EXUMA ISLANDS (CBS NEWS) — The Fyre Pageant within the Bahamas, billed as a “luxurious” occasion that includes huge music acts and movie star cooks, is now canceled after a chaotic false begin, stranding indignant guests who shelled out hundreds of dollars to attend.
“On account of unexpected and extenuating circumstances, Fyre Pageant has been absolutely postponed,” the pageant tweeted on Friday. “After assessing the state of affairs this morning and taking a look at greatest choices for our friends, we can’t transfer ahead as we hoped we might. Presently, we’re working tirelessly to get flights scheduled and get all vacationers residence safely.”
The assertion was of little solace to those that have been already on the island. After guarantees of gourmand meals from superstar cooks, pageant-goes who arrived on Thursday have been handled to sandwich bread, salad and slices of cheese, one attendee claimed on Twitter.
Guests on the music occasion referred to as it a fraud. On its web site, the Fyre Pageant described itself a “cultural second created from a mix of music, artwork, and meals,” and an advert for the occasion stated it featured “one of the best in meals, artwork, music and journey.”
