This weekend, I wrote about the debacle known as the Fyre Festival. It was supposed to be a luxury music festival. Hyped by celebrity model endorsers, it ended up as a disastrous exercise in defrauding ultra-rich millennials.

Now the Fyre story gets even juicier.

Someone has leaked the sales deck for investor pitches. And this presentation, revealed in a Vanity Fair article, is ridiculous. It is filled with pointless buzzwords and slick imagery, models, and so-called influencers. Watch to see if this features in any of the announced class-action lawsuits.


Since we wrote our post, one of our fellow writers on Boarding Area gave a detailed review that’s worth checking out.

This whole event unfolded about as badly as possible although there are no reports yet of anyone getting zika. So maybe it’s not all bad.
