Fyre, a failed 2017 luxury music festival that stranded thousands of attendees on a private island in the Bahamas and sent promoter Billy McFarland to prison for fraud, is the subject of competing documentaries debuting this week on Hulu and Netflix.
Hulu’s 96-minute Fyre Fraud dropped yesterday while Netflix’s 97-minute Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened debuts Friday.
Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened comes from the director of the 2018 Emmy-nominated Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond, about Jim Carrey’s portrayal of Andy Kaufman in 1999’s Man on the Moon, that’s also available to Netflix subscribers.
Fyre Fraud comes from the directors of the 2017 Emmy nominated Welcome to Leith, about how a North Dakota town deals with a white supremacist in its midst, which originally aired on PBS’ Independent Lens. It can now be streamed free on Kanopy, or rented for $3.99 from other sources if you’re not a member of participating Kanopy libraries.
