World first smart tent at Glastonbury

Press Association logoPress Association 3 days ago Claire Hayhurst

The world's first 4G-connected smart tent will be live at Glastonbury Festival - featuring a mini fridge, live streams of performances and a security system.

Technology in the tent includes the fridge tweeting when stocks are running low and streams of six stages from across the 360 hectare festival site.

There is voice controlled LED lighting and music for a disco, along with solar powered wellington boot warmers to dry out wet footwear if it rains.

A security camera inside the tent, which will also act as a 4G wifi hotspot, will live stream via an app for campers to keep an eye on their belongings.

Finding the tent among Glastonbury Festival's million square metres of public camping will be simple - with a beacon on top lighting up when the master phone approaches.

The tent, also featuring Virtual Reality content, has been launched by EE - the official technology and communications partner for Glastonbury Festival.

Mat Sears, director of communications and sponsorship at EE, said: "While camping is a massive part of any music festival, it's not always the most comfortable experience, so we wanted to create a 4GEE Smart Tent that tested the latest tech-inspired comforts."
