“Authentic” Fyre Festival Merchandise Is Available On eBay For Absurd Prices
You remember whensocial media had a field day with the non-event.
Stranded attendees who shelled out thousands of dollars for access to the festivities documented the hazardous conditionswhile the rest of us refreshed Twitter in horror. (Im still not over it.)
Unsurprisingly, what was once simplybranded merchandise is selling at a high price point. Its memorabilia, yall, and the world is here to buy it.
Lets walkthrough eBays Fyre Festival search results.
A Yellow Hoody, Size Large
Someone already purchased this brand new, snuggly gem back in May for a mere $300.
It was still in the packaging, protected from all the BS. What a find!
A Fyre Festival Weekend 1 Artist Pass
The seller notes on this already-sold listingmake it seem authentic: Infamous Fyre Festival authentic memorabilia [sic] worn on site weekend 1.
(I almost forgot there was supposed to be another weekend, to be honest.)
Could wesay thedistressed pattern foreshadowed what was to come?
An Branded External Battery Pack
As Im writing this, the bidding for a branded external battery pack is ongoing. The seller notes mention that there is no box for it.
I kind of want it.
An Authentic Fyre Festival Dad Hat
With a little less than a week to go before the bidding ends on this hat, Id saythe seller is bound to get well over the current $55 for the rare merchandise.
You could say itsFyre.
This is potentially just the beginning of the Fyre Festival eBay revival. Once other attendees catch wind of the absurd prices people are paying for the merch, they might start adding theirs to the auction site, too.
If (or, when) they do, Illbe watching.
