Just read that Netflix is showing a documentary on this fiasco in January.

I'll bet that the documentary of this cluster fuck will make more money than the Fyre Festival lost.

It just popped up on my Hulu today.  Having nothing to do this evening except play with a suspect 5R lamp and script a firework display for next month I gave it a watch.  Interesting...

Watched both the Hulu and Netflix documentaries.
The Netflix version was more "fun", with more actual footage of the unfolding of the mess and the minions who had to try to deal with it going down. The Hulu version was more oriented towards the scammer, Billy McFarland's machinations.

It is funny that Ja Rule, the man with the Fyre Fest "idea" recent booking app emulating the "Fyre" "book your own artist" concept is called ICONN,  with the tagline “Book your OWN shows... Be your OWN boss... Become an ICONN".

Another con game..

I wonder if Carl Icahn is investing in iConn?

Looks like Carl Icahn has had plenty of his own con games going on without investing in Ja Rule!

On the Iconn (short for "Ice Connect"  ::) ) website it says:

"We are very excited to announce our recent partnership with S.K.A.M. Artists Management!"

I'd have thought Ja Rule had spent enough time in jail already...

I just heard some story about McFarland trying to get one of his guys to perform sexual favors to the Bahamian Customs agents in order to get their trucks full of water out of customs holding.   :o
