Celebrity lawyer Mark Geragos filed the lawsuit in May 2017, saying:
“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 — that was closer to The Hunger Games or Lord of the Flies than Coachella.”
Just two days later, another class action lawsuit was filed against Fyre Festival co-founder Billy McFarland.
Music fans who paid for the infamous Fyre Festival expecting an ultraluxurious Bahamian getaway only to be left stranded on a dark beach will get approximately $7,220 each. A class-action lawsuit by ticket holders was settled Tuesday in bankruptcy court. https://t.co/UY4yvCmAIk
