Have you heard of the Fyre Fest?

It is (or, really, was) a two weekend "luxury" musical festival in Exumas, Bahamas featuring Migos, Major Lazer, Blink 182, Disclosure, Rae Sremmurd and more.

Tickets started at $1,500 and went up to $250,000 for packages which supposedly included airfare and amenity-filled luxury villas on an island that once belonged to Pablo Escobar.

The festival was the brainchild of Ja Rule and entrepreneur Billy MacFarland.

And it's been a complete and total disaster.

Festival goers started arriving on the island yesterday, only to find the accommodations more suited to refugees than revelers.

Twitter laughed and laughed:

Now the entire festival has been cancelled.

The Fyre Festival debacle may be over on the ground, but its effects will linger.
