A private dinner with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Front-row tickets to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. A seat at the invitation-only, $30,000-a-plate Met Gala. The offers sound almost too good to be true — and the people on the Fyre Festival email list receiving them should know.
The emails started in December, said Seth Crossno, who attended the ill-fated festival last April and reported on the disaster under the satirical Twitter persona “William Needham Finley IV.” They haven’t stopped since. “I get them pretty much every week. It’s hilarious," he said, adding that he knows of at least four people who attended the doomed festival and are now receiving the emails. Another attendee, who did not want her name on the record, also confirmed she was on the mailing list. Head over to @vicenews for the full story.
