Fyre Festival Promoter Pleads Guilty To Fraud Charges

The promoter of the failed Fyre Music Festival, Billy McFarland, has plead guilty to charges that could result in a prison sentence of over a decade. He sold tickets to an event which promised world-class performers, accommodations and more, but turned out to be a nightmare for attendees.

In addition to the 26-year-old Manhattan resident previously pleading guilty to defrauding investors and vendors in relationship to the 2017 festival in the Bahamas, he has now been charged with allegedly selling fraudulent tickets to fashion, music and sporting events.

To make the situation easy, McFarland admitted that he intended to defraud customers who bought tickets that didn’t exist. As part of his plea deal, he may face a sentence of between 11 and 14 years in prison.
