The Fyre Festival documentaries now on Hulu and coming to Netflix are ... both good.

The docs are a little different. The Hulu one spends a little more time on ways in which the world of investing and "influencers" allowed this to happen. Netflix one has more of a tick-tock of the collapse.

And I think ultimately, the Hulu one treats it as a little more of a scam from the start, and the Netflix one a little more like it was a way overambitious hustle run by a guy who couldn't see reality. But those differences are minor.

Wow. I’d completely forgotten that happened. So much world happening in the last 18 months.

I'm not sure how you know it's the best one, but there's plenty of room for multiple looks at things.

I'm side-eyeing Netflix though given Jerry Media's involvement with promoting the festival.

Personally, I think the tone of it might have had to do with Expectations vs. Reality. The documentary teams didn't go to prove the Fyre festival would be trash, it just happened. I think the Netflix team was preparing to focus more on the event itself, rather than the lead up.

I don't know. Most of the footage from before/during seems to be stuff people took on their phones or for PR. I'm not sure these docs were underway until after.

Would you recommend watching both or just pick one?

The Netflix one is made with the company that promoted the festival so that makes sense they would want to downplay responsibility.

The scam angle sounds silly to me. They would have to know there would be lawsuits and maybe incarceration. The point of a scam is to run off with the money. Billy had nowhere to run. I think it was straight up incompetence. I really want to see this now.

Isn’t the Netflix one produced by one of the promoters?
