    Default Hey kay-gee.........Bahamian Festival ?

    This is the headline to a story I read in The New York Times this morning:

    Fyre Festival, a Luxury Music Weekend, Crumbles in the Bahamas

    Too bad:
    The big festival was a total flop.........bad weather and inexperienced promoters (admittedly) in over their heads.
    Attendees shelling out $1200 up to $3500 only to find disaster.
    Gretsch USA & Zildjian
    (What Else Would I Ever Need ?)

    That will make it harder for next year. I mean you shell out that kind of money and it's a flop.

    Yep! but to be fair not the fault of the Bahamas or the Bahamian people. This was all put on by American promoters. They apparently did zero research before doing it. For one, thing, why on earth would you choose the same week as the national Regatta when resources are already tapped to the max?!! LOL It really is the joke of the town the last few days.

    Another thing...it is was closer to $8,000 if you preferred to sleep on a ship rather than a tent!

    all the best...
