Up to one million people could've had data stolen after the Coachella user database was hacked.

This affects anyone who is attending this year's festival, but also people who've registered with the website over the past number of years.

The company behind Coachella, AEG confirmed the news last night in a statement, which said "We recently discovered that unauthorized third parties illegally gained access to the usernames, first and last names, shipping addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and dates of birth individuals provided to Coachella”.

Meanwhile users were informed of the hack in an email which said 'We have confirmed that no user passwords were stolen.

Based on our investigation, no financial information was accessed and, there is no indication that customer financial information has been disclosed. 

We have taken measures to block further unauthorized access, and reported the matter to the appropriate authorities for further investigation.'

Meanwhile, a replacement for Beyoncé at the festival has been confirmed, check out who it is here.
