Vice Noisy: This Is What Fyre Festival Could Have Been If It Wasn’t Such a Disaster

Tmrw.Tday is a new festival in Jamaica, but with more focus on the vibes.

Fyre Festival and its tale of myriad problems has been recounted so often it’s practically already folklore. To briefly recap: the “once-in-a-lifetime” April 2017 event spectacularly collapsed as airlines grounded and cancelled flights, headline acts pulled out and luxury necessities resembled little more than emergency relief supplies. A dazzling shitshow of our time.

In retrospect, Fyre Festival was doomed to collapse head over arse into the balmy waters of the Exumas. But what if it went ahead? A new festival called Tmrw.Tday, taking place in Jamaica a few weeks later, lightly mirrors what Ja Rule and his 25-year-old business partner could have achieved if their shit had been together. At least that’s how it comes across in the festival’s marketing, anyway.

On a balmy late May evening under the stars at Chris Blackwell’s stunning cliffside hotel The Caves in Negril, Jamaica, legendary producer Lee “Scratch” Perry strolls up to the DJ booth and takes the microphone.

For the next 45 minutes Scratch, now 81, his hair and beard dyed cherry-red, freestyles lyrics as DJ (or selector, in Jamaican parlance). Kingston Dub Club owner Gabre Selassie tweaks his mixing console’s controls, manipulating the riddim track, transforming the bass line into a recurring thunderous boom.

By: Brad Auerbach – Forbes Magazine

Two recent inaugural island festivals are a study in how to organize a successful gathering. The Tmrw.Tday festival in Jamaica’s Negril was a resounding success. A few weeks earlier, the Fyre festival in the Bahamas has left a wake of lawsuits.

Between the two festivals I spoke with Tmrw.Tday’s organizer Andrew Christoforou. I asked him the inevitable question, what about the blowback from the Fyre debacle in the Bahamas?

Guests and partners have been sending articles, and with our partners in the festival and concert business, some alarm bells have been raised. But our sales have not been not affected. In fact, the reports have galvanized us to review with a fine tooth comb all elements of security and logistics, all management meetings, bar services, regulations, client safety and protocol. On balance, it is a good thing, it brought us to take a harder look on everything.
