Fyre festival is a classical example of a example of a failed event in recent times. It was even labeled a Frye Fraud where all the event goers felt they were scammed into the biggest event fraud in the States. Frye festival founded by Billy McFarland CEO of Fyre Media Inc, and rapper Ja Rule with the sole intent of promoting the company’s Fyre app for booking music talent. The festival was scheduled to take place from April 28–30 and May 5–7, 2017, on the Bahamian island of Great Exuma. The event was promoted on Instagram by “social media influencers” including socialite and model Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, and model Emily Ratajkowski, many of whom did not initially disclose they had been paid to do so. During the Fyre Festival’s inaugural weekend, the event experienced problems related to security, food, accommodations, medical services and artist relations, resulting in the festival being postponed indefinitely. Instead of the luxury villas and gourmet meals for which festival attendees paid thousands of dollars, they received prepackaged sandwiches and FEMA tents as their accommodations.
