‘Fire Festival’ – which spawned two documentaries in 2019, including Netflix’s ‘Fire: The Greatest Party That Never Happened’ – was created by artist promotion app boss Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule. This should have happened in April and May 2017 in Great Exuma, Bahamas.

Instead, rock, pop, and hip-hop fans who had flown thousands of dollars from America found adequate food, shelter, and most of all, artist or music.

McFarland pleaded guilty to fraud in 2018, was sentenced to six years in prison and ordered to pay $26 million in restitution. Released halfway through his sentence and placed under house arrest, he has been free since last September.

This time, for “Fire Festival 2,” things will be different, the 30-year-old promised in a video on Instagram on Tuesday.

He points out that the first 100 tickets have all been sold and the money raised is being held in escrow until the closing date is announced, probably in late 2024.

But for now, beware of the risk of a second scam: Fyre 2 doesn’t have any concerts, or even a specific location for festival-goers. On the map of the site, fans fall directly into the middle of … the Caribbean Sea.
