Fyre

In January the documentary Fyre, the most exclusive party that never happened, premiered on Netflix. The film narrates the planning and development of the Fyre Festival, a music festival on an island in the Bahamas that promised luxury and fun. Thanks to an aggressive campaign on social networks, the festival sold out its tickets in hours. However, production failed to deliver even 1% of what they promised. The Disaster Artist The documentary makes clear how Billy McFarland, the head behind the event, occupied in his favor different elements of the millennial culture to swindle both the attendees and the team that worked with him.

Definitely freelancer work and technology ventures are much more common today than in my parents’ time. The almost normalized cell dependence has allowed apps to monetize enough for their developers to earn money in a job where they “define their own schedule.”

In that environment emerges the figure of Billy McFarland, the man behind the idea of ​​Fyre Festival, It Chapter 2 who began his career with another venture called Magnises (also linked to the idea of ​​exclusive events and luxury). McFarland had contact with the world of start ups, investors who believed in his speech and young people willing to work with him. Let’s not forget that the initial idea was that Fyre Festival was an event to launch the Fyre App. This app was looking for an ordinary person (but with high purchasing power) could hire important artists for private events (because we all know how terrible it is to find a musical number for our birthday party).

At present, the image of the ambitious, exploitative 80-year-old boss who treats his employees badly is criticized. These people continue to exist (some involved in controversies regarding private beaches) so the millennial spirit is strongly linked to the idea of ​​leadership over the supreme authority of the boss. There are hundreds of cliche phrases to exemplify the differences: the boss inspires fear, the leader leader. The boss says “I”, the leader says “we”. The boss looks for responsible, the leader looks for solutions. If you watched the documentary, maybe you’ll hear that last phrase.

On several occasions the people in charge of different areas of the Fyre Festival (whose responsibilities can not be very clear) Five Feet Apart mention that they made Billy McFarland see the possible crisis. McFarland responded with the classic “let’s look for solutions”. The man is described as charismatic and it is clear that he used the phrases and attitudes of leader that made his team feel committed to him.

As the documentary progresses, I feel that nobody from the team left the project because their salaries were withheld (they would only be paid once the festival ended). Or maybe nobody wanted to defect after so much time and effort invested. Optimism blinded them all.

Goodbye to the mystical memory of Woodstock where it is spoken of Jimi Hendrix or Janis Joplin. A Private War It is true that the festival should continue to have a good list of artists, but for a while it has ceased to be the most important thing, it is enough to see how the green tickets of Lollapalooza are sold out in hours. Festivals stopped being products and became experiences. Producers must ensure that the whole experience is satisfactory (worth posting on Instagram) and that it has a certain degree of exclusivity (if everyone can have it, it is absurd to “take it out” on social networks).
