On the “worst festival in history” will release a documentary series in the service Hulu

Service Hulu will remove a multi-series documentary about the failed music festival Fyre Fest, which in the press was nicknamed “the worst in history.” This is reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

While the project does not have an approved name, it will be developed by Mic, Billboard and Cinemart theaters. The series will consist of interviews with festival staff, local residents of the Bahamas, suppliers and deceived visitors. Also, the authors claim that some documents, emails and notes were placed at their disposal.

The creators of the documentary project will try to restore the chronology of events and explain what happened – from the beginning of the event to its abolition. Special attention will be paid to the legal consequences of fraud. The show’s premiere is scheduled for Hulu in 2019.

 At the end of April, 2017, businessman Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule planned to organize an “exclusive” music festival Fyre Fest in the Bahamas. Guests of the festival were promised great artists, food from a famous chef and comfortable apartments. However, musicians on Fyre Fest did not come, and visitors of the event got broken tents and sandwiches with cheese. The press called the event “the worst festival in history,” and McFarland, in response, announced plans to try to make it again in 2018.

On March 7, 2018, one of the organizers of the festival, Billy McFarland, admittedguilt in two cases of fraud. He said that he lied to investors and “greatly underestimated the resources necessary for such a festival.” Now McFarland faces 8 to 10 years in prison and a serious fine.
