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?
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.
