Fyre Festival’s water bottle legend Andy King announces UK tour

The 'Fyre-side Chat' shows begin next month

Andy King, the breakout star of last year’s Fyre Festival documentary, is heading out on a UK tour next month. Check out the schedule below.

King appeared in Netflix‘s 2019 film Fyre, which delved into the planning of Billy McFarland’s disastrous Bahamas festival.

The event planner went on to become a viral hit following the documentary’s arrival, with him admitting on camera that he was “prepared to suck dick” in order to secure a shipment of water for Fyre Festival.

Continuing to enjoy his newfound – albeit unexpected – fame, King has confirmed that he’ll be hitting the road for a string of shows in April.

Kicking off in Norwich on April 20, the ‘Fyre-side Chat’ tour will see King recall his experiences working at Fyre Festival over the course of one hour. He will then invite audience members to ask him questions in a 30-minute Q&A session.

“It’s so great to be able to bring Andy King over to the UK for the first time as part of a national tour,” says Native Talks’ Mensa Akwasi.

“The man became a meme after the incredible Fyre Festival documentary and we hope to bring the entertaining speaker to the masses later this month. It’s also very fitting that the documentary is now one year old and we hope to further expand on Andy’s inside knowledge from the best event that never happened.”

King is also due to visit cities such as Brighton, Glasgow, Sheffield, and Newcastle throughout April and into early May. The tour will conclude with a show at University College London on May 2.
