Internet connection at festivals is a pain! Glastonbury Festival is notorious for no wifi…until now. Introducing the Glastonbury Wifi Tractor #4GEE
Check out the lastest music act playing now, snapchat some crazy festival photos and make your friends jealous of with your social updates. All these things are possible at Glastonbury now with the cool wifi Tractor hitting the sacred muddy fields of Glasto. The #4GEE Tractor is the new saviour for festival goers!
Glastonbury Organiser Michael Eavis has found a unique way of ensuring revellers can keep their friends back home updated without compromising completely on the traditional farmland setting – by installing a Wi-Fi tractor.
The dairy farming festival icon has made one of his agricultural vehicles capable of being a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, which will be driven around Worthy Farm in Somerset while the festival is on.
The eco-friendly New Holland vehicle has been fitted with network equipment by mobile operator EE, providing high-speed wireless internet access to anyone up to 10 metres away, allowing them to connect to the internet on their mobile devices.
EE brand director Spencer McHugh said: “We couldn’t be more excited about this year’s Glastonbury where we will be installing the first ever superfast 4G network at a UK festival to help those on-site stay connected.
“We hope festival goers enjoy logging on to the EE-pimped eco-tractor if they see it over the weekend.”
EE will be tweeting the tractor’s whereabouts so people know where to find it. Glastonbury throws its gates open on Wednesday, with the main musical acts performing from Friday to Sunday.
