Infamous Fyre Festival organizer Billy McFarland was spotted at Donald Trump’s boisterous rally in the Bronx on Thursday — and we hear he brought along the controversial rap duo who spoke at the event.

McFarland was seen at the Bronx rally walking through the crowd with the Brooklyn rappers Sheff G and Sleepy Hallow.

Sheff G has 1.1 million followers on Instagram while Sleepy Hallow has just under a million. Their appearance at the rally got widely picked up on hip-hop websites and social media feeds.

The rappers also took the stage and spoke at the Trump rally, where thousands of the former president’s hardcore fans flooded Crotona Park in the South Bronx.

Sheff G told the crowd, “They’re always gonna whisper your accomplishments and shout your failures. Trump will shout the wins for all of us.” Sleepy Hallow chimed in, “Make America great again!”

McFarland was released from prison in 2022 after serving four years for defrauding investors of $27.4 million, after the Fyre Festival went up in flames.

Last summer, McFarland launched a much smaller-scale “Fyre Festival 2” by taking a group of around 75 ticket-buyers for his do-over event to an airfield in upstate New York, and sending them up in private planes to experience weightlessness.

A year ago, the rappers were named in a 140-count indictment, The Post previously reported, along with more than two dozen alleged gang members.

The charges in the indictment of the group overall included second-degree murder, attempted murder, conspiracy, weapons possessions, assault, attempted assault, kidnapping, gang assault and related raps, according to the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office, The Post reported.

Sheff G pleaded not guilty, and Sleepy Hallow said via Instagram, “DON’T BELIEVE THE INTERNET WE INNOCENT,” according to music site Pitchfork.

Sheff G also previously served time on weapons possession charges, reports said.
