EE, the official communications and technology partner of Glastonbury Festival has released the official app to the festival and it’s a bit of a Glasto saviour. The free app allows users to wait for it… locate their tent or car by dropping a pin within the map, stay connected with friends thanks to Facebook integration; personalise their Festival line-up using the interactive scheduling tool, live stream BBC coverage of select stages and check the very latest news with live updates direct from the Festival. Apple Music integration also let users preview music from the line-up to help them decide who to see next.

Research from EE reveals that over 50 per cent of festival-goers admit to having lost their friends at a festival, with the average length of time without friends totalling a whooping three hours and 44 minutes. 16 per cent of festival fans even confessed to losing their friends for the entire length of the festival. Nightmare right? However, with the official Glastonbury Festival app users can share their location with friends by dropping a pin making it much easier to reunite. Over 40,000 pins were dropped using the app in 2016.

What To Wear To Glastonbury

‘Losing your friends is all part of the festival experience, that’s why we ensure Glastonbury-goers have access to the latest technology to ensure they can reunite with mates more easily,’ says Mat Sears, Director of Communications and Sponsorship at EE. ‘Our 4G network on site means our customers can stay connected for the entire festival and the app continues to be an essential digital guide for those both there and also for Glastonbury fans who couldn’t make it down. It was accessed four million times during the festival last year so we know that those on site rely on it to ensure they get the most out the UK’s biggest and best-loved festival.’

In addition to the app, EE are also providing free phone-charging for festival-goers – including Wireless and Quick Charge 3.0 charging stations to charge compatible phones in under 30 minutes – in the free Recharge tent located in the Glade area of the festival. They are also installing the first permanent network mast on the Glastonbury site to provide Worthy Farm with 4G coverage all year round, not just for festival-goers. Bring on the festival #selfies
