Billy McFarland Claims He Found Financial Backers For Fyre Fest 2.0 and A Broadway Musical
Elevator pitch bro turned con artist Billy McFarland was released from prison about a year ago after serving time for wire fraud and defrauding his investors in the pursuit of organizing his failed luxury music festival, Fyre Fest. After getting slapped with a $26 million restitution bill and serving four years behind bars- he’s had a lot of time to think about what he’s done. And Billy’s sooooo sowwy about it all that he’s back to do it again. Last month, Billy announced that he plans to do Fyre Fest 2.0, and the collective response was basically, “Yeah, okay bud, good luck with that.” But this week, Billy came back to TikTok to say he’s in talks with financial backers to make it happen. Either those investors are looking for new ways to waste money, or those investors are about as real as a well-cooked gourmet meal at Fyre Fest.
Revolve Responds To Influencers Comparing Their Invite-Only Event At This Year’s Coachella To Fyre Festival
Coachella happened this past weekend, and based on the footage I’ve seen, I’d rather spend the weekend doing my taxes (which I did). Hanging out in the hot desert with hordes of boring narcissists glued to their phones? Plus you have to use port-a-potties? No thank you please! And, as NBC News reports, there was the drama at Revolve Festival…
Snoop Dogg Says The “Lovers & Friends” Festival Is Totally Legit
Vulture says there’s a new music festival on the horizon and it’s a hip-hop and R&B festival and it might be a dud. The full line-up of the Lovers & Friends music festival was announced, and some performers have confirmed that they’re performing, while others are wondering why the fuck everyone keeps asking them about it. But fear not! Snoop Dogg is here to tell you it’s legit! So don’t worry! It’s not like Fyre Festival had any big names supporting it, right?
Kanye West Continues The Grift With His $55 Sunday Service “Brunch”
Kanye West has really been grifting the people of America and the world with his unbelievably shitty merchandise. Of varying kinds. His clothes are insanely bad both in design and price. His Sunday Service merchandise is so overpriced that even Goop is like: “Really, bitch? $50 for socks and they don’t even claim to clear your chakras? Sort of a rip off…” And he made his fans wait like a year for an album that was shorter than your workout. I mean, the man is consistently under-delivering and over-charging. It’s the only thing Kris Jenner likes about his alienating personality right now. Well he continues to rake in the big bucks for the Kardashian Koven and now he’s charged people $55 to eat a measly “brunch“. Oh but this time there’s an excuse. It’s the caterer’s fault.
If Woodstock 50 Ends Up Happening, It Will Be Free
Woodstock 50 has had A LOT of bad things come it’s way: it lost a venue, gained a venue and then lost that venue, it had some investors allegedly stealing money, etclll. As a result of this cursed mess, Jay-Z, Dead & Company, and John Forgerty dropped out (Miley Cyrus is still on board, as far we know). Well, turns out the shit show must go on and/or Woodstock 50 still hasn’t realized it’s dead yet. Because it’s soldiering on and putting on a free show at its new venue of the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland. Get those Fyre Festival cheese sandwiches warmed up cause things are about to get disappointing!
