Recently, Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival announced that information about users registered on its website (a process required to purchase tickets for the festival) had been compromised. Festival producer Goldenvoice has now addressed the hack, writing, “the intruder may have accessed” personal information, and also affirmed, “there is no indication that customer payment or financial information, or passwords were accessed.” Goldenvoice is also offering a year of complimentary identity theft protection services to those “potentially affected customers who had a driver’s license or other form of ID in the database.” The statement closes, “Goldenvoice and The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival remain committed to maintaining the privacy and security of their customers’ personal information.”
