Yesterday, details emerged about the chaotic roll-out and postponement of Fyre Festival, a luxury festival that was scheduled to take place in the Bahamas this weekend. The campsite seemed to be half-finished, bands cancelled, and planes were reportedly grounded because the island was at capacity. An apology was issued from festival co-creator Ja Rule, and co-organizer Billy McFarland promised that a make-up festival will happen next year. Apparently, the events surrounding Fyre Festival sound a lot like a film that Seth Rogen and the Lonely Island are working on.
“This seems like a good time to mention the movie we are making with @thelonelyisland about a music festival that goes HORRIBLY WRONG,” Rogen tweeted. The Lonely Island replied, “For real, thinking about suing #FyreFestival for stealing our idea.” Pitchfork has reached out to representatives for Rogen, Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer for comment.
