The organizer of the #FyreFestival will spend the next six years in the feds. According to #BillyMcFarland’s. He was found guilty of wire fraud after scamming over 80 investors out of $26 million and leaving hundreds of ticket buyers stranded at his failed #musicfestival in theBahamas last year. __________________________________________ Billy scammed festival goers into thinking they will receive luxury accommodations and A-list performances. Prosecutors also said the festival’s website identified its location as “Fyre Cay,” a place that doesn’t exist but was being advertised as a private island that drug lord Pablo once owned.
Do you remember Fyre Festival, aka one of the biggest fails of 2017? If not, here’s a sad photo of the camping grounds to refresh your memory.
The event was marketed as a luxury music festival set in the Bahamas. However, when guests arrived, it was so far from it. For the people who weren’t there, we all had to rely on what was being on social media but it’s not like we have all the answers. But that’s all about to change because Netflix is releasing a documentary about the fiasco. Just watching the teaser trailer has me so excited to see what really went down.
All we have to do is wait till Jan. 18 to get all the answers. Who else is preparing a viewing party?
