The Week contest: Festival fail
Last week's question: The luxury Fyre Festival was canceled last week after music lovers who had paid up to $50,000 for opulent accommodations and celebrity-chef meals in the Bahamas turned up to find a tent city on a trash-strewn beach. If a musician were to write a song about the disastrous festival, what should the track be titled?
