Netflix to release Fyre Festival documentary in 2019
Written by worlddancefm on 15th December 2018
On January 18, 2019, Netflix will release Fyre – a documentary about the calamitous Fyre Festival that grabbed the world’s attention in 2017.
Directed by Chris Smith, the documentarian behind Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond, the film will give viewers a “first-hand look into the disastrous crash of Fyre as told by the organisers themselves.”
Back in October, Fyre Festival’s main festival organiser and “serial fraudster” Billy McFarland was sentenced to six years in a federal penitentiary for multiple counts of fraud.
Netflix is not the only streaming platform to pick up on the story of this music festival fiasco. In 2019, Hulu plans to release a multi-episode documentary series that is being produced by Billboard, Mic and The Cinemart. It features interviews with locals, vendors, investors and of course the festival attendees that were left stranded in one of the most outrageous festivals fails of all time.
