- Vodafone’s app lets you create personalised line-ups of your favourite acts
- You can also choose to receive alerts for when you need to set off to see them
Next week, 210,000 excited festivalgoers will head to Worthy Farm for what’s arguably the best festival in the world – Glastonbury.
This year’s event will see several global superstars take to the stage, including Elton John, the Arctic Monkeys and Lizzo.
But with the festival set across a whopping 900 acres, ensuring you’re organised enough to catch your favourite acts is no mean feat.
Thankfully, help is at hand this year, in the form of Vodafone’s brand new Glastonbury app.
The app lets you create personalised line-ups of your favourite acts, as well as alerts for when you need to set off to see them in action.

‘Do not bring disposable vapes. They pollute the environment and can be hazardous at waste centers,’ Glastonbury’s guidance reads
Vodafone is the Official Connectivity Partner of Glastonbury Festival this year.
Max Taylor, Vodafone’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: ‘Our partnership with Glastonbury has added another iconic British moment to our growing partnership portfolio.
‘As the new Official Connectivity Partner we want to keep fans and Festival-goers more connected than before.
‘We predict that people will be using even more data on site so boosting our reliable, award-winning network to its highest ever capacity is essential.’
The app is free to download from the App Store and Google Play Store, and includes an interactive map to make it easier to navigate the 100 stages.
With over 3,000 performers this year, it can be tricky to organise who to see and when.
For example, some of the stages are 40 minutes walk apart, so it’s not simply a matter of nipping over to see the next act.
To help, the app allows you to make a personlised line-up, and will send you notifications when it’s time for you to head to the next act.
Other notable features include built-in Worthy FM radio, which provides essential information and entertainment for those travelling to and from the festival as well as once they are on site.

The launch of the app comes as Glastonbury organisers advised festivalgoers not to bring disposable vapes with them, as part of its efforts to ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ plastics.
The festival has updated its packing guidelines on the website, which now say ‘not to bring’ disposable vapes.
It remains unclear how – or whether – this rule can be enforced, and Glastonbury declined to comment.
But there is the suggestion the e-cigarettes could be confiscated when festivalgoers are searched as they enter.
