Hulu released a surprise documentary on the ill-fated Fyre Festival — beating out rival Netflix’s previously announced doc on the same topic.

  • Hulu’s documentary is titled “Fyre Fraud.”
  • Netflix, meanwhile, has been promoting the simply named “Fyre.”
  • Both films document the downward spiral of the Fyre Festival, a 2017 musical festival in the Bahamas that was promoted as a luxury event but ended up with attendees in tents eating food scraped together at the last minute — and without much of the promised entertainment.
