The Fyre Festival bankruptcy case of 2017 is going to shade promoters of this ill-fated fraud. The trustee is seeking payout from the celebrities promoters of this event such as Blink-182, Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski.
Ed Martin and Seth Berenzweigh made these celebrities accountable for the fraudulent Fyre Festival during The Arbiter on ‘The Ingraham Angle.
Blink-182 is sued for $500,000 because he was the one who made the headline of this festival, though he dropped out later as soon as he realized its doom.
Billy McFarland was the organizer of that festival; he defrauds investors. Now trustee is filing a case to get a refund from the payees.
Creative Artists Agency (CAA) (Blink-182 agency) is also listed under the defendant in the case, and it is looking for $585,000 in liabilities. ICM represented Lil Yachty, Migos and Rae Sremmurd, and it is also seeking a refund from them. Those artists. Nue Agency represented Pusha T, Desiigner and Tyga, was sued for $730,000.
Yaron Lavi was the festival director who also sued for $315,000.
Blink-182 singer Matt Skiba explained NME “I had a bad feeling about that event. I consider myself a pagan and a witch. With every inch of my energy, I wanted Fyre not to happen. I put all the electricity and energy in my body against that thing happening.”
“We pulled out for technical and logistical issues, and the rest of it crumbled to s—t because that’s what it was,” he said. “It was bulls—t. I used my witchy ways, and it seemed to work. I’ll take responsibility, and everyone can blame me. Shazam. I was on my couch feeling somewhat guilty, but very relieved that I wasn’t there with people stealing from each other.”
“I didn’t want a bunch of people to be marooned on bulls—t island,” he clarified. “I put all my energy into it not happening because, for all the tea in China, I didn’t want to be a part of something like that.”
Model Jenner and Ratajkowksi also promoted this event on Instagram; they sued for $275,000 and $300,000 for this promotional act, respectively. It is mentioned in a lawsuit that keeping up the Kardashian star showed off “clear lack of good faith,” she didn’t say that her post as sponsored ads.
In 2018, Fyre Festival promoter McFarland was sentenced for six years. He admits that he defrauded investors with $26 million while he earned more than $100,000 in ticket selling of this festival. He unveiled all about this once he got arrested for this festival scam.
“The defendant is a serial fraudster,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald said.
“Mr. McFarland is a fraudster and not simply a misguided young man,” Buchwald said. “Bad intent was longstanding.” He added.
McFarland promoted Fyre Festival as the luxurious event where top celebrities will come, and the audience can come to see and meet them. Even they can get a chance to enjoy their company. It was regarded as the cultural experience of the decade. Bohemian island of Exuma was picked as the location of this event which was going to take place in Spring 2017.
People who bought the ticket after spending $1200 to over 100,000 was excited to see Blink-182 and Migos, but when they hit the spot, they come to know that musical acts were canceled.
Even they had no luxury accommodation and sumptuous food. They had to leave in tents and eat from packaged food.
Customers of Fyre Festival 2017 was so upset, and they took the matter to social media with the hashtag #fyrefraud.
