EE launches Festival Power Bar for Glastonbury

Mobile network renews festival partnership for another year

Photographer: Sara BowreyVirtual Festivals on 15 April 2014

The Orange and T-Mobile merger will provide a bespoke 4G network on-site, offer free phone charging for everyone (regardless of your network) and create the official mobile app for this year's event.

However, the new revelation for 2014 will be the 'Festival Power Bar', a new piece of hardware designed to be carried around in your phone and plugged into your phone when it runs out of battery charge. For the first time at Glastonbury Festival, EE will provide exchange cabins around the site where you can swap your 'Festival Power Bar' for a fully charged one at no additional cost and as many times as you like over the course of the festival. At the end of the festival you keep the power bar for another year.

EE claims the Festival Power Bar works with all makes of phone and asks fans to buy it before June 9 to receive it ahead of Glastonbury Festival 2014.


As with almost all swap-shop schemes, EE has suggested that the appearance of your power bar replacement might not be as good as the one you hand over to them. They, of course, take no responsibility for that.

The package includes a Micro USB cable, a mini USB tip and a 30 pin tip for use with iPhone 4s and older iPhones, for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s and newer devices use the lightning cable provided with your device.

The EE Glastonbury Festival app will also be released for download this June, with a host of features including performance scheduling tools, an interactive map and social integration.

Glastonbury Festival 2014 takes place from 25-29 June on Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset.

The latest news from Glastonbury Festival was that the potential England World Cup fixture, that could fall on either Saturday or Sunday night of the festival, would not be shown this year.
