I’m not 100% sure what we’re supposed to think about this whole #FyreFestival debacle.
Are we supposed to hate the rich kids for wanting to go on an admittedly luxurious festival holiday? Are we supposed to hate the organizers for their scam? The influencers for hawking that shit? The artists for taking what money they could get and running?
Can’t figure out the bad guys in this scene because all the stories seem to want to just blame everyone.

  1. We’ve just confirmed the GoFundMe for #fyrefestival is a scam, but Doctors Without Borders is there on the ground now with avocado toast.

  2. I searched facebook tags for one comment that was somewhat balanced and didn’t immediately target “rich trustfund kids”. Yours was the closest I found. Kinda messed up that the majority of the population are happy to bathe in the misfortune of some random humans that just wanted to go to a festival on an island.

  3. I don’t hate rich kids but I’m not shedding any tears for them either. if the worst of it was stolen property and cheese sandwiches, I think they’ll be ok. No one was spending their last 12k on a private island festival headlined by blink 182.

  4. This first person account of someone hired to be a talent scout (who ended up quitting because it was disorganized) doesn’t point fingers necessarily — what it seems to point to though is that the founders/organizers vastly underestimated this kind of large scale event production. http://nymag.com/…/fyre-festival-exumas-bahamas…
