Fyre Festival founder launches virtual music festival costing $250 per ticket

Fyre festival creator Billy McFarland has revealed he has a new festival in the works - to help pay off his debts from the last disaster.

However, this festival, called PYRT (pronounced pirate) will be virtual, and set you back $250 (£206).

McFarland was sentenced to six years in prison for fraud.
