As our valued customer this notification is being sent to inform you of and protect you from a reported phishing website.
We have been made aware of a phishing website targeting Front Gate ticket buyers of Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. To be clear, the Front Gate website has not been hacked. The phishing involved a fraudulent website designed to look like the login page for Coachella ticket buyers to access their Front Gate accounts, built in an attempt to capture username and password information. Links to this website have been circulated on message boards, sent via phishing email campaigns to recipients that published their email address publicly on message boards, and potentially sent throughout the web. We believe this fraudulent website was operational from January 25, 2014, through February 26, 2014. If you provided your user ID and login information on the fraudulent website, or are unsure if you did, please access your Front Gate account at the Weekend 1 and/or Weekend 2 login websites, change your password immediately and check to see if any of your account information has been changed.
If you did respond to the phishing link and volunteered your account credentials by attempting to login to a fraudulent site, data within your Front Gate account used to purchase Coachella tickets may have been accessed and/or adjusted. We want to emphasize that your credit card information (other than the last 4 digits and expiration date) was not exposed. The only account information that could have been exposed was your name, mailing address, user ID, email address, password, and the last four digits of your credit card number and expiration date.
If the Front Gate username and/or password that you used to purchase Coachella tickets are the same login credentials that you use to access other websites, such as bank accounts, online retailers, and social media profiles, etc., as a precautionary measure, we suggest that you promptly change those account login details as well. At this time, we do not believe that coachella.com accounts have been compromised, only the Front Gate account used to purchase tickets.
Please be cautious and do not access any sites that are not associated with coachella.com or frontgatetickets.com .
If you have not changed your password and are unable to access your account, please contact us.
We are working with our security vendors and fraud prevention team to identify the source of the phishing website. The website is no longer operational. We have contacted the necessary law enforcement agencies. Protecting ticket buyers and their data from malicious activity has been, and always will be, a top priority for Front Gate Tickets.
Thank you for your patronage. If you have further questions, please contact us.
TL;DR someone may have scammed your account with an email asking you for your login and password. Please click this link and enter your login and password.
I've rented off craigslist before, it was fine. It is annoying when there are loads of places that seem too good to be true, then you email them and they want you to mail a cheque to them in Korea or whatever and they will mail me the keys. I pretty much ignore anything that seems awesome now, which is sucks because there's an off chance some of them might be real.
My person is getting something thrown together I think. I started it super early, felt like it was a good start then basically just put it on my 'to do' list, which is code for 'shit I should do, but will put off until it really needs to be done'.
Tomorrow will be the day of work, hopefully it turns out at least somewhat coherent...
We were torn on where to stay and actually found Yurts at Eagle Vista campground, next to the festival. They have 2 versions, a hotel-like one on their site, which Brand Live take every year, and a few tent only ones, hard sides and a dome top, 16 feet across with a patio. They are reasonably priced too, might be worth checking out if you decide to go.
We ended up going with the vip camping anyways as we wanted to be in the festival grounds and we spend most of the time lounging around the camp site.
I asked them who would be feeding me the grapes and was told that position has yet to be filled.
Wasn't a problem at all man, it was good to meet ya.
I'll be doing VIP camping as well (basically against my will, last time I ever make a promise without seeing the lineup first) so we'll probably see you again this year given how small the area should be, I heard there was only 50 spots sold.
That option you listed sounds pretty awesome though, I'll have to give it some thought in future years, though there's a good chance I may be done with this festival in the future.
