Netflix to launch Fyre Festival documentary in 2019
On January 18, 2019, Netflix will launch Fyre - a documentary concerning the calamitous music competition fail that grabbed the worlds consideration in 2017, Fyre Festival. Directed by Chris Smith, the documentarian behind Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond, the movie will give viewers a "first-hand look into the disastrous crash of Fyre as informed by the organizers themselves."
Back in October, Fyre Festival's principal competition organizer and "serial fraudster" Billy McFarland was sentenced to 6 years in a federal penitentiary for a number of counts of fraud.
Netflix shouldn't be the one streaming platform to select up on the story of this music competition fiasco. In 2019, Hulu plans to launch a multi-episode documentary collection that's being produced by Billboard, Mic and The Cinemart. It options interviews with locals, distributors, buyers and naturally the competition attendees that had been left stranded in one of the vital outrageous festivals fails of all time.
