With two days until gates open, we wanted to let you know about our online coverage for this year’s Festival.
Here on the official site
As in previous years, we’ll be posting pictures from our team of photographers, videos from the Solent crew and constant updates (via Twitter) right here on the official site. Plus, we’ll have our new green blog and the return of Trader Tales, in which cook/writer Maite Cicognini tells about life as a trader in the The Park. And we’ll have poems from our 2011 website poet-in-residence, Tony Walsh (aka Longfella). Plus we’ll have a widget from the BBC, containing lots of their coverage of the Festival.
As with last year, we’ll be using two Twitter accounts during the Festival.
twitter.com/glastofest (aka @glastofest)
We’ll be using our main Twitter page to post official news updates from the site – be it travel information, weather reports or line-up changes/announcements. If you’re coming to the Festival, this will be well worth checking on your mobile phone’s web browser once in a while.
twitter.com/glastolive (aka @glastolive)
We’ll be using this feed to post constant pictures and comments from our team of reporters roving the site, throughout the Festival. This feed will be embedded onto the official website. Its purpose will be to give a real flavour of what’s going on, throughout the site. (We’re giving it its own feed so that we can keep big news announcements separate, and to prevent us spamming up the Twitter feeds of people who follow @glastofest with our constant updates.)
On the mobile app
For the first time, we’ll also have access to post news stories to Orange’s official Glastonbury mobile app – which we’ll be using to post major announcements. You can still download the free app by clicking the buttons below.
Bring. It. On.
