The Fyre Festival was dictated to be a weekend of luxury, music,
and merrymaking on a beach in a Bahamas.


What happened instead
was an epic disaster, with attendees
angry of half-built tents, unsound food and drinks, and
canceled performances.

Now a event’s organizers, a rapper Ja Rule and tech
businessman Billy McFarland of
Magnises
and Fyre Media,
face a lawsuit
filed on Sunday by Mark Geragos, a celebrity
hearing lawyer.

The fit was filed in a US District Court for a Central
District of California, and Geragos is seeking class-action
standing with an expected 150 participants,
according to Variety
. The plaintiff is Daniel Jung.

Jung is accusing a organizers of fraud, crack of contract,
crack of compact of good faith, and negligent
misrepresentation. The lawsuit seeks during slightest $100 million in
damages.

There
were meaningful signs
that a festival would not go according
to plan.


According to The Wall Street Journal
, there had for weeks
been concerns about either a eventuality would happen. Its
organizers had missed several payments to performers, yet they
seemed to have held adult before it began. Some attendees were
shaken since few logistical sum had been communicated to
them. Sources told The Journal that contractors disturbed about the
organizers’ miss of festival experience.

Documents filed in a lawsuit lay that a Fyre Festival’s
organizers were wakeful of a issues and had reached out to
celebrities previously to tell them not to come to a Bahamas.

“More troublingly, Mr. McFarland and Mr. Atkins began personally
reaching out to performers and celebrities in allege of the
festival and warned them not to attend — acknowledging a fact
that a festival was outrageously underequipped and potentially
dangerous for anyone in attendance,” a lawsuit says.
“Nevertheless, defendants refused to advise attendees about the
dangerous conditions available them on a island. Defendants only
‘cancelled’ a eventuality on a morning of a initial day — after
thousands of attendees had already arrived and were
stranded, though food, water, or shelter.”

A horde of supermodels had promoted a festival on amicable media,
including Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Emily Ratajkowski, and
Bella Hadid. Blink-182, Major Lazer, Migos, Tyga, and Disclosure
were among a artists scheduled to perform, according to the
festival’s promotions. Blink-182 dropped
out of a festival
on Thursday before it began.

“This vast disaster to prepare, joined with defendants’
counsel falsehoods in compelling a island ‘experience,’
demonstrates that a Fyre Festival was zero some-more than a
get-rich-quick fraud from a really beginning,” a lawsuit says.
“Defendants dictated to fleece attendees for hundreds of millions
of dollars by inducing them to fly to a remote island without
food, preserve or H2O — and though courtesy to what competence happen
to them after that.”

Tickets cost adult to $12,000, though reports have pronounced some attendees
paid tighten to or over $100,000 for a weekend.
