Go to the Disastrous Fyre Festival? You Can Now Attend WayHome for Free
"We will have a beach this year at WayHome! No pigs though"
Published May 18, 2017The island-sized dumpster fire that was Fyre Festival was a concertgoer's worst nightmare, but for those who had their festival experience ruined by the lack of organization and loads of legal action, a Canadian festival is here to lend you a hand in making some better memories.
Organizers behind Ontario's WayHome Music and Arts Festival have announced they will be honouring tickets to Fyre Festival at their forthcoming 2017 edition, set to take place from July 28 to 30. As the festival wrote in a statement, the move comes from being "music fans first."
"The time, energy, commitment, hard-earned-cash & coordination it takes to have a time-of-your-life experience doesn't come easy — but is always worth it," the statement reads. "We will honour each ticket bought to the cancelled 2017 FYRE Festival with one free General Admission full-weekend ticket to WayHome 2017."
Though organizers acknowledge that "we cannot promise swimming adventures with pigs or fancy yachts," they promised to "help to fill a void & provide an experience to those who were unable to have the time-of-their-life at FYRE."
