EE have provided a fibreglass ‘High-speed Herd’ based on the dairy herd which usually graze at Worthy Farm in Somerset, where the festival is held.

The cows shouldn’t be hard to spot as they have been brightly decorated by festival artist Hank Kruger. Powered by a bespoke 4G network, the cows will let festival goers log on to upload pictures and videos from the festival in superfast time. Not to mention chewing the cud with friends.

The cows will be operational from the moment the gates open at Glastonbury on Wednesday.
