Ah here.

Ron writes;

Inspired by Fyre Festival. Have you heard of Fyre Festival? If not, it was a festival in the Bahamas a few years ago, where people paid thousands to go to, it was meant to be very luxurious, yachts, models, etc., they even got Kardashians to post about it. It was a big fraud though, and when the guests arrived it was a total disaster. There was no music, no organisation at all, the tents were disaster relief tents, the cuisine was meant to be lobster etc. but just a slice of cheese on bread….
