Ticketfly has been hacked, and the San Francisco-based ticketing company temporarily taken offline in what has been described as a “cyber incident”.

Various attempts to access the web site resulted in this message – “All Ticketfly and related systems are temporarily offline. Please check back for updates”.

A Ticketfly spokesman has confirmed the site is currently suffering technical issues.

“Following a series of recent issues with Ticketfly properties, we have determined that Ticketfly.com has been the target of a cyber incident,” he says. “Out of an abundance of caution, we have taken all Ticketfly systems temporarily offline as we continue to look into the issue. We realise the gravity of this decision, but the security of client and customer data is our top priority. We are working tirelessly to get our clients back up and running.”

Eventbrite purchased Ticketfly from Pandora for $200 million in September 2017.
