Billy Mcfarland Fyre Festival

On May 1, 2017, Billy McFarland and Ja Rule,  Fyre Festival organizers were sued for $100 million in a class action lawsuit in relation to the failed Fyre Festival that left attendees stranded on the island without basic provisions.

In addition to the class action lawsuit filed, six federal and four individual lawsuits were filed in relation to the scheme and Billy McFarland was arrested by federal agents on June 30, 2017, and charged with wire fraud in relation to Fyre and Fyre Festival. He was later released on $300,000 bail on July 1.  He faced up to four years and nine months under U.S. sentencing guidelines, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Kristy Greenberg. She also said that Billy’s short but eventful career showed a “pattern of deception” and “overpromising luxury experiences that were not delivered”.

In July 2017, he was represented by a public defender at a bail hearing after his previous legal team “had not been paid enough to continue to represent him” but he later hired the private firm Boies, Schiller & Flexner as representation.

Later in March 2018, Billy McFarland pleaded guilty to two counts of wire fraud in Federal Court in Manhattan and admitted to using fake documents to attract investors to put more than $26 million into his company. He also agreed to forfeit over $26 million and June 12, 2018,  he was charged with selling fraudulent tickets to events such as the Met Gala, Burning Man, and Coachella while out on bail.

Billy was sentenced to six years in federal prison on October 11, 2018, and he is incarcerated at FCI Otisville, in Orange County, New York.
