Kanye's $55 "Brunchella" Draws Fyre Festival Comparisons in Baton Rouge
Sunday Service attendees slammed event organizers for serving an unimpressive (at best) meal in Baton Rouge.
On Friday night, Kanye‘s Sunday Service descended upon Baton Rouge’s Bethany Church. Unlike previous installments, Friday’s version of the touring event series featured a “Brunchella” VIP package, offering a buffet-style meal ahead of the show for $55.
Attendees, however, were not divinely inspired by the spread. According to The Daily Mail, concert-goers reported being served cold pancakes, bacon, sausage, and grits. Some even shared photos of their (pretty sad) plates on Facebook and Twitter, which are now drawing comparisons to the infamous photo of Fyre Festival’s cheese sandwich”feast.”

And the menu wasn’t the only issue with Friday’s event. Billed as a 6pm performance, West arrived two hours late, as those who chose to pay $55 for a “free” service crammed into an unaccommodating VIP section. The Sunday Service series has previously drawn criticism for selling gaudily priced merchandise, including $60 t-shirts and crewnecks ranging from $170 to $250.
