Glastonbury’s new hyper-connectivity has changed the world. Whether in the crowd or on our laptops, we can all share pithy comments about Alex Turner’s curious accent on stage, everyone gets fair warning of Wayne Rooney’s arrival in the backstage area, and most of us have now seen some colourful opinions on how Rita Ora got that Pyramid Stage slot.
