Despite the infamous failure of the original Fyre Festival, it appears that there is still significant interest in the event. Billy McFarland’s proposed Fyre Fest 2.0 reportedly sold out of pre-sale tickets almost immediately. However, there are still no clear details about the lineup or what the festival will entail.
The first 100 passes were made available to the public for $499, according to an interview McFarland gave to TMZ. He stated that these tickets sold out very quickly.
McFarland, who was recently released from prison following the disastrous first run of Fyre Festival, had to pay back millions to investors after the original event went awry. The festival became infamous for leaving attendees stranded on an island with limited resources, leading to several documentaries being made about the debacle.
McFarland has promised that Fyre Fest 2.0 will take place somewhere in the Caribbean at the end of 2024. Additional tickets will be made available for purchase at a later date, with some of the higher ticket tiers reportedly costing over $7000.
In addition to his plans for Fyre Fest 2.0, McFarland has also hinted at a potential Broadway musical. Given his track record, however, the public may view his ideas with skepticism.
For those interested in potentially attending a festival with no confirmed performers and the possibility of limited supplies, keep an eye out for the next Fyre Fest 2.0 ticket release.
