The utter chaos that erupted after it became clear that organizers had not foreseen enough shuttle buses to drive back that nearly 50,000 attendees of the Miami ‘Ultra Music Festival’ and many tens of thousands of them decided to walk the three miles by themselves to get back to the city has caused many on social media to label the festival the ‘Fyre Festival 2’ in reference to the shambolic Bahamas music event that never took place.
Concertgoers were filmed crossing Rickenbacker Causeway back to Miami in the middle of night after a panic erupted when a tree caught fire as festival-goers stood in line waiting for shuttle buses.
The festival had been moved to Virginia Key when an emergency lawsuit from the island’s Brickell Home Owners Association caused the relocation.
Lawyer David Winker said: “Virginia Key is an utterly inappropriate venue for ULTRA.”

Luckily for the organizers, they didn’t invite Ja Rule on stage.
