Andy King, the Fyre Festival producer, also labelled the ‘Blowjob King‘ for his willingness to offer a blowjob in exchange for water for patrons of the failed festival, is bringing forth a virtual music festival for Fyre Fest’s third anniversary – Room Service Festival.
With three years having passed since the doomed Fyre Festival took place, producer Andy King has revealed just how he intends to celebrate its anniversary: he’s putting on a virtual music festival that will take place this weekend.
Room Service Festival is set to be an EDM-centric experience, with King as MC to a lineup including American hip-hop rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, jack-of-all-trades musician Channel Tres, English singer-songwriter Yungblud, Canadian electro-funk duo Chromeo, Portuguese-American record producer and musician RAC, and so many more.
With Fyre Festival known world wide as an all around shit show, with acts that pulled out without patron knowledge, stages and areas not even built prior to the arrival of punters, and a lack of basic necessities such as food, water, and proper shelter, King has decided that he’d like to make something else out of the anniversary, so that we can keep things on a good point.
“This festival gives us a chance to translate the anniversary of Fyre into some real good that’s needed in the world right now,” King detailed in a statement. In previous efforts to redeem the festival, he tried to make things right in The Bahamas by revealing all the details of the failed festival in a Netflix documentary in order to pay the workers who tried to keep up with festival leader Billy McFarland‘s unattainable demands.
Set to take place this weekend, the Room Service Festival will take place via Trap Nation and Chill Nation‘s YouTube channels, and the entire virtual stream will be benefitting charity. All proceeds from the festival will be donated to Feeding America and Sweet Relief, with $15,000 being raised so far.
