Who’s back? Billy McFarland, the mastermind behind the infamous Fyre Festival fiasco, is back in action and he’s bringing you Fyre Festival II! In a YouTube video, he ecstatically announced that the festival is a go, even though he’s had quite the rollercoaster ride, including a stint in solitary confinement while in prison. He’s all about making the impossible happen and creating an extraordinary experience, or so he claims. Sound reminiscent of the last one?
He’s partnered up with what he calls the “best partners in the world” to bring his vision to life. But knowing Mr. McFarland’s track record, they are probably not that good. The event is set for the end of 2024, and while the location is going to be the Caribbean (again), specifics about dates and the lineup are still under wraps.
You can be part of this adventure by snagging a ticket, ranging from $499 to a whopping $7,999. If you missed out on the famine and disaster of the first Fyre Festival, here’s your chance to get “hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hoodwinked, and led astray,” just like Ja Rule and McFarland did back in the day.
Remember the original Fyre Festival? The one that promised luxury and delivered chaos, with cheese sandwiches and FEMA tents? Yep, that’s the one. Influencers like Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski, and other models helped hype it up, but it all crashed and burned epically. McFarland ended up with a prison sentence for defrauding investors and wire fraud.
After serving his time, he’s now focused on building a solid foundation and making a comeback. So, brace yourselves for Fyre Fest II, which is promising some vague VIP perks like “FYRE Pop-Ups”. Before you guys hate my boy, Billy, please watch the documentary on Netflix. I fell for it too, he is a good scammer.
For some reason, I actually trust Billy this time. I will be speaking to the higher-ups here at Total Frat Move and asking if I can go on a brand-sponsored trip to make content for Fyre Fest. I have a passion for exploring dumb things and I think this would be perfect.
If he drops another video like this hyping up Fyre Fest II, I will be in. You can’t tell me this doesn’t look dope.
