The Fyre Festival was one of the biggest music industry scams, and the hoax celebration is back in the spotlight again, thanks to new documentaries on Hulu and Netflix.

Maryann Rolle, one of the people featured in Netflix's Fyre documentary, claims she lost $50,000 of her own savings to pay her restaurant staff and prepare more than 1,000 meals per day.

"I had 10 persons working for me just preparing food all day and all night, 24 hours," Rolle said in the documentary. "I literally had to pay all those people… I went through about $50,000 of my savings that I could've had for a rainy day. They just wiped it out and never looked back."


"I was left in a big hole! My life was changed forever, and my credit was ruined by Fyre Fest."

Over the past 16 days, Rolle's GoFundMe campaign has raised nearly $210,000.

Rolle's daughter-in-law posted a photo of her father with Rolle holding a sign that read, "Thank-You Go Fund Me".

"Maryann and her husband Elvis are overjoyed and so utterly grateful to be recognized and honored in this big, big way!! God bless you all LOVE WINS when awesome humans unite," she wrote.
