The documentary is directed by Chris Smith (Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond) and produced by Vice Studios, Library Films and Jerry Media. According to Netflix, Fyre “gives a first-hand look into the disastrous crash of Fyre as told by the organizers themselves.”
Fyre Festival was planned to take place in April 2017 and was advertised as a luxury, celebrity- and model-filled event. Tickets costed between $4,000 to $12,000 USD. It was quickly revealed, however, that Fyre was a massive disaster and subsequently canceled. The event and its founders were then hit with a slew of lawsuits and fraud charges from the SEC.
