I really enjoyed the documentary. Thought it was well done. I just kept saying, how dumb are the people that signed up to go? They are like 2-3 weeks out and dont know about their plane reservations/food situation/living quarters and then the website/emails go dark for like a week before the event. People are dumb (mostly millennials of course at that event), but why would you spend that kind of money and not have the whole thing locked in WAY before you stepped on a plane?

I can understand how his staff all rallied behind him and tried to advise him without saying no. Steve Jobs has a similar story except his ends up as an incredible success. They would fire people that did not agree and never accept no for an answer. They would make ridicolus demands and promises that were not realistic and expect their team to pul miracle after miracle. I actually worked for a guy like that 30 years ago that was a coke head, but great visionary and one hell of a great salesman. Of course he ended up in jail, broke and screwing everybody out of millions of dollars as well..

There is already a Fyre Festival post down a few. Hard to tell inside because it somehow became a political rant.....again.
