promised to be a luxurious retreat featuring headliner Blink-182 was instead a scene straight out of the Hunger Games with stranded attendees trying to leave the tents they stayed in. Naturally, the Fyre Festival piqued producers’ interest. Hulu and Netflix have both produced documentaries about the festival gone awry with release dates a few days apart. When the trailer for Netflix’s “Fyre” was released, it generated 3.4k posts. But Hulu’s “Fyre Fraud” surprise drop elicited 15k posts. So far, Hulu’s dominating the conversation about the Fyre Festival documentaries. The surprise drop contributed to its domination, but Hulu’s documentary is also lighter and more comedic in tone.
