A luxury music festival in the Bahamas, touted by Kendall Jenner, has been postponed amid an onslaught of complaints from attendees on social media (and those gripes are, in turn, being widely mocked on social channels).

“So Fyre Fest is a complete disaster,” tweeted William N. Finley IV, who documented his experience on Twitter with a series of photos showing “mass chaos,” “no villas” and a “disaster tent city.”

Alleged guests also aired complaints in a Reddit thread. Gripes ranged from being locked out of a first aid tent to overhearing what sounded like gunshots. “Is there anyone nearby who’s willing to stage a rescue mission??? I just want to get my gf and get the **** out of here!,” wrote user Freddy_Flamo.

The official website for the Fyre Festival posted a statement at midday Monday that reads, “Fyre Festival set out to provide a once-in-a-lifetime musical experience on the Islands of the Exumas. Due to circumstances out of our control, the physical infrastructure was not in place on time and we are unable to fulfill on that vision safely and enjoyably for our guests.”

It was touted as a luxury festival, with some VIP packages on sale for up to $250,000, some packages including a private yacht. The band Blink-182 bowed out at the last minute. Staffers were few and far between.

Ja Rule was one of the event’s organizers, for which the the lowest ticket price was $450. The package that was being pushed the most, however, was the $12,000 one.

Trevor DeHass, another attendee, also tweeted about his time spent at the festival, sharing an image of two slices of bread, a slice of cheese and small salad for dinner Thursday — not up to the upscale standards advertised for the all-inclusive weekend.

The festival lineup was scheduled to include high-profile acts like Ja Rule — who was also one of the event’s organizers — Daya and Tyga.
