A friend of mine posted an event on Facebook last week titled “Fyre Festival At Ocean Beach” & it turns out many people were interested in attending.
Nearly 500 people are interested in a satirical take on the disastrous music festival that happened a few weeks ago.
A ticketing vendor is suing Fyre Festival organizers for $3.5 million. This is the latest lawsuit to be filed in relation to the failed luxury music festival created by Williams McFarland and rapper Ja Rule. The online ticketing platform, Tablelist, filed a lawsuit in Suffolk County Superior Court in Boston, Mass. and cites Fyre Media, Inc, Grand Margolia, and Carola Jain of breach of contract and fraud. Also, they are seeking damages since the company had to lay off 40 percent of its staff. Tablelist is accusing the group of convincing them to provide ticketing-processing services for a “fraudulent, highly orchestrated scheme” that was “falsely marketed as an ‘exclusive, luxury’ event.” — (link in bio to read more) #lawsuits #fyrefestival #tablelist #tickets #festivals #stacksmag #stacksmagazine
If you are interested, the fake Fyre Festival is taking place between 6-10PM on Thursday night May 18th at the Ocean Beach fire pits and will feature the music of the artists (on a Bluetooth speaker) who were supposed to play the original Fyre Festival before everything went awry.
You’re cordially invited to the US debut of Fyre Festival…
Billy and I are teaming up to provide yet another once-in-a-lifetime experience for you down at the newly renovated fire pits at Ocean Beach filled with zero celebrities (or Ja Rule), ok food from the nearby Safeway (chips, hot dogs, etc.), and of course, good times (*please see below).
Now we probably should’ve said this to everyone attending the inaugural festival, but there will be very limited beer and food to the point where it will be rationed so let’s consider this event to be BYOB.
Playing on the TBA bluetooth speaker company sponsored stage will be:
& more! (**please see below)
It is an unofficial event and is BYOB, though it is worth noting that booze technically is not allowed on the beach.
