Anticipation levels we’re running excessively high this morning for the sale of Splendour in the Grass 2014 tickets through the Moshtix website. People from all over Australia we’re signed in with index finger ready for clicking at 9am in the hope of getting their hands on these hot tickets.
The only problem?
It seems Moshtix was hacked by a yet unknown source overcharging fans in excess of $1,000! Sources say the glitch was offering 50% discounted tickets as an incentive to con buyers into thinking they had struck it lucky.
Facebook has been lit-up with complaints, comments and suggestions around the matter with Moshtix offering the following response:
“During today’s Splendour in The Grass on-sale, due to technical issues some customers were erroneously offered reduced priced tickets and charged incorrect credit card fees.
All of these affected orders will be cancelled today, and customers contacted to allow them to purchase at the correct prices. This was an isolated technical issue that did not affect other ticket buyers and tickets are continuing to sell fast for the festival.
Anyone that is concerned they have been charged the incorrect amounts should contact moshtix at ticketsupport.moshtix.com.au.”
Moshtix have also mentioned no credit card details were obtained in the security breach and so until you hear otherwise, those lucky enough to get their hands on tickets can rest easy.
If you missed out on tickets, here’s why Splendour sold out so quickly
