Billy McFarland Charged for Coachella & Super Bowl Scam While Awaiting Sentencing for Fyre Festival

McFarland used a spreadsheet identifying the Fyre Festival attendees with the highest salaries, the feds said.

NYC VIP Access was purporting to sell tickets to major events such as the Grammys, the Met Gala, Coachella, and the Super Bowl.

McFarland pleaded guilty to wire fraud charges in March in a deal that called for him to serve between eight and 10 years in prison, although he has requested leniency with no incarceration.

Billy McFarland was rearrested Tuesday and charged with earning $100,000 by selling fake tickets to exclusive fashion, music and sporting events through NYC VIP Access, a company he controlled.

He says the 26-year-old McFarland went on to sell fraudulent tickets totaling nearly $100,000 to various events.

Fyre Festival founder Billy McFarland was charged with a whole slew of new crimes he allegedly carried out while awaiting sentencing for his Fyre Festival-related charges.

McFarland has been charged with one count of wire fraud and one count of money laundering.

The festival was anything but the ultra-luxurious event promoted as "the cultural experience of the decade" and touted on social media by Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski and other models and celebrities. Each charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

Manhattan federal prosecutors say McFarland, 26, began running the ticket scheme in late 2017 - just months after his June 2017 arrest for defrauding investors of his Fyre Media company out of $24 million.
