If you’re were one of the people lucky enough to have bagged a Glastonbury ticket this year, it is likely you wanted to keep friends at home up to date with Instagram snaps, Tweets and Facebook statuses showing off all the weird and wonderful festival fun you were having.

In the past you would usually have had as much chance of picking up a good wifi signal at a festival as you would of finding a clean portaloo. Until this year, thanks to an unlikely piece of farm equipment, Glastonbury-goers have been promised a chance of keeping in touch.

One festival organiser, Michael Eavis, has had his tractor converted into a 4G wifi hotspot which will be driven around the site at Worthy Farm in Somerset during this weekend’s event.

The eco-friendly New Holland vehicle has been fitted with network equipment by mobile operator EE, providing high-speed wifi access to anyone up to 10 meters 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 super-fast 4G network at a UK festival to help those on-site stay connected.

The 4G tractor demonstrates the innovative approach we’re taking to bring the fastest mobile internet speeds to the UK in a uniquely Glastonbury way and uses similar technology to the fleet of 4G cabs trialed earlier this year”.

EE tweeted the tractor’s whereabouts so people know where to find it.
