Remember the ill-fated Fyre Festival, which left many stranded in the Bahamas after shelling out big bucks for a luxury Festival, which was supposed to include a performance from Blink-182?

The promoter, Billy McFarland, is currently facing wire fraud charges, along with multiple civil cases, and has had turn over documents related to the Festival. And, while he did not properly budget for port-a-potties, he did spend $160,000 for a Yacht to transport Blink-182, as Travis doesn't fly.

Ironically, Blink ended up canceling their performance out of concern for the poor conditions provided by the promoter, who may face up to 10 years in prison. (via Page 6)
