Fyre Festival

Hulu announced this past spring that it will premiere a new multipart docuseries chronicling last year’s disastrous Fyre Festival, and Netflix looks to up the ante by revealing that it will also produce a documentary of the failed musical event, which was organized by the now-incarcerated Billy McFarland and Ja Rule.

Aptly dubbed Fyre, and directed by Chris Smith — with production courtesy of Vice Studios, Library Films, and Jerry Media — the forthcoming documentary “gives a first-hand look into the disastrous crash of Fyre as told by the organizers themselves,” according to Netflix. Fyre is slated to hit Netflix on January 18, 2019.

Watch the first trailer for Fyre below, then after, here are 10 other festival disasters you should know more about.
