The Fyre Festival was one of those disasters that the world collectively couldn’t keep its eyes off of, with the internet gobbling up every detail and horror story that came out of the debacle with feverish abandon.
Well hopefully soon there’s going to be some more Fyre Festival content to gobble up — Hulu is in the early stages of developing a docuseries about the self-described luxury music festival with the help of Billboard, Mic, and The Cinemart. It’s expected to come out in 2019, The Hollywood Reporter reported Monday.

If you missed the hubbub about the pseudo-festival from last spring, or need a refresher, here’s how it went down:
People paid exorbitant amounts of money (read: $12,000 for the weekend) to attend the Fyre Festival, which was organized by Fyre Media owner Billy McFarland and the rapper Ja Rule. It was supposed to be a luxurious weekend filled with music from bands like Blink-182 and top-tier food, all on an island in the Bahamas.
Except almost everything outside of the fact that it took place on an island turned out to be false. The food was abysmal, Blink-182 pulled out thanks to lack of payment, and the lodgings and amenities might as well have been non-existent.
The Hulu docuseries will attempt to get to bottom of exactly where and how everything went wrong with the Fyre Festival with in-depth interviews. According to THR, everyone from local Bahamians, attendees, and employees will be interviewed along with never-before-seen footage and insider information.
