The series, being produced by Billboard, Mic and The Cinemart, will debut on Hulu in 2019 and will detail what went wrong for the highly publicized event that was organized by Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule.
Last April, festival goers spent thousands of dollars to enjoy their favorite acts like Migos and Blink -182 on a private island in the Bahamas. Instead, they were greeted with half-built structures, dogs roaming the grounds and boxed lunches.
According to THR, “the series aims to uncover the truth through a series of in-depth interviews from inside sources that range from local Bahamians, stranded festival-goers, vendors and investors. In addition, the docuseries will include hours of exclusive never-before-seen footage, leaked documents, emails and recordings.”
The series will feature interviews with festivalgoers, employees and vendors.
