Fyre fraudster Billy McFarland was spotted back on the party scene in the Hamptons last weekend after his release from prison.
And he was even heard talking up a Fyre Festival II — a sequel to his legendarily disastrous 2017 non-music festival.
McFarland and event producer Andy King — for quipping in the Netflix doc “Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened” about being willing to perform oral sex to get water bottles through customs in the Bahamas for the ill-fated fest — were spotted at Montauk’s Dive Bar Pizza.
We hear there were a handful of people there, maybe 10 at most, who were with the convicted scammer to chat with him about his “Fyre II” plans.
“He was ultra-nice and polite,” said one sucker, er, source. “Like he was humbled by his experience in prison.”
McFarland was sentenced to in 2018 after pleading guilty to 2 counts of wire fraud and using fake documents to fool investors out of $26 million.
Following his initial arrest, he was busted for making $100,000 to coveted events like “Hamilton” and the Met Gala.
He was released to and got out September 2022.
McFarland announced his latest scheme, “Fyre II” this month on YouTube, saying tickets would sell for $499 for a December 2024 event.
McFarland claims all 100 tickets he put , but of course in the meantime, you can buy merch like a $200 hoodie or $140 sweatpants.
While the original Fyre fest had ticket holders arriving to FEMA tents without ever seeing a scheduled band play, McFarland promised a successful event in his announcement video for Fyre II — claiming he thought of the idea while in solitary confinement.
He also claims he is working on a Fyre Festival musical for Broadway.
Kendall Jenner, who was just one of the A-list names to help promote the original failed fest, brought against her in the US Bankruptcy Court in New York by Gregory Messer, $90,000.
