Also mentioned in the lawsuits is festival director Yaron Lavi, who is being asked to repay the $ 315,000 he received.
Additional lawsuits were alleged against suppliers involved in the festival, including a hunting company, a ticket sales company and a catering company.
The lawsuits claim that the money transferred to the music acts and celebrities must be returned because the funds were all part of the plan of Fyre Festival organizer Billy McFarland to cheat festival investors.
McFarland pleaded guilty of fraud and currently has six years in prison. He has also been ordered by the court to repay more than $ 26 million.

Models Ratajkowski and Jenner were also accused in the lawsuits of a & # 39; clear lack of good faith & # 39; in the festival because they had not shown that they were reimbursed for their Instagram posts and they also neglected to inform & # 39; their fans and followers that they finally decided not to attend the festival due to problems with the festival of which they and their desks were uniquely aware. & # 39;
Blink-182 withdrew from the Fyre festival shortly before it started and claimed that the band was concerned about the ability of festival organizers to meet their production needs, according to NME.
However, by the time the band tweeted that it had pulled out of appearance, many fans had already arrived on the island.
The curator is also looking for a return of $ 14.4 million that was transferred from the festival company to parent company, Fyre Media. According to the lawsuit, $ 11 million of that amount was transferred to McFarland, who reportedly spent more than $ 315,600 on personal expenses, such as luxury penthouse hotel bills, restaurants, entertainment, and clothing.
The Fyre festival was promoted by McFarland and rapper Ja Rule, but went horribly wrong because the island itself did not have the infrastructure to support the party goers, who were stranded nowhere to sleep and had hardly anything to eat.
It was the subject of two documentaries about Hulu and Netflix, which premiered in January 2019.
