Remember the much overhyped Fyre Music Festival that never was? Netflix has released the trailer for the appropriate titled documentary “Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened” promising an exclusive behind the scenes look at the infamous unraveling of the Fyre music festival. FYRE launches globally on Netflix on January 18.
Created by Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule, Fyre was promoted as a luxury music festival on a private island in the Bahamas featuring bikini-clad supermodels, A-List musical performances and posh amenities. Guests arrived to discover the reality was far from the promises.
Chris Smith, the director behind the Emmy Award Nominated documentary Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond, gives a first-hand look into disastrous crash of Fyre as told by the organizers themselves.
