Fyre Festival 2 Is ‘Finally Happening’

The world’s worst music festival is back, baby! Fyre Festival founder Billy McFarland announced on Twitter that Fyre Festival 2 is indeed coming soon, though literally nobody asked for it.

For those of you who don’t remember the first Fyre Festival, it was the brainchild of McFarland, an entrepreneur who had the brilliant idea to throw a luxury music festival on a remote island in the Bahamas. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, as it turns out, pretty much everything. The festival — co-sponsored by Ja Rule and promoted by influencers like Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski — was supposed to be a weekend of glamour, exclusive concerts and partying, but it quickly turned into a weekend of chaos, disappointment and memes.

Attendees were promised a memorable weekend of luxury villas, gourmet food and a private island experience, but instead they got FEMA tents, cheese sandwiches and a small patch of beach next to a construction site. To make matters worse, many of them couldn’t even leave the island because their flights had been cancelled.

Since the disastrous weekend, McFarland was charged with wire fraud and faced 20 years in prison.

In true Fyre Festival fashion, there aren’t any details about the upcoming festival yet, other than the fact that it’s happening.

McFarland tweeted about the upcoming festival, and he wants people to pitch why they should be invited. Maybe this time he’ll deliver on his promises of luxury and exclusivity, or maybe he’ll just scam a bunch of rich kids again. We’re leaning towards the latter.
