What could be worse than buying a ticket to a pizza festival and showing up only to realise that there is no pizza?
TBH, not a lot if said pizza festival ticket set you back $75.
Enter all of these people on the internet who are distraught at splashing out on a ticket only for all of the 'free', (ahem not free, $75), pizza samples not to show up.
Just empty tents and the odd miserable-looking slice.
Oh and the whole thing was set in a car park. So they didn't even have nice views.
On the weekend of the festival, the company updated its Facebook page saying there had been delays in the pizza deliveries and warning people not to come to the event.
"Hi guys, we've been hit by an incredible amount of delays in pizza delivery", they wrote.
"Fresh, diverse, and delicious pizza was supposed to be delivered every 30minutes.
A make-up tasting will be announced shortly.
"Sincere apologies. Please do not come for the rest of the night's tastings."
Since the non-starter festival, angry customers who splashed out on the tickets have reported the event as a scam, and some news channels in America say that it is being investigated.
My roommate paid $40 for a "Pizza Festival" that ended up being 3 booths in a Brooklyn parking lot, which is the most New York scam ever.- Jules (@jules_su) September 10, 2017
@Aputumpu pizza festival with no pizza? Incredibly disappointed with this entire event. How soon will you be offering refunds?- radam gnarcia (@digamaraca) September 9, 2017
The 'Fyre festival of the food and drink world' has traumatised people so badly that support Facebook groups have been set up by those affected.
Tbh, in hindsight, they could have put that $75 to much better use - i.e. a huge Domino's order.
