New official Vodafone x Glastonbury app

1st July 2024 By: Adam

Vodafone has launched the new Official Glastonbury Festival App for 2024, packed with exciting, never-before-seen features, to give Glastonbury fans the ultimate experience at Worthy Farm.

For the first time ever, fans will be able to link their Spotify account to the official Glastonbury app, which will provide them with personalised recommendations on artists performing at the festival based on their listening habits.

When connected to their Spotify account, the app will serve users with their top 10 artists from the Line-up, in addition to a wider selection of recommendations via the Discover More option. This makes it perfect for discovering a hot new artist or spotting an existing favourite they may have missed in the packed line-up.

The new app also includes several major upgrades to the Line-up feature. Fans will be able to share their Line-up with friends within the app, allowing them to highlight their must-see acts, find out who their friends plan to see, and plan their day accordingly.The new improved Line-up also highlights when one or more of your favourited artists overlap, helping festivalgoers prepare for those inevitable clashes, and make the most of this year’s amazing line-up and stacked schedule.Further changes to the Line-up give fans the ability to:

  • pin their favourite stages to the top, saving them from scrolling down every time to find their favourite acts;
  • view performances grouped by stage, so festivalgoers can plot out their schedule based on who’s nearby, while saving on walking time; and
  • share their chosen line-up on social media before and after the festival.
All-new Map Pinning is another headline feature, allowing festivalgoers to drop pins anywhere on their festival map and share them with their friends. This can be used to pin locations such as your tent and where you parked your car, as well as to set meeting points to regroup before big acts – a massive benefit in Glastonbury’s 1,000-acre festival grounds.Further additions include new directional navigation for the Glastonbury Map, to help fans move between stages more easily, as well as the ability to filter the map for food stalls, camping shops and official merchandise stands, allowing foodies to track down their favourite Mexican, Thai, or veggie burgers with ease.There are also a number of revamps to the Search & Accessibility features, helping fans easily search artists, find Glastonbury’s many accessible campsites and viewing platforms, and locate areas such as Deafzone and the Sensory Calm Space.The free Official Glastonbury Festival App, powered by Vodafone, can be downloaded now from the App Store and Google Play Store.Vodafone has announced today that it will be offering non-Vodafone Glastonbury attendees the opportunity to participate in a free eSIM network trial. Festivalgoers who can’t connect to their current network provider, or those who fancy testing The Nation’s Network, can simply scan one of the QR codes by the Vodafone Connect & Charge stand, or follow the link in the Official Glastonbury App, to get 50GB data, 500 minutes and 500 texts for seven days​. As the trial will run on eSIM technology, users won’t have to change their number or swap their SIM card; they can simply switch between Vodafone’s network and their current provider easily and seamlessly through their device settings.
