Billy McFarland is back with a new venture. Yes, you heard that right – the man behind the infamous Fyre Festival apparently isn’t done yet, as he has been teasing a new project on TikTok.

McFarland posted a teaser video on TikTok earlier this week explaining his plan to make up for his mistakes. While marking up a treasure map taped to a white board, he states: “I’m working on something new. This time, it’s a little crazier but a whole lot bigger than anything I’ve ever tried before. I promise I’m going to tell you everything in November, but before we get there, there’s one thing you need to know now: This time, everybody’s invited.’ He then rips off the treasure map to reveal a phone number.

If you texted the number, you received a message that said: ‘Welcome to the Treasure Hunt! Drop your contact info to come on board.’ After entering your contact info, you received the first video clue about McFarland’s new project on the horizon.

The TikTok has since been deleted,but many are left wondering what McFarland has in mind, and also how he thinks he can pull this off.
