How To Charge Your Phone At Glastonbury

In 2016, charging your phone is a necessity. As the masses descend on Glastonbury Festival 2016, ticket holders reach for aeroplane mode in an attempt to save that precious juice.

If you’re worried about going flat at Glastonbury, here’s all the information you need on how and where to charge your phone at the festival, so you don’t find yourself lost and totally twatted somewhere near Block 9 at 5am with no way home.

Recharge tent
The traditional and free to all ‘Recharge tent’ returns and this year has doubled in capacity. It is located next to the Other Stage and you are free to charge your phone whatever network you are on.


‘The Juice Tube Power Bank’
Your second option is to purchase ‘The Juice Tube Power Bank’ before you go. It’s a portable mini-charger from EE and new for 2016. If you are taking one of these to the event here’s what you need to know:

There is a daily Juice Power Bank swap service on site, which enables users to exchange their out of charge product for a fully charged one, once a day, for free. This service is available from the Recharge Tent or the Exchange Cabins. There are two of these on site, one near The Glade, the other between Silver Hayes and The Pyramid stage.

The Exchange cabins are open from Wednesday 3pm-8pm and Thursday to Sunday, 10am-10pm.

There will be also be a triple-capacity temporary 4G network and free 4G WiFi hotspots available to use on site, regardless of what network you’re on.

Now, that’s sorted there’s just the mud to deal with.

Happy Festival!
