Fyre Festival Attendees Receive Settlement in Class Action Lawsuit


The people who attended Fyre Festival in 2017 are now getting money as part of a class action lawsuit:

A $2 million class-action settlement was reached Tuesday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District of New York between the festival's organizers and 277 ticket holders, according to documents obtained by PEOPLE.

The final amount is still subject to the court's approval, though as it currently stands, each ticket holder would receive about $7,200.

Ben Meiselas, the lead lawyer representing the ticket holders and a partner at Geragos & Geragos, said in a statement to PEOPLE that he was glad to see "justice" served.

"Billy [McFarland] went to jail, ticket holders can get some money back, and some great documentaries were made," he wrote. "Now that's what I call justice."
