Ultra’s shuttle service at the end of day 1 earned it the hashtag #FyreFestival2 on social media. The denunciation was ultimately unearned as the festival quickly improved its shuttle service for day 2, and even more so on day 3. But the irony was not lost on the universe as Andy King was attending the festival, the first since Fyre.
You might not recognize the name immediately, but King was the “dick sucking guy” in the Netflix documentary about the festival. In an Instagram post on Sunday, he posted a picture of himself at Ultra’s main stage with the caption, “Attending my first festival since FYRE…taking notes,” with a laughing emoji.
Surely the irony wasn’t lost on King himself.
The festival ended its 21st edition on Sunday night with a headlining performance from The Chainsmokers, who brought out Illenium to debut their forthcoming collaboration.
Ultra aims to return to Virginia Key in 2020, this time with a full year of planning rather than a hasty three months. We’re excited to see what the difference brings.
