EE announced on its website (visit EE website here), “EE, the UK’s most advanced digital communications company, and the Glastonbury Festival today announced the launch of the only official mobile application for this year’s event, ‘Glastonbury 2013’. Designed by EE, official communications and technology partner of the 2013 event, as the ultimate digital guide to the world’s most loved festival, the app will help those both on and off site make the most of the weekend by allowing them to keep up to date with exclusive content and the latest news direct from the Festival team. It is available in app stores now - on iOS and Android devices – and is free to users of any mobile network.”

The network operator added, “All new for 2013, the BBC’s live streams of performances at Glastonbury will be accessible from the EE app over the weekend, meaning that users both on and off site can check out Festival sets via their Smartphone. Glastonbury goers already on EE’s 4G network will be able to stream content seamlessly thanks to EE’s unique on site infrastructure that sees Glastonbury set to become the UK’s first 4G-enabled festival. Starting on Friday 28 June, users will be able to access seven live stream feeds directly from the BBC’s Glastonbury website with content available from the Pyramid, Other, Park, John Peel, West Holts and BBC Introducing stages, as well as a roaming camera hosted by leading BBC presenters.”

Spencer McHugh, EE Brand Director, said, “Our on site 4G network will make it even easier for Glastonbury goers to access all the exciting digital content available through the app this year. The 2013 app builds on everything we’ve learnt over many years of working with the Festival under Orange to offer some fantastic new features and content including linking up with the BBC’s on site coverage. Whether you’re at the Festival and can’t get to the stage on time or relaxing in your garden at home, this function will allow users to enjoy live Festival performances direct from the app for the first time.”

Emily Eavis, organiser of Glastonbury Festival, said, “We put a lot into making this festival as good as it can possibly be. I hope the app helps people navigate the site and introduces them to acts they've never seen before.”
