This year, they’re delivering breakfast in bed to happy campers and taking your snaps to stick up on the main stage screens. Plus, the full lineup of acts will be available as ringtones for your phone. Whether it’s Morrissey or Faithless, you can call the shots and stick your own headline act on your phone. Here are a few more initiatives Virgin Mobile are offering festival goers...
