Suit also claims artists told not to fly to island long before attendees were.
The legal headaches for the organizers of the epic fail Fyre Festival keep piling up. The seventh known action against co-creators Ja Rule (born Jeffrey Atkins) and Billy McFarland was filed in Manhattan on Tuesday (May 9) by two disgruntled attendees, Sean Daly and Edward Ivey, who claim in their class-action lawsuit that the two engaged in breach of contract, negligent misrepresentation of claims, unjust enrichment and violation of New York state business law.
According to a copy of the suit obtained by Pitchfork, the suit claims that organizers kept offering VIP upgrades and encouraging attendees to put money on their cashless "Fyre Band" bracelets even after it was clear there would be no concert. It also alleges that they told artists -- which included Blink-182, Migos and Major Lazer -- that the festival had been canceled well before attendees were informed.
