The Fyre Festival has been hit with two different lawsuits following a failed launch last week. Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule were heading the operation, and the people who paid between $4,000 and $12,000 per ticket were met with unlivable conditions and no concert at all.

Plenty of attendees have spoken out about the event, but now staff members are speaking out from behind the scenes as well. Some of them are claiming that the creators knew exactly what was happening and didn’t put a stop to it before

“They did know. It’s so gross to me that [McFarland] says they were naïve — they had been told at every point that it was impossible and they ignored it. The infrastructure just wasn’t there. It had to be built. [Fyre] hired a bunch of professionals and the professionals told them it was impossible — and they couldn’t handle that, so they fired everyone.

“I think the statement they released is a slap in the face to the people on the island and the production company that did end up working with them. They just didn’t want to hear it.”
