Watch: Netflix releases trailer for controversial Fyre Festival documentary

Watch: Netflix releases trailer for controversial Fyre Festival documentary

Netflix has released the trailer for its eye-opening documentary Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened.

The documentary explores the controversial Fyre Festival; a so-called music festival scheduled to take place in the summer of 2017.

Founded by Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule, the event was promised to be a luxury music festival on a private island in the Bahamas.

Ticket-buyers were sold a line-up of A-list performers, as well as parties with bikini-clad supermodels. Meals would be provided by celebrity chefs, while accommodation would include deluxe, eco-friendly domes.

Celebrities including Emily Ratajkowski and Bella Hadid were just some of the people paid to promote ticket sales across social media.

It sold out in just a few days; with day tickets priced from $500, and VIP weekend-tickets costing as much as $12,000. Money well spent for a luxurious festival like this, no?

Not quite.

When revellers arrived at the island, they discovered the reality was far from what they were promised. Think wet mattresses, cheese sandwiches, and not a music performance in sight.
