Fyre Festival attendees looking at $7,220 payout each in class-action settlement

Ticket holders in a class-action lawsuit over the nightmare experience that was the Fyre Festival have potentially reached a settlement. Four years after what was touted as the “cultural experience of the decade” stranded attendees on the Bahamian island of Exuma, a settlement with claimant ticket holders was reached, according to court documents obtained by Yahoo Entertainment. The 277 ticket holder class members — for the music fest organized by Billy McFarland, CEO of Fyre Media, and rapper Ja Rule — could potentially receive a total of $2 million, or $7,220 each.
