This month's generic insult: "You are the Frye Festival of <insert field of work>!"
I'll bet if we enlisted 4Chan, we could make it seem like being called Fyre Festival was always the ultimate insult in the production world, by the end of the week.

Potential felon / alleged fraudster Billy McFarland tells employees they won't get paid for the most recent 2 weeks of work, nor going forward.

What a colossal grade A douchebag.


I see many years of lawsuits, criminal investigations, and hopefully prison time in store for McFarland and Ja Rule. Not sure why anyone would choose to stick with his company as a volunteer. I guess the cult of personality overrules logic.

A new development.

I don't know how true this is, just passing on what I saw.

If it is true-it is bad news for somebody.

The Production company needs to make a deal with the Bahamian government. Try to pay a portion of the customs bill and get their equipment back and then both of them together can go after the Fyre Festival fruadsters.

My WAG is that for about $1m you could pay customs bill, get the stuff off the island and hold superior rights under international maritime law.

It sounds like we need a few folks with some spare coin to buy up this package and sell it back to the owners who *might* recover enough from shitstain tech-bro McFarland and JaRule (who is being sued separately for default on a loan he took out to help finance the fest) to recover it.

Anyone like auctions?
