Gregory Messer, the trustee overseeing the $26 million bankruptcy of Billy McFarland's Fyre Media, has announced a new round of settlements with artists who had been scheduled to perform at the disastrous 2017 festival, collecting $360,000 of the $2.8 million paid to artists including Major Lazer, Blink-182, Tyga and Pusha T.
Paradigm artists, including Major Lazer and Disclosure, received $1.5 million from Fyre Festival and returned $225,000. Creative Artist Agency received $585,000 from Fyre Festival, $500,000 of which was paid to Blink-182, and returned $135,000 total. Of the $730,000 paid to Nue Agency, $100,000 was returned, including $50,000 from Pusha T, $25,000 from Desiigner and $20,000 from Tyga. Desiigner and Tyga set up a monthly payment plan to return their share of the money by the end of January.
