This New Netflix Show Has Made Fyre Festival Into A Horror

If Fyre Festival and Lost had a baby...

As awful as the cheese sandwiches and broken promises were, at least it didn’t involve severed fingers.

The infamous Fyre Festival was basically a horror show for anyone who attended, but Netflix's latest series is an obvious takedown of the festival from hell. 

The trailer for The I-Land features sweeping shots of crystal blue water, swirling trance music, hot girls in bikinis and even a pig on the beach. And much like the fake music festival that never was, things on "the I-Land" aren't what they seem - but pretty soon, this island adventure is somehow even more disastrous than Fyre Festival.

The I-Land is set to hit Netflix next month, and it’s essentially Lost on steroids.

According to the synopsis, The I-Land begins when “ten people wake up on a treacherous island with no memory of who they are or how they got there, they set off on a trek to try to get back home."

“They soon discover this world is not as it seems. Faced with the I-Land’s extreme psychological and physical challenges, they must rise to their better selves — or die as their worst ones.”

What that means is unclear. Do some of these "extreme psychological challenges" have to do with not getting enough likes on Instagram? Not securing a #sponcon opportunity? Forgetting the password to your IG account? The horrors are endless.

We kid, the trailer alone is enough to keep you up at night. 

The seven-episode series is set to star Kate Bosworth, Alex Pettyfer, Natalie Martinez, Ronald Peet, Kyle Schmid, Kota Eberhardt, Sibylla Deen, Anthony Lee Medina, Gilles Geary, and Michele Veintimilla. 

The I-Land is set to hit Netflix mid-September, so clear your weekends and invite your loved ones over. We’re not too sure what to expect, but we do know it’s going to be terrifying.
