Fyre Festival Turned Out to be an Utter Disaster, and @Iron_Spike is Our New Bae.

Here’s what I know about music festivals. They’re super expensive to put on, require months of planning and logistics, and typically the headliner has to be an act that justifies ticket prices in the hundreds of dollar range.

What’s not to love about the idea of you and a 50,000 of your new best friends getting to watch acts like Slayer, M.I.A., or Kool Keith? Well, maybe the 50,000 or more people bit.

I suppose that’s where the exclusivity of Fyre Festival wanted to make it’s niche. It was billed as a multi-day “luxury experience” with ticket prices going into the hundreds thousand dollar range with optional extras, and the opportunity to see none other than the generation-defining band hacks Blink 182.

You know what, I’m just gonna let twitter do the talking for a few.


This is where it gets good.

 

So basically festival goers paid thousands of dollars for tickets to the festival, flights, and were expecting luxury accommodations. Instead what they got makes Point Lookout from Fallout 3 look like a 5 star experience.

Give me a minute. giphy (2) I could totally spend hours roasting Fyre Festival’s basic premise. I could mock their investor pitch until my eyes bleed. I could look on with bitter disdain as I try to understand who in their right mind thinks that because you pay to be near a model you’ll have anything more than the vaguest of interactions with someone a person you’ll never meet again.
could do that.  But I do have to remember that the people affected by this unfortunate circumstance are people with unique thoughts, feelings, and dreams of seeing Blink 182. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

When I was done laughing uncontrollably at the side show that Fyre Festival became I got a chance to discover something new. @Iron_Spike is legit.

Thanks to Fyre Festival I’m now genuinely a fan of Iron Circus Comics. I do hope everyone who went out to the festival gets home safely.
