Billy McFarland, the low-rent scam artist responsible for the festival disaster heard 'round the internet, is back in trouble for conning people again.
Billy McFarland, the promoter of the failed Fyre Festival in the Bahamas, leaves federal court after pleading guilty to wire fraud charges, Tuesday, March 6, 2018, in NY. He's also had to come up with $26 million to repay those festival investors he defrauded. The event was advertised on social media by Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and other high-profile social media influencers.
Attendees at Fyre Festival in the Bahamas were promised a luxurious, private party, but instead found themselves eating bread and cheese sandwiches under a tent.
In a complaint and affidavit released late Tuesday by U.S. Attorney's Office of the Southern District of NY, the government accuses McFarland of starting a company called NYC VIP Access, which purported to sell tickets to high-end events including the Met Gala and the Grammy Awards.
The "tickets", which were supposedly intended for events including this year's Grammys, the Super Bowl, Coachella, the Met Gala and Burning Man, were sold to 15 people and amounted to almost $100,000. An attorney for McFarland did not immediately respond to Variety's request for comment.

McFarland faces new charges of money laundering and wire fraud. Both carry sentences of up to 20 years in prison.
"Mr. McFarland is looking at a significant term of imprisonment". On Tuesday, he was charged with starting another fraudulent company late past year and running it right up until he entered his guilty plea for Fyre Festival three months ago.
