Fyre Festival founder writing a book from prison, planning another festival

News 06/05/2019

Fyre Festival founder Billy McFarland has found a great way to keep himself entertained while serving his six-year prison sentence.

NY Mag has reported that the 27-year-old is writing a book about the Fyre Festival experience. It has also been reported by freelance editor Josh Raab - who briefly worked with McFarland on the book -that the working title is Prometheus: The God of Fyre.

The book aims to combat the alleged misrepresentation the Netflix and Hulu documentaries portray, according to a letter written by McFarland’s girlfriend Anastasia Eremenko sent to Raab.

McFarland is working on 800 pages of hand-written material outlining his career from his first investment through to Fyre Festival.

McFarland reportedly hopes the book will eventually spark a comeback. 

He wrote to Raab, “The Festival will not be a one and done event — it’s happening again.”

Only time will tell if McFarland's comeback eventuates. Regardless, it's safe to say it won't be for a few years at least.
