Trivia

Bohemian caterer claimed this event cost her 50 k in news and documentary. The fund raising raised 158 k; she wants another 100 k after goal is reached every time since 100k had been raised. She is being greedy. Some attendees who made it to event showed pictures of food: two slices of bread, slice of cheese, bit of lettuce and 'unknown meat' as one put it. Why is she still asking for more money. See more »

Biting, surreal look behind the scenes of a disaster
21 January 2019 | by jehosaphet-58803See all my reviews

It was almost palpable, the sense of unease that you feel as the concert goers began to realize just how much of a disaster they'd signed up for...even though you knew it was coming. This was a very well told story, and aside from that, the best thing I could say is that it was told very to-the-point. It wasn't a long, rambling documentary...it said what needed to be said, yet also gives the viewer a nuanced view of just how some of the people behind this promotion were able to be dragged in over their heads. You can't help but feel for some of these guys, as they were taken for just as much of a ride as the festival attendees, but lost more than just the cost of a ticket. There's currently a Gofundme page set up for the owner of a restaurant who worked tirelessly to provide food for everyone, giving up her life savings in the process. Apparently she was very reluctant to speak on camera, as the issue is still very hurtful for her, but hopefully it'll end up being worth it for her having done so.

If you don't know much about this event, this is one heck of a story insofar as the difference between what was advertised and what was eventually produced, the dichotomy itself provided quite a bit of entertainment value with its "wow" factor. Great documentary on a very interesting part of our zeitgeist, a testament to the power of social media as well as its potential for abuse and the superficiality it helps foster.
