From The Recent Fyre Festival: Five Of The World's Worst Music Festival Disasters Ever In History

The recent Fyre Festival was a spectacle for social media marketing. The campaign was a highly successful venture that reached three million social media users who were hyped about being part of an amazing, historical music festival.

The unprepared organizers and the absence of the festival's major acts have turned the festival into one of the world's most iconic music festival disasters in history. However, the world already had four of the worst ones.

The 2005 Glastonbury Music Festival was well attended, funded and organized. Acts were ready to play and the event went smoothly for a few hours until a violent storm drowned the stage and the campgrounds of audiences watching the vent. Worthy Farm, the venue of the event, and makeshift parking lots were submerged under four feet of water.

According to The Guardian UK, last year, Argentina's Time Warp festival, which brings the world's amazing independent dance music and crews from all over the world, had a great reputation in presenting talent of all nations. However, the overcrowded venue was overseen. Ventilation issues caused excessive heat in the extremely packed venue, which resulted to convulsions and heat strokes that killed six people. Add the use of illegal drugs and the musical disaster, the recipe is complete.

The recent Fyre Festival is definitely on the list of the most disastrous festivals in the world's music festival history. Having partygoers pay more than $400 to $12,000 per person to partake in the music of renowned artists on a private island is a difficult task. Faced with immense development issues, the music festival site turned to a refugee area with people unable to find food, water and sleeping quarters. Luggage where handled poorly and flights to return home were canceled.

In 2015, TomorrowWorld was set to become the most ambitious dance music festival in North America. Located in the Chattahoochee Hills in Atlanta, Georgia, TomorroWorld was supposed to be a memorable festival for the ears -- not until a huge storm hit the grounds. Everyone would have understood and would have forgiven the organizers, except they did not warn the fans about the damages.

According to EDM Sauce, the Roskilde Festival in Denmark in 2000 had almost torn down the house completely with fans accidentally killing co-festival goers. Nine individuals were suffocated and crushed to death by the stampede of fans watching their favorite bands.
