Fyre Festival was supposed to be an exclusive festival on a private island in the Bahamas with top acts, glamping and gourmet food. Tickets cost from $450 to $12,000. But now the festival has been called off, flights axed and party-goers left stranded and needing assistance from the U.S. embassy.
Fyre Festival's first Instagram posts from Dec. 2016 was a video that features models Hailey Baldwin, Bella Hadid, and Emily Ratajkowski swimming in the gorgeous waters of the Bahamas. It touted the event as "two transformative weekends" and "the best in food, art, music, and adventure."
But no one could have expected just how far the reality was from what was promised.
