Fyre Festival II tickets are on sale for those who want to give one of the biggest music festival failures in history another chance.

Billy McFarland, the convicted fraudster behind the failed event, made the announcement Sunday in a YouTube video. 

"This is a big day," he said. ""It has been the absolute wildest journey to get here, and it really all started during a seventh-month stint in solitary confinement."

"I wrote out this 50-page plan of how it would take this overall interest and demand in Fyre and how it would take my ability bring people from around the world together to make the impossible happen," he continued. 

McFarland said the redo will be held in the Carribean sometime towards the end of next year, but he did not give an exact date. He said there will be pop-up events leading to the big festival. 

The original Fyre Festival is considered one of the biggest entertainment failures – a music festival that never was after being plagued with mishaps and landed McFarland behind bars.

McFarland first hinted at a Fyre Festival II in April on social media. 

In 2018, McFarland was sentenced to a six-year prison term in federal court in Manhattan.

Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald called him a "serial fraudster."

McFarland admitted to defrauding investors of $26 million in the 2017 music festival and over $100,000 in a fraudulent ticket-selling scheme after his arrest in the festival scam.

McFarland partnered with rapper Ja Rule to promote the event. However, Ja Rule didn't face any charges related to the festival and issued an apology on Twitter in 2017.

The festival was anything but the ultra-luxurious event promoted as "the cultural experience of the decade" and touted on social media by Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski and other models and celebrities.

Customers who paid $1,200 to over $100,000 hoping to see Blink-182 and the hip-hop act Migos arrived to learn musical acts were canceled. Their luxury accommodations and gourmet food consisted of leaky white tents and packaged food, prompting attendees to lash out on social media with the hashtag #fyrefraud.

In court, McFarland’s attorney even argued that mental illness caused the promoter of a failed music festival to rip off investors and commit other crimes.

Last year, McFarland appeared on "Good Morning America" to issue an apology.

"I need to apologize. And that is the first and the last thing that needs to be done," he said on the show. "I let people down. I let down employees. I let down their families. I let down investors. So, I need to apologize. I'm wrong, and it's bad."

"I messed up. And I was so driven by this desperate desire to prove people right … I think I was just so insecure that I thought the only way to prove myself to them was to succeed. That led me down just this terrible path of bad decisions."
