The Fyre Festival Pitch Deck Has Been Leaked And You Have To See It To Believe It

The pitch deck for the infamous failed Fyre Festival has been leaked, and much like every other aspect of the disastrous event, it has to be seen to be believed.

Almost two years after the "festival" took place, Fyre is more relevant than ever, thanks to the Netflix documentary FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened and Hulu's Fyre Fraud..

People all over the world are in complete shock that such a monumental f*ck up was allowed to happen on such a huge scale, and right before our very eyes. But, if we've learned anything from Fyre Festival, it's that social media isn't what it seems, and to never trust Billy McFarland.

The latter became evidently clear in both Fyre documentaries, but more evidence has just emerged as someone has leaked the pitch deck for the event on LinkedIn, and if we didn't know better - we'd assume it was some sort of humorous parody.

In between ridiculously over exaggerated statistics and Fyre puns, it's a pretty incredible read.

The leaked deck was uploaded by Alvin Hussey, who highlighted his favourite point as being "what if we reimagined what it means to attend a music festival?" Well, I'm sure being stranded on an island in the Bahamas with no water to drink, no music, virtually no food and nothing to natural disaster relief tents to sleep in isn't exactly what the guests had in mind when they thought they were attending a festival.

Anyone who watched either of the documentaries knows that in the days leading up to the "festival", organisers were yet to confirm an official line up, and it's no surprise after reading in the deck: "We take no direct liability for any bookings made with FYRE. Each agreement is between talent and the buyer." So, put simply Fyre didn't guarantee any of their own bookings. Incredible stuff.

It goes on to invite investors to "Come, seek, for searching is the foundation of fortune," which is ironic considering the festival quite literally turned into a free-for-all as guests scavenged for bedding, water and food.

You really outdid yourself, Fyre Festival.
