Fyre Founder Billy McFarland Faces Two New Criminal Charges

Fyre Festival founder Billy McFarland, who pleaded guilty to criminal charges after the implosion of his luxury music festival in 2017, faces new charges on Tuesday, Mic reports. McFarland is now accused of committing wire fraud and money laundering.

Documents filed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District Court of New York alleged that McFarland “engaged in a sham ticket-selling business for exclusive events through a company controlled and operated by McFarland (‘NYC VIP Access’).” In addition, FBI said that McFarland “perpetrated a scheme to defraud attendees of the Fyre Festival and others by soliciting them to purchase tickets from NYC VIP Access to exclusive events when, in fact, no such tickets existed.”

Initial attempts to reach McFarland for comment were unsuccessful.

This is a new blow to McFarland. After the Fyre Festival, which he co-founded, collapsed last year in spectacular fashion – many attendees were stranded in the Bahamas, and musicians quickly canceled their appearances – McFarland was named in multiple class-action lawsuits. He is currently awaiting sentencing: In March, he pleaded guilty to both misleading investors and committing wire fraud. 

Each of McFarland’s two wire fraud charges carry a maximum prison sentence of 20 years, though prosecutors and the disgraced entrepreneur’s lawyers reportedly reached an agreement for him to serve a 97-to-120 month term. McFarland’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for June 21st.

The documents filed by the FBI on Tuesday ask the court to issue a new arrest warrant for McFarland. The FBI alleges that McFarland scammed consumers who were hoping to obtain tickets to high profile events like the Grammys, the Met Gala and even Burning Man.

Watch Eight-Year-Old Drummer's Amazing Led Zeppelin Cover

John Bonham’s drum part in Led Zeppelin‘s “Good Times Bad Times” is one of classic rock’s most legendary grooves. And, thanks to the skipping kick-drum part in the verse, one of the trickiest to pull off. That’s just one reason we’re so impressed with the above video of eight-year-old drummer Yoyoka Soma. 

The young Japanese prodigy has been at it since age two, and now plays in a family band. She effortlessly nails the entire Zeppelin song (watch her foot at the 25-second mark), complete with stylish cowbell flair. 

The Internet is teeming with cover videos, many of them by kids like Soma. But there’s something special about this one, which was originally a submission to the Hit Like a Girl drumming contest. It’s not just the accuracy of the performance; it’s her loping, laid-back approach, which is not only Bonham’s greatest contribution to rock percussion – it’s the hardest part of his style to imitate. 

And then there’s the glee. Watching Soma whip around the kit during the chorus, you can feel the joy and abandon pouring out of her. This goes beyond “cute kid playing drums” and touches on something surprisingly transcendent.
