The official Glastonbury 2019 app is now available on iPhone and Android, featuring a map, clashfinder and a competition to win tickets.
The app is from Glastonbury partner EE and is the only official app for the festival. A new ‘power saving mode’ changes the app’s bright-green colour theme to dark backgrounds, which should also be useful when navigating the festival’s late-night entertainment.
The clash-finder covers all stages in the full set times announcement and allows fans to ‘star’ performances to build their own personal schedule. A prompt when first opening the app asks if you’ll be attending Glasto’ or watching the BBC’s coverage from home to optimise the app’s functionality.
The map allows users to navigate the festival with the help of their phones via GPS but provides less detail than the full Glastonbury map published on the festival’s website.
EE will be bringing their 5G network to Glastonbury this summer, making it the country’s first 5G-connected festival.
Pyramid Stage headliner Stormzy performed at the 5G network’s switch-on event last week, where he said: “Big up EE, thank you for letting me launch your 5G network in the UK. Tonight was sick, I’m honoured to be part of history.”
Both the 2017 and 2019 Glastonbury apps were finally released on June 7th, despite EE previously saying the 2019 app would be released in May.
