There's nothing worse than losing your mates at a festival and not having the signal to try and find them. Or taking a photo and not being able to immediately upload it so people back home can see just how much fun you're having and feel immense jealousy.

Well, Glastonbury has teamed up with EE to sort you out. One of Micheal Eavis' tractors has been converted into a 4G Wi-fi hotspot, and will be driving around the site during the festival. The eco-friendly New Holland vehicle will provide Wi-Fi access to anyone up to 10 metres away.

EE brand director Spencer McHugh said: "We couldn't be more excited about this year's Glastonbury where we will be installing the first ever superfast 4G network at a UK festival to help those on-site stay connected. "Our 4G tractor demonstrates the innovative approach we're taking to bring the fastest mobile internet speeds to the UK in a uniquely Glastonbury way and uses similar technology to our fleet of 4G cabs trialled earlier this year.

Do you remember SXSW's awful Wi-Fi idea from last year?


So you're not drunkenly wandering around in search of a mythical internet-giving farm vehicle, EE will be tweeting the tractor's whereabouts to make it easy to find. (Nobody has pointed out that if you're on Twitter to see EE's tweets, you probably don't need the tractor.)
