Travel Nightmare: Ja Rule Apologizes for Canceled ‘Luxury’ Concert Weekend

Ja Rule has issued an apology after the so-called luxury concert he helped organize in The Bahamas was canceled. “I’m heartbroken at this moment. My partners and I wanted this to be an amazing event … I don’t know how everything went left but I’m working to make it right by making sure everyone is refunded,” wrote Rule in a Twitter message. The Frye Festival was supposed to take place over two weekends beginning today, April 28th, on the island of Exumas, but organizers had to cancel the event. It was billed as a high-end affair with non-VIP attendees shelling out $12,000 per ticket. However, accommodations were far from luxurious. People took to social media upon their arrival Thursday to complain about the lodgings and food. Guests were expected to stay in tents with folding chairs and tables. They also said the five-star cuisine was actually a sandwich containing a few slices of cheese and a salad in Styrofoam containers. And their luggage was thrown from a shipping container in the dark of night.

Finley IV (@WNFIV) April 28, 2017 It seems the organizers also oversold the event. Some concertgoers never even made it to the festival site because the island was considered to be filled to capacity. Flights from Miami were grounded. Advertisements for the Frye Festival said Blink-182, Migos, Major Lazers, and more would perform. However, Blink-182 canceled their appearance, and it’s not even clear whether the other acts were scheduled to perform. Organizers initially said on Twitter that they were working to improve the disappointing conditions, but they canceled the entire event this morning. Now they’re working “tirelessly” to get all attendees home safely. Hopefully, they won’t have to spend another night sleeping outside in a tent and eating what amounts to free school lunch.
