The Fyre Festival saga rumbles on. Having been forced to admit that they were "a little naive," (understatement of the year) as well as being expertly trolled by 50 Cent and facing a $100 million lawsuit, the most recent news surrounding the already-infamous festival is the most cringe-inducing yet. Vanity Fair have reportedly found the leak to the festival's pitch deck - and it's embarrassing on a whole new level for everyone connected to Fyre.
The pitch deck reads like one of the most botched plans since Brexit. Made up of a 43-page presentation featuring some utterly ridiculous propositions, the team behind the festival are presented as "The Fyre Squad." Then, there are the "Fyre Starters," who are the 400-or-so "Influencers" who promoted the festival (cringe). Check out the pitch deck's worst slides below, and the full presentation here.
A slide also promises “The actual experience exceeds all expectations and is something that’s hard to put to words. It will IGNITE that type of ENERGY, that type of POWER in our guests.” What concert-goers actually arrived to was questionable security, suspect cheese sandwiches and scenes straight out of Lord of the Flies - despite paying upwards of $1,500 for tickets - which Twitter duly had a field day with. Festival goers are now being offered a ticket to "next year's" festival in lieu of a refund, according to The Independent. Good luck trying to convince the attendees with that.
