From The Austin Monitor:

C3 Presents, the Austin-based music promotions firm behind such festivals as Austin City Limits and Lollapalooza, has apparently suffered a security breach. The details were cited in a letter sent to potential victims of the violation, including an Austin Monitor reporter.

The document states that "on current information and belief, no festival or concert customer information was exposed."

However, the letter adds that "an unknown unauthorized person gained access" to one of C3's servers after "its theft ... on Friday, June 20, 2014."

In Austin, many see live music not just as an opportunity, but as a way of life.

Every day brings the possibility to see a variety of talents – both from music’s biggest and brightest, to up-and-coming acts in Austin’s live music scene.

For many outside Central Texas, Austin’s “Live Music Capital of the World” status is summed up by two of the city’s biggest music festivals: South by Southwest and the Austin City Limits Music Festival. The latter, now in its 13th year, carries the brand of the historic Austin City Limits television show, which has a rich and storied history all its own.

The official release is Wednesday morning when weekend passes go on sale, but the full music lineup was revealed Tuesday night at a Fun Fun Fun Fest sponsored screening of the documentary, Vannin’, in Austin.

No more leaks: the full Austin City Limits Music Festival lineup is out. 

Sure, British rock band Muse had accidentally confirmed their performance during an interview with a Montreal radio station. Over the weekend other band names like Portugal. The Man, Neko Case and D’Angelo appeared on beer coozies and Topo Chico bottle caps around town. And last week cheeky ads were placed in the Austin Chronicle (“For a little Fun. Call 555-ACL-FEST”).  But just after midnight this morning, the full lineup was finally unveiled.
