The $12,000 Fyre Festival essentially turned into ‘The Hunger Games,’ and fortunately for us, people who were unlucky enough to attend documented their disastrous experiences on Twitter. Check out the funny pics of deserted concierge stations, gross food and more!
Fyre Festival was supposed to be the most lit event of the year. A music festival backed by Ja Rule, taking place on an exclusive tropical island in the Bahamas with chef-prepared meals, luxury villas and yachts, all for only $12k — what more could a well-heeled Millennial ask for? Little did they know…
If you told me yesterday that Ja Rule would start a prison camp for Instagram kids in the Bahamas, I woulda called you mad. #fyrefestival

Fans are sharing the chaos on Twitter with the hashtag #dumpsterfyre (genius). Many are pointing out that the “luxury” tents provided by the fest resemble disaster relief tents, which is actually pretty fitting if you consider how people are being flown out of the island in an emergency fashion now that the event has been postponed (read: canceled.) “This is how Fyre Fest handles luggage. Just drop it out of a shipping container. At night. With no lights,” one person tweeted. Yikes. Below is one pic of a sad meal resembling that time Spongebob learned about salad, and you can click through our gallery to more of the best tweets!

The festival has since been “postponed” (duh). “After assessing the situation this morning and looking at best options for our guests, we cannot move forward as we hoped we could,” organizers tweeted. “At this time, we are working tirelessly to get flights scheduled and get all travelers home safely.” Good luck, everyone.
