The Island Featured In The Fyre Fest Promotional Video Is For Sale
Here’s the golden opportunity Ja Rule’s been waiting for! The island of dreams, Saddleback Cay where the now infamous Fyre Fest promotional video was filmed, is on the market for $11.8 million. I was thinking maybe Ja Rule would like to buy it for his planned recreation of “the most iconic music festival that never was”. Or he could use the purchase to get his Robin Hood on and give it back to the Bahamian people he helped screw over. I know Ja Rule probably can’t afford it on his own, but if he’s willing to suck up his pride, 50 Cent would almost certainly be willing to loan him something for a down payment.
According to the island’s Sotheby’s listing:
Saddleback Cay, a private Bahamas island named by locals because of its shape as seen at sea level. It’s situated on the northern tip of Norman’s Cay in the northern part of the Exuma Cays. Norman’s Cay has a 5,000 foot airstrip making Saddleback Cay easily accessible but still private.
There are 47 acres and 7 pristine white sand beaches with elevations up to 90 feet plus a protected deep water harbour accessible from the Atlantic side. With the Exuma National Sea & Land Park on your doorstep this area is known for its world-class sailing, fishing and boating attracting visitors and private island owners from all over the world.
Too bad it’s haunted. And not just by fellow Exuma private island resident Johnny Depp’s career. It’s also haunted by a sad cheese sandwich. But if you can get past the tortured screams of a thousand influencers that whip across the island day and night, it seems like an incredible, and iconic, investment opportunity.
