Fyre Festival 2? Ultra Music Festival leaves 80,000 stranded on Miami island
Miami's Ultra Music Festival has already been christen Fyre Festival 2 after epic-level disasters on the first day of the festival which saw a fire leave tens of thousands of attendees stranded on an island without transportation.
On Twitter, #FyreFestival2 was trending in South Florida – with users mostly complaining about the transportation.
According to Complex, "After the last show ended around 2 a.m., more than 50,000 concertgoers waited hours for shuttle buses that would take them from the island of Virginia Key to Miami. That or walking almost three miles back to the mainland to find transportation were the only choices."
In an official statement on Twitter, Ultra apologised for the confusion promising to fix issues for the two remaining nights. The company hosts festivals in 26 cities around the world each year including Singapore, China, Brazil and Japan.

The original Fyre Festival rose to fame after a new Netflix documentary showcased all that went wrong with the Fyre Festival in the Instagram-addicted world of today.
Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and Emily Ratajkowski to name a few, built anticipation for the ill-fated festival that basically turned into what the Netflix documentary termed "a tsunami of Schadenfreude".
