New trailer released for Netflix documentary exploring failed Fyre Festival

FYRE, by Emmy award-winning director Chris Smith (Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond), takes an in-depth look at the 2017 “luxury” music festival that never was.

The documentary focuses on the festival’s co-founder Billy McFarland who in October was imprisoned for multiple counts of fraud including for the failed Bahamas festival. The event, which saw some attendees fork out $4,000 per ticket, was cancelled due to a number of basic inadequacies such as lack of running water.
