Pre-sale tickets for Billy McFarland's Fyre Festival 2 have sold out despite no lineup or location

Pre-sale tickets for Billy McFarland's Fyre Festival 2 have sold out despite no lineup or location

People have forked out incredible sums of money to be the first to have tickets.

Despite Fyre Festival being one of the most disastrous pop culture moments of this century, it seems like people are willing to give it another chance.

Convicted fraudster Billy McFarland revealed this week that he was coming back with a second dose of his music festival.

He didn't unveil much, except for that it will take place in the Caribbean and it'll take place towards the end of next year.

In a clip shared on YouTube, a white-bathrobe clad McFarland said: "This is a big day.

"It has been the absolute wildest journey to get here, and it really all started during a seventh-month stint in solitary confinement.

"I wrote out this 50-page plan of how it would take this overall interest and demand in Fyre and how it would take my ability bring people from around the world together to make the impossible happen."

He explained that he has been working with ‘best partners in the world’, who gave him the opportunity for ‘me to be me, while executing Fyre's vision to the highest level’.

After looking at potential festival locations in the Middle East and South America, he had eventually settled on the Caribbean.

While Fyre Festival 2 might be a little less than a year and a half away, he teased ‘pop-ups and events’ would happen across the globe prior to the festival’s relaunch.

Despite no specific date or location being announced, ticket prices have been revealed and will set folks back as much as $7,999 (£6,259).

The festival’s site lists ticket prices starting at $499 (£313) for ‘The First 100’ tickets, with the price then rising to $799 (£625) for the 101 to 500 tickets sold. ‘Pre-sale 1’ tickets start at $1,799 (£1,407) with ‘Pre-sale last chance’ tickets a whopping $7,999.

What's more mind-blowing than McFarland wanting to do another Fyre Festival is that people are down to party, according to TMZ.

Billy says the first batch of 100 pre-sale tickets have already sold out.

Keep in mind, these ticket-holders still have no idea where in the Caribbean the festival will be held, nor do they know who is performing.

Clearly they just want to be a part of history and only time will tell if it's a banger or another horrifying moment.

McFarland was taken to court over the first Fyre Festival, where he pleaded guilty to multiple counts of fraud.

He was sentenced to six-years inside and was released from prison last year, after which he issued a tearful apology.
