Coachella Website Hacked – Goldenvoice Issues Warning to Account Holders

If you have an account on the website, take heed:  Goldenvoice sent out a message this week that said there was a potentially large data breach.

The concert promoters recently discovered that hackers gained access to personal information on the site. However, Goldenvoice stressed that no user passwords were stolen in the security breach.

In addition, all unauthorized 3rd parties have been blocked from access to the site.

According to Billboard Magazine, concert promoter Goldenvoice informed users in an email Tuesday that there was a data breach in which names, email addresses, phone numbers and birth dates may have been stolen by hackers.

In the message, account holders were told to “be aware that you may be targeted by phishing emails sent from people impersonating Coachella personnel.  Please remember that Coachella will never solicit personal information or account information from you via email.  Please exercise caution if you receive any emails of phone calls that ask for such information, or direct you to web sites where you are asked for personal or financial information.”

Coachella runs for two weekends, April 14th – 16th and April 21st – 23rd at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio.
