AIBU to think the organisers were out to make a quick buck, and to therefore be most entertained at how much of a cock up this was?

It has to have been some sort of a scam on some level, I think someone has been taking the piss out of the organisers and their lack of experience!
The prices people paid are breathtaking - I thought Glastonbury was expensive but this sounds extortionate.
Twitter has been rather entertaining over the last day or so grin

I have met lots of people and teams who are overly ambitious when outting on events. People who've never successfully delivered a project underestimate how much work it is. That's what we're seeing here, I think.

Understatement of the year:

Twitter is SO entertaining grin

And they're planning it again for next year - ticket, anyone?!

I thought Blink 182s statement was interesting.

On one level you could think they were breaking up again but on another you might think they were lacking accommodation, food, stage...

Agree it's been very entertaining and Twitter has been in fine form!

Is it bad that I've just been scouring instagram for #fyrefestival posts?!

I read an interesting article by someone who was hired by the organisers, and after a week, they handed in their notice as it was obvious it was all going to go wrong.

I read that too.
