There’s trouble in paradise.

The organizers of the much-hyped Fyre music festival in the Bahamas have been forced to cancel the weekend extravaganza at the last minute.

Tickets for the event described as “a cultural moment created from a blend of music, art, and food” started at $10,000.

GA is sold out. Tent, home & yacht packages are still available. Get your tickets soon, before they’re all gone!

The announcement concerning the “once-in-a-lifetime” event was made on Fyre's Twitter and website after many fans had already arrived.

Those expecting to party with models, like Bella Hadid, Victoria’s Secret Angel Elsa Hosk, Emily Ratajkowski and Sports Illustrated swimsuit pinup Rose Bertram voiced their frustrations on social media.

One attendee told Billboard that the tents designed for the guests “are so poorly made that they’d blow over in a second if there was any wind or rain.”

Event organizers said they were working to arrange flights to Miami for those who had already arrived in Exuma and said inbound flights had been canceled.

Fyre Festival originally promised “culinary delights and luxury” over two weekends. Instead, attendees complained about disorganization and accommodations in social media posts.

The festival, which was organized by rapper Ja Rule, originally scheduled an all-star lineup of entertainers, including Blink-182 and Kylie Jenner’s on-and-off-again beau, rapper Tyga. However, Blink-182 canceled the gig even before the event-wide cancellation.
