Qatar World Cup ‘Fan Village’ Set To Fyre Festival | Rare Techy
This year’s World Cup was a mess before it started. Qatar, located in western Asia, has proven a controversial choice for leadership and is notorious for its human rights abuses. Indeed, thousands of migrant workers have died over the past 12 years to prepare for the event. In protest, many big-name artists have turned down offers to play. Now some of the 1.5 million expected to attend the month-long event are getting a rude awakening.
Since Qatar is located on a smaller peninsula than Connecticut, it can be difficult to get housing. There are few hotels to accommodate the crowds; Airbnbs have proven to be very affordable for many. The solution: Pay about $200 a night — over 29 days — to stay at the Fan Village Cabins Free Zone, a series of artificial portacabins in the desert, about a 20-minute metro ride away. from the city of Doha, where the matches are held. it happens.
Just hours before the World Cup kicks off on Sunday, parts of the Fan Village are still under construction. Those who arrived on time were in for a rude awakening. It’s made of thick plastic that gets very hot during the day, it’s not insulating but it’s a simple electronic pass. Rains and sinks produce brown water.
In other words, it didn’t feel like a good trip.
Prediction: Qatar’s World Cup will be an ugly spectacle

We spent the night in a fan village near Lusail Stadium. Visitors are carefully checked in to see that they cannot buy drinking water without a wristband. It’s 30 degrees. The nearest store is an hour’s walk away. No one knows where the hands are. We say the festival starts at 6.30pm pic.twitter.com/Fi7DPXqnrq

Indeed, comparisons to the famous Fyre Festival of 2017, which ended with its founder, artist Billy McFarland, were sentenced to six years in prison. Now in the halfway house, it’s true fishing for a Mulligan.
I like to go above and beyond bad manners and bad manners, we are also doing the world cup as a kind of big event of the fire menu. https://t.co/M42GOsqDdn

Plan B: Some fans stay in neighboring countries and fly in for the main races. But not everyone can get on a plane in a month. Anyway, what’s the problem.
