FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened

In 2017, one of the worst planned events of all time took place. And it was called the Fyre Festival. This festival was so bad that it left its patrons stranded in the Bahamas with nowhere safe to rest and not enough food to eat. It also didn’t pay many of its key employees for their labour. 

FYRE is a doco that unpacks who created this festival, what went wrong, and how this disaster could have been prevented. It’s uncowardly critique of the hybris of us humans.
