Billy McFarland is now an author, wants to bring Fyre Festival back
Billy McFarland is apparently spending his time behind bars writing a book about the Fyre Festival experience from his perspective, reports NY Mag. It’s also reported by Josh Raab, a freelance editor who briefly worked with McFarland on the memoir, that the working title—believe it or not—is Prometheus: The God of Fyre. The purpose of the book is to rebut the Netflix and Hulu documentaries which “misrepresented the real events,” according to a letter written by McFarland’s girlfriend Anastasia Eremenko to Raab.
McFarland is spending his six-year sentence hand-writing 800 pages of material, spanning the full outlining of his pseudo-career, from his first investment all the way through the now-infamous Fyre Festival disaster.
Furthermore, it has been noted that the former CEO ad architect of the Fyre fiasco hopes this book will pave the road to a comeback story similar to Jordan Belfort’s who inspired The Wolf of Wall Street. He wrote to Raab, “The Festival will not be a one and done event — it’s happening again.”
