The Fyre Festival Pitch Presentation Has Resurfaced Online And It Is Absolutely Bonkers
"What if we reimagined what it means to attend a music festival?"
The pitch presentation used by the big brains behind the disastrous Fyre Festival has resurfaced online. And good grief, it is a lot.
The investment deck, which was shown to potential investors, first leaked back in 2017, but has resurfaced recently after being shared on LinkedIn. If you missed it the first time, well then strap the fuck in for 43 mind-boggling pages of inspirational quotes, marketing gibbering and about half a million puns on the word Fyre.
“What if we reimagined what it means to attend a music festival,” asks one slide early in the presentation. “The actual experience exceeds all expectations and is hard to put into words.”
Hey, they’re not wrong!
“Fyre has a unique goal and inspiration: the exploration of the uncharted inspired by and referencing the five elements of the earth,” the document continues, before promising to leverage “global access to talent and our understanding of the millennial demographic to create the cultural experience of the decade.”
It also touts access to influencers, dubbed “Fyre starters”, including Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid. How’d that work out for them again?
The document has inspired a fresh new wave of Fyre Festival memes, which is good because I was worried we were starting to run out.

People are really sharing the Fyre Festival pitch deck on LinkedIn, saying things like “sure, it was a scam, but the design is clean and the deck flows…” pic.twitter.com/rW4cTKv6gB

I hope to never work anywhere that uses the word “ideate” in a slide deck. https://t.co/3sVWaFv0Kd
