Oh, Fyre Festival. The gift that keeps on giving.

When a gaggle of influencers pay a notorious scam artist thousands of dollars to fight for mattresses on a decrepit beach with less infrastructure than post-1986 Chernobyl, the Internet did what it did best—roast them.

From that cheese sandwich to the legendary Andy King, the imagery from Fyre Festival is timeless. To remember the best festival that never was on its four-year anniversary, here are the best memes from 2017 that helped take down Fyre's scammer-in-chief, Billy McFarland.
