McFarland is reportedly now facing a new set of charges connected to a post-Fyre Festival ticket scam.
MacFarland was charged Tuesday in NY with one count of wire fraud and one count of money laundering.
Authorities say McFarland was conducting the scheme even after he pleaded guilty to wire fraud and misleading Fyre Media's investors. McFarland ran the company NYC VIP Access, which advertised tickets to events such as the Met Gala, Burning Man, Coachella, the 2018 Grammy Awards and Super Bowl LII, despite not actually having any tickets to the events, according to the complaint unsealed Tuesday. And he'd told his workers that he would flee if he is sentenced to more than three years in prison next week, she said.
Prosecutors said more than 15 victims had been bilked since late previous year of more than $100,000 as McFarland and his workers sold non-existent tickets to the 2018 Met Gala, Burning Man 2018, Coachella 2018, the 2018 Grammy Awards, Super Bowl LII and a Cleveland Cavaliers game that would include a team dinner with Lebron James.

Walking Dead producer Gale Anne Hurd , who was also attached to the 2005 film, will produce the Aeon Flux reboot as well. The film grossed $52.3 million globally, falling short of its $62 million production budget.
The head of New York's FBI Office, William F. Sweeney Jr. says that McFarland didn't stop committing fraud crimes after he plead guilty for the Fyre Festival incident. 15 people allegedly bought tickets from the company, totaling $100,000.
According to the filing, McFarland tried to cover up his involvement in NYC VIP Access by using a then-employee's email account instead of his own, according to the filing.
McFarland allegedly began running the ticket scheme in late 2017 - just months after his June 2017 arrest for defrauding Fyre Media investors out of $24 million. Each count faces up to 20 years in jail.
