Fans will now get to see how Ja Rule’s ill-fated Fyre Festival unraveled in a new Netflix documentary. The streaming giant recently announced the upcoming documentary, Fyre, which will take a look at what went on behind-the-scenes and how the buzzed-about festival fell apart. A clip shared to Twitter shows festival-goers getting excited about the event, as organizers called it “the most exclusive festival the world has ever seen.” It also shows the mess fans were greeted with when they arrived — shoddy tents and lunches that were essentially just bread and cheese. Very exclusive. Organized by Fyre Media founder Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule, the luxury event was a disaster.

Rule later apologized for the event, “I don’t know how everything went so left but I’m working to make it right by making sure everyone is refunded.” McFarland was later sentenced to six years in prison for fraud and the festival was eventually hit with a $100 million class-action lawsuit. Netflix’s Fyre premieres January 18.
