Fyre Festival Founders Are Being Sued for $100 Million

The founders of the ill-fated Fyre Festival, Ja Rule and Billy McFarland, are being sued for a whopping $100 million in a potential class-action lawsuit from attendees of the failed event.

Ticketholders paid anywhere from $1,000 to $125,000 to attend the festival in the Bahamas, but when they arrived they found that the luxury accommodations they were promised looked more like a refugee camp. Headliners quickly started dropping out and the entire festival was canceled.

Celebrity lawyer Mark Geragos has filed a lawsuit on behalf of festival attendee Daniel Jung, who is asking for $5 million in damages “for alleged fraud, breach of contract, breach of covenant of good faith and negligent misrepresentation,” according to Variety.

It is anticipated that 150 plaintiffs will join the class and a minimum of $100 million is being sought.

Make sure to read the explanation of what went wrong with the festival.
