Tomorrowland is usually more closely associated with positive news, having maintained its position as one of the most popular festivals in the electronic music industry. Now, however, its attendees have been subject to an online hack in which data was stolen. The hack effected 64,000 attendees from the 2014 edition of the festival, and data was stolen through the Paylogic ticketing system.
A spokesperson Debby Wilmsen told De Standaard:
“The managers of the Paylogic ticketing system noticed some unusual activity on an older system. After careful analysis it appeared that an old database from Tomorrowland 2014 was concerned. The server in question was immediately taken offline. We ask to be vigilant when receiving e-mails about ticket sales, promotions or other addressees that do not come from official Paylogic or Tomorrowland communication channels. All communication from Tomorrowland is led by tomorrowland.com. Links to Tomorrowland ticket sales can only be found via my.tomorrowland.com or official travel partners.”
Those affected have been contacted by Tomorrowland via Email. The hack comes ahead of Tomorrowland’s first ever Winter edition which is due to take place in 2019. Check out the latest teaser below.
