American rapper Ja Rule, whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins, and his business partner Billy McFarland, are being sued for fraud, negligent representation and breach of contract.
They have apologised and offered refunds to all the festival-goers.
Attendee Daniel Jung, who has enlisted the services of celebrity trial lawyer Mark Geragos, is accusing the pair of "an outrageous failure to prepare".
"The festival s lack of adequate food, water, shelter, and medical care created a dangerous and panicked situation among attendees - suddenly finding themselves stranded on a remote island without basic provisions - that was closer to The Hunger Games or Lord of the Flies than Coachella," the court filing said.
