It’s a Fyre sale.
As Billy McFarland sits in prison, some of the money he owes to victims of his scam will be paid back through a sale of merch left over from his failed festival.
Vulture has confirmed that the US Marshals’ New York office will be selling two boxes of swag.
Officials told the site, “We have an assortment of the ‘real thing’ Fyre Festival-branded T-shirts, sweatpants, sweatshirts, hats, wristbands and medallions.”
The box was turned over by McFarland’s attorney, with the money from the sale going back to victims.
“Our objective always is to get the funds back to the victims as fast as we can,” the Marshals’ office said.
While there is plenty of counterfeit merch on eBay, there are listings for “authentic” items going for around $60.
The priciest item is a cut Fyre Fest wristband, with bids starting at $1,000.
A hat is going for $600.
Meanwhile, you can get a new shirt featuring Andy King — who said in the Netflix doc “Fyre” that he was “fully prepared” to have oral sex with a customs agent to get water for concertgoers.
