People who paid for a "luxury" concert called Fyre Festival in the Bahamas that cost up to $49,000 a ticket are angry that the pop-up tents, band cancellations and sliced bread with cheese are not what they expected.
The Fyre Festival was billed as "your secret hideaway in the Exumas" and "a departure from the familiar" in Great

Ja Rule said in a statement on Twitter he was "heartbroken" over how the event turned out, and stated the event was "NOT A SCAM," as well as "NOT MY FAULT."
