It seems that the Glastonbury Festival, the fest that likes to think it’s the first and last word in peace, love and harmony, has been caught up in the middle of some dodgy spam shenanigans.

According to The Registar, people who didn’t get a ticket for this year’s festival subsequently received pleas to buy tickets for the Latitude festival after their email addresses were shared with Latitude promoters, the Mean Fiddler.

After a wave of complaints were made about this blatant abuse of personal data, an apology was issued by the Glastonbury organisers. However, interestingly over on the Glastonbury website, organiser Michael Eavis is still to be found suggesting Latitude as an “alternative”.
