Fyre Music Festival promoter has bail revoked

Bail was revoked on Monday for the promoter of a failed Fyre Music Festival in the Bahamas.
 
U.S. District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald said Billy McFarland was a serious flight risk and a non-violent danger to the community. 
 
He was re-arrested last week on new charges alleging that he tried to cheat some of the victims of his botched 2017 Fyre Festival by trying to sell them fake tickets to music, fashion and sporting events.
 
The Thursday sentencing hearing was postponed until July 26.
 
The new charges against 26 year old McFarland, accuse him of bilking 15 victims late last year of more than $100,000 by selling non-existent tickets to events including a Cleveland Cavaliers game that would include a team dinner with LeBron James.
