Netflix has released their new trailer for their upcoming documentary, FYRE.

The doc is a behind-the-scenes look into the joint efforts of rapper Ja Rule and Billy McFarland’s 2017 Fyre Festival. Pegged as the festival of the century, the festival actually ended up being compared to a warzone. As thousands of tourists made their way to the Bahamian island of Great Exuma, the organizers experienced issues with the security, food, accommodations and artist relations. 

The festival was forced to postpone but those who had the misfortune of making it to Great Exuma were forced to huddle in tents and eat prepackaged sandwiches, despite paying thousands of dollars for luxury villa accommodation and gourmet food.

FYRE premieres on Netflix Jan. 18. Watch the trailer below.
