First 100 tickets for FYRE Festival II sold out, Billy McFarland says

SAN FRANCISCO — Remember when thousands of people were stranded in the Bahamas in 2017?

Well, the ill-fated FYRE Festival might be happening again.

Billy McFarland, the festival’s promoter, pleaded guilty to fraud and was sentenced to prison in 2018 as a result of the original botched Fyre Festival.

If you can believe it, the first 100 tickets for Fyre Festival II are already sold out.
