People expecting a luxurious music festival with performances by Blink-182 and Migos and a Kardashian appearance paid upward of $12,000 to attend a music festival in the Bahamas hosted by Ja Rule. Yes, you read that correctly. Music. Blink 182. $12,000. Ja Rule. And it turned out to be everything they didn’t expect it to be.

What happens when you drop a bunch of people off in the middle of the Bahamas for this alleged Fyre Festival, not knowing that the promoters and acts had already backed out? It’s a complete Lord of the Rings and Hunger Games shit show.

As a reminder, Blink-182 was a headliner. Ja Rule was hosting this.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
