fyrefestival & realize it could be so much worse

— Graphic Policy (@graphicpolicy) April 28, 2017

Just remember, the #Fryefestival is a very good thing, and the #Fyrefestival is the messy thing down south.

— Jeff Smith (@TheComicHunter) April 28, 2017

Me *wakes up* *idly clicks on #fyrefestival*:

That #fyrefestival thing sounds like a hilarious mess…the women attendees must be terrified though, sounds realllllly dangerous, too.

— El Anderson (@FemmesinFridges) April 28, 2017

The cheapest yacht at FF is $60k, for 6 people max, for 2 days.

$50k on a yacht charter site I found puts 10 ppl in St. martin for 2 weeks.

— Iron Spike (@Iron_Spike) April 28, 2017

I didn’t really have any sympathy for these festival-goers to start with, but if you saw that shit and STILL WENT? Yeah.


— Iron Spike (@Iron_Spike) April 28, 2017

Guys. I know this feeling won’t last because something terrible is BOUND to happen, but this Fyre Festival mess is giving me LIFE.

Hey, @HitlerPuncher, what’s the best way to get yourself to STOP laughing uncontrollably after reading about #Fyre Festival?

— Trash Sultana (@Notintheface1) April 28, 2017

I think my favorite thing about the #fyrefest debacle is the forlorn pic of the unmanned concierge stand. THURSTON, WHATEVER SHALL WE DO?

— Wicked, Wild, & Woke (@fangirlsmash) April 28, 2017

#fyrefest garbage fire is fascinating.

fyre schadenfreude’s all fun and games until you realize we’re about to get a hundred thinkpieces blaming it all on millennials

— Greg Pak (@gregpak) April 28, 2017

#fyrefestival is evilly addictive this morning. It’s like Twitter NASCAR.

— Beth Elderkin (@BethElderkin) April 28, 2017

Soooo, this is not a good day to announce our partnership with Fyre Festival and the launch of FyreComicCon?

— Big Bang Comics (@TheBigBang_) April 28, 2017

Man. @PUBATTLEGROUNDS really went all out on their viral marketing with #fyrefestival.

Well, I don’t know everyone else but I went to the #Fyrefestival because I happen to LOVE cheese sandwiches. A+, better than Woodstock.

— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) April 28, 2017

I would like to promote more island disasters, volcano hikes, and antarctic camping to rich 20 somethings with $12k to burn. #fyrefestival

— Adam Blackhat (@AdamBlackhat) April 28, 2017

I dunno, @AdamRichman – I think we could clean up with a pop up at next year’s #fyrefestival – I’m already stocked!
