30 minutes before the artists start their sets, passers-by will receive audio reminders – by playing famous songs from the headliners.

This allows people to find their way to the stage, with the rooster also serving as a free WiFi hotspot for festival-goers.

Headlining this year’s festival are Billie Eilish, Sir Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar.

EE expects around 200 terabytes of data to be used during the festival weekend.

That’s the equivalent of viewing eight billion Instagram posts.

It’s also double the 100 terabytes used during the last Glastonbury Festival in 2019.

The operator has installed temporary telephone poles to expand network coverage on the Worthy Farm property to meet increased demand.

It will again offer free device charging opportunities for users on any network in its EE Recharge Tent.

A golden egg joins the rooster as part of a competition.

When users are photographed and posted on Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #EEWifiRooster and EE, they enter a contest to win prizes.
