Hackers obtain information of 64,000 after Tomorrowland data breachTomorrowland 4

A recent breach of Tomorrowland‘s attendee database exposed data on 64,000 ticket holders from the Boom, Belgium-based event’s 2014 iteration. As a Tomorrowland spokesperson conveyed to Flemish news source, De Standaard, Tomorrowland’s ticketer, Paylogic, contacted festival organizers when the 2014 system displayed unprovoked “unusual activity.” Paylogic promptly disconnected the database and reported the incident, while Tomorrowland reached out to those whose information was compromised via email.

Hackers are reportedly likely to have gathered the names, ages, postal codes, genders, and email addresses of the 64,000 in Tomorrowland’s 2014 database, but did not obtain personal payment information, passwords, or physical addresses. Only Tomorrowland’s 2014 goers were affected by the breach. Tomorrowland personnel ask those who did receive an email notification of data disclosure to be wary of potential and ensuing phishing attacks, and to ensure that all electronic correspondence comes from Tomorrowland.com.

Tomorrowland denies access to 38 ticket holders deemed security threats

This post was originally published on this site

Tomorrowland has taken a step in festival security that no other multi-day festival has before.

Organizers of the Boom, Belgium-based event are on the defensive this year for the festival’s twelfth iteration, with the threat of terrorism especially emphasized after the suicide bombing attack on Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman tour in Manchester. The evacuation of Nuremburg’s Rock am Ring in June after the receipt of a credible terror threat provided further cause for caution. Federal police in Belgium have acknowledged Tomorrowland’s screening of each and every ticket holder this year. 400,000 tickets were sold for the festival’s 2017 edition.

Belgian police officials evaluated ticket holders on what has since said to have been strict “criteria” by various Belgian media sources. While the details of that criteria have not been released in order to ensure the utmost level of effectiveness in the evaluation process, it is known that those barred entry to the festival were not rejected on the grounds of prior drug offenses. Thirty-eight ticket holders were refused access to the festival once the comprehensive screening was completed, the examination focusing on ticket holders’ respective potential for radical behavior. All staff members were screened along with ticket holders.

The mayors of Boom and Rumst lent Tomorrowland permission to screen the thousands of ticket holders. Due to a Tomorrowland ticket’s link to one’s full legal name and country of origin, the process was expedited and the information sought immediately obtained.

Tomorrowland unveils their new theme for 2017

This post was originally published on this site

Following up their “Elixir of Life” theme in 2016, Tomorrowland has dubbed their 2017 theme as “the most magical gathering on earth…. Amicorum Spectaculum.” To provide context, “Amicorum” is Latin from the root word “Amicus” which simply means “friend” while “Spectaculum” is rather self explanatory. Given the festival’s esteemed reputation, Amirocum Spectaculum is intended to be a spectacle spent with friends, acquaintances, and even strangers who may eventually become much more.

Tomorrowland’s official announcement on Facebook contains images of palm readers, hot-air balloons, and Ferris wheels in a blue & cream color scheme, suggesting at a classic carnival aesthetic. As the Belgian mega-festival continues to push the innovative boundaries of live entertainment, there is a lot to be excited about as further announcements loom in the near future.

In the past few years, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have evolved from hometown heroes in Belgium to bonafide superstars. In 2015, for instance, they took the number 1 spot in DJ Mag’s annual Top 100 DJs poll. Using their newfound stardom, the EDM dynamic duo proceeded to cement their popular standing in the mass music market through pairing with Ne-Yo to create “Higher Place,” which topped Billboard Dance charts. All the while, they’ve been returning to their roots on the DJ front, impressing fans at their homebase of Tomorrowland with an all-vinyl set.

In addition to their musical accomplishments, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike also held a notable residency at Ibiza’s Amnesia club throughout the 2016, drawing thousands to view their onstage antics and raucous tunes under their “House of Madness” concept. They recently brought their show home to Antwerp for an end-of-year blowout.

The video above shows the full 2.5 hours of action where they proceeded to stun their crowd with their high-energy curation synced with larger-than-life stage production .
