Headliners for the event have pulled out last minute and guests have been stranded on the island. Reports of short supplies of food, drink, electricity, and muggings are creating chaos for festival goers who paid upwards of $12,000 for tickets to this “exclusive event”.


The festival paid social media influencers to promote the event with glamorous videos. Tickets for the event ranged from $4000USD – $250,000 for a VIP package split between 12 people. Festival goers were promised private beaches, luxury accommodation, and entertainment from acts such as Blink 182(who cancelled last week), Skepta, Rae Sremmurd, Desiigner, Tyga and Pusha-T.
