The Fyre Festival saga that began in 2017 has is nearing its conclusion, with a $2 million class action settlement entitling all attendees to a payment of $7,200 each. Though lawyers have reportedly secured the settlement, it will not be made official until a vote can be held on May 13.
Lawyer Mark Geragos spoke about the Fyre Festival experience, stating,
“The festival’s lack of adequate food, water, shelter, and medical care created a dangerous and panicked situation among attendees suddenly finding themselves stranded on a remote island without basic provisions.”
As the lawsuit reaches its close, McFarland is still serving his sentence in prison, where he was recently moved to solitary confinement as a result of recording a prison podcast. Partner Ja Rule, who has been cleared in the Fyre Festival lawsuit, recently auctioned off a Fyre-themed NFT for $122,000.
