Early reports indicate that the Fyre Festival(a music festival with ticket prices ranging from 12k to 250k) was just a huge scam and the festival now turned into a disaster zone. The scammers locked people inside the airport without food and water and they are now desperately crying for help on social media. The luxury appartments are nothing but tents and most of them weren't even assembled yet. It's now basically like Battle Royal down there with people fighting for scraps of food. It's just insane.

I could blame the rich kids of course but even if they are just stupid the sceanrio unfolding sounds pretty terrifiying for all the people involved.
This is why you never buy the first generation of new technology or go to the middle of nowhere for a first-time music festival. You wait so the kinks and bugs get worked out for the next time.
Don't tell that to those of us who made the inaugural Bonnaroo Festival. What a time...
I went. Stuck in traffic for 14 hours. Subsequent years were better, but I really felt bad for locals who got stuck on the highway with concert goers. I saw a van with a family and a newborn baby that was trapped all night on the highway with concert goers to go just five miles.
ETA: I mean you really get to know your fellow highway drivers in situations like that.

Here your lucky if a ticket for a headline act doesn't cost you a few hundred..minimum, that's for an evening.
A regular human being can't even get a ticket via Ticketmaster as they let resellers buy 90% of them, and take a cut after.
