The organizers of the Glastonbury Festival have launched a new mobile app that they hope will connect the audience and make it easier to get around the festival. It seems like there’s no way have a music festival in 2011 without having a mobile app, so what have they offered?
The Glastonbury mobile app has a number of interesting elements, like full lineup listings and an interactive schedule with reminders. There’s a Glastonbury Festival map (no word on whether it will actually place you in real time on the map, but how great would that be?), plus festival news.
There’s an interesting social media tie-in though, with a feature that lets users show their mood. This could allows festival goers the ability to show where a really good show is happening to a chance to vent frustration over a long wait in line for something. This could let people collectively display hot zones to alert others where the action is.
The Glastonbury mobile app is available for free, for Android, iPhone and Nokia. Sorry BlackBerry users, but you’ll have to go unconnected.
