While everyone worrying about hackers, another major breach was experienced by Tomorrowland.
The ticket distribution system of Tomorrowland was hacked and they took data of over 60,000 people that attended the festival in 2014.
Tomorrowland is keen to stress that no sensitive information such as passwords, addresses or bank account numbers have been leaked. However, the names, email addresses, the ages and the postcodes of those that bought tickets for the festival 4 years ago have been leaked.
“The managers of the Paylogic ticketing system noticed some unusual activity on an older system,” spokesperson Debby Wilmsen told De Standaard. “After careful analysis it appeared that an old database from Tomorrowland 2014 was concerned. The server in question was immediately taken offline.”
The festival organisers has send the 64,000 people affected an email warning them to be wary if they receive emails about ticket sales or special offers that haven’t come from official channels such as Tomorrowland or Paylogic.
