The Contenders

Fyre Festival (2017)

To give you a hint - Many of the artists headlined for this Bahama vacation ended up pulling out weeks before, management was poor, the campsites were poor disaster relief tents, meals were poor, and many people were left waiting in airports as some were sent off to the wrong party. This is how you DON'T do a concert. - Swellow

Route 91 Harvest (2017)

This should be number 1

A mass shooting broke out, people thought there were fireworks, but then they found out it was a shooting.
58 people were killed and more than 500 people were injured, and it was confirmed the perpetrator was a 64 year old man named Stephen Paddock.
It was the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history and the deadliest attack in the U.S. since 9/11, both surpassing the Pulse nightclub attack in Orlando in 2016 and other shootings.
It was a horrible start to October and a horrible beginning for Fall, and shows us that our American Gun Control system is still not strong enough.
We should start helping everyone involved and both the children and families, because it's just unforgettable and truly horrific what we've come to and it's an example of creating fear in our lives. - Gregory
