Cercle's First Festival is compared to Fyre Festival

Over the last few years, we’ve been loving Cercle and everything they do. The french platform, well known for streaming live DJ sets from gorgeous historic or natural locations, has captivated us with sets from the most mesmerizing places such as Pão de Açúcar in Brazil, the Eiffel Tower in Paris and even an ancient temple in Armenia.

This past weekend, with the 500th year anniversary of the Chateau de Chambord, in France, Cercle threw its first ever festival, bringing to this magical castle an incredible lineup with Solomun, Stephan Bodzin, Polo & Pan and Bon Entendeur, among some other french stars.

The event generated a lot of hype not only between french people but also at an international scale, with ravers coming from all corners of the world specifically for this magical evening. But, due to some growing pains and learning curve issues, the logistics didn’t go as planned, and attendees tookto the social networks to complain. According to some users on Cercle’s Facebook Page, the event was a ‘total disaster”, with some people even comparing it to the infamous Fyre Festival.

Cercle took to Facebook to issue a lengthy apology to explain what went wrong and why:

In spite of all these issues, the people that could get in had a wonderful time. Solomun gave a unique performance, making all the wait worth the while. As for Cercle, this was just a hiccup on its already impressive journey. We are confident they will do better next time!
