The festival crew was seen dropping luggage out of a shipping container at night without any lighting. Then, Finley posted the above photo of what was supposed to be secured lockers at Fyre.
“These are the secure lockers at Fyre Fest. They forgot to tell us we needed locks,” he tweeted. When it came time for dinner, they were served “literally slices of bread, cheese, and salad with no dressing,” according to Finley. Things got so bad that the festival creators had no choice but to do the unexpected…
By Friday morning, the first day of the festival, a Fyre Festival Twitter account posted that the festival had been postponed:
“Due to unforeseen and extenuating circumstances, Fyre Festival has been fully postponed. After assessing the situation this morning and looking at best options for our guests, we cannot move forward as we hoped we could. At this time, we are working tirelessly to get flights scheduled and get all travelers home safely.”
On Monday, it was reported that Mark Geragos, a prominent lawyer who has represented Michael Jackson and Chris Brown, filed a $100 million lawsuit against Ja Rule, Billy McFarland, and Fyre Media.
The suit was filed on behalf of Daniel Jung and other attendees, claiming the festival was “nothing more than a get-rich-quick scam from the very beginning.” He also stated that the festival lacked “adequate food, water, shelter, and medical care,” putting attendees in a very dangerous environment.
