In an era defined by fraught geopolitical tensions, precipitous climate change, and a general panic and uncertainty, there seems to be one thread left to connect the entire human race: being completely obsessed with Fyre Festival.
The failed luxury music fest/worldwide fascination/scam is back in the news yet again. The Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office will be selling off some leftover Fyre Fest merch in an online auction. Apparently, this is something that people want.
This exclusive one-time limited-edition drop will include t-shirts, sweatpants, hats, wristbands and more. Proceeds from the items’ sales are set to go to the thousands of people scammed into buying a ticket to Fyre Fest all the way back in 2017.

The festival currently owes more than $26 million in legal damages, so don’t expect the items to be cheap either.
“We know that there is tremendous interest in these items in the NY metro area in particular.” a spokesperson from the U.S. Marshals Service said in an interview with Vulture.
So, if you’re itching to prove that you’re the Billy McFarland or Ja Rule of your friend group, keep your eyes peeled. Details for the auction are TBA.
And while we’re taking a walk down Fyre memory lane, never forget:
