William McFarland, who is still awaiting sentencing for the failed festival, has now been charged by the Southern District of NY with selling tickets that did not exist to marquee sports and music events.
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.
According to the U.S. Attorney, around March 2018 McFarland owned "NYC VIP Access", a company that purported to sell tickets to high profile events, but in reality no tickets existed. And he'd told his workers that he would flee if he is sentenced to over three years in prison next week, she said.
What's more, McFarland allegedly committed these scams after he had already been charged over Fyre Festival and was awaiting trial.
McFarland, 26, sold fake tickets to exclusive events, including the Met Gala and Coachella, for several months while he was awaiting sentencing for charges related to the Fyre Festival, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY.
In the government's statement, McFarland is accused of bilking ticket buyers out of around $100,000, including $36,000 in fraudulent tickets to this year's Met Gala and $1,300 to Burning Man.
However, McFarland was charged with an additional count of wire fraud and money laundering late Tuesday afternoon by the Southern District of NY. 15 people allegedly bought tickets from the company, totaling $100,000. He's also accused of attempting to hide his involvement with NYC VIP Access by posing as the company's other employees. As his Fyre Festival co-hort Ja Rule would sing, McFarland best prepare for some good "Thug Lovin'".
"In March of 2018, William McFarland pled guilty to defrauding investors and vendors of the Fyre Festival, but it is apparent that he did not stop there", FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge William F. Sweeney Jr. He faces up to 10 years in prison on those counts.
