There's too much to explain, but basically some company out there sold all these tickets costing thousands of dollars each to lots of people. They were promised a music festival with luxury accommodations on this private island in the Bahamas, but when they got there, the whole place was not even half-built and there were no bands or artists playing. There also wasn't enough food and water for nearly 2 days. People tried to leave, but all flights back were canceled and they were stranded there. A bunch of Victoria's Secret models and Ja Rule were promoting it, also Ja Rule was organizing a lot of it.
It didn't take long for those hipster yuppies to turn on each other, and start stealing from each other either. I read somewhere that it was originally supposed to take place on this other island that was a lot nicer, but that there was already this native Bahamas music festival going on, which made it impossible. They reportedly tried to ask the authorities of the Bahamas to re-schedule, which of course they refused and pointed out how arrogant and blind they were for asking that. So at the last minute, the ones organizing it tried to move it to another island that wasn't as nice, which is why the whole place was left unfinished and with next to no security. The stands and tents and whatnot were also reportedly blowing over due to lots of wind. There were also a bunch of wild dogs and pigs on the island.
It's funny the official promo is still up, they haven't removed it. Either they are delusional and think this is still gonna happen or they forgot to take it down:
Those Victoria's Secret models were reportedly paid $250,000 (each) just to advertise it on Twitter, plus they got free VIP tickets to the thing... Then were told at the very last minute to not go, meanwhile they let everyone else arrive at the island. Maybe Ja Rule and that douchey looking prick thought it would be funny. Only one of those models actually apologized for promoting it, I guess she actually has some sense of compassion.
Good. Last thing I read about was that smug looking prick trying to get all those lawsuits dismissed, I'm glad justice was served. I guess that means they won't be doing the festival next year like they said.
Svperstar: I ordered pizza last week and it got here in like 25 minutes, later I got an email that said "Sorry you pizza was so late here is a code for a free pizza on us". Score.

sj: Sorry for your loss. There is no why, dude. Tragic things happen to everybody sooner or later, and often (if not, typically) without reason.

sj: Jordan Peterson offers some of pretty good insight on these sort of issues (he has vids on YT), imo. I think a message he often conveys is that life is full of hardship & tragedy, and it's up to individuals to create meaning in their own lives.
