Fortnite Live is the Fyre festival of video game events
Submitted by Anders Batten on
Attendees of the first ever Fortnite Live festival were disappointed with the event complaining about long lines and lackluster attractions. The two-day festival, which took place at the Norfolk showground near Norwich, was advertised as "a celebration of the Fortnite game organised by fans for fans." Hundreds of people have demanded refunds after paying $15 to $20 for unlimited wristbands.
Parents were surprised to learn that the event only featured a few fairground attractions with limited space for children to participate. Photos posted to social media showed a "cave experience" that was only a truck with a tarp draped over it. Other "attractions" included a single climbing wall for over 3,000 children, four go karts and archery for four people.
