The purists who love yurt holidays UK and other forms of getting back to nature won’t be too happy with this but in today’s society and particularly in the festival environment it has become vital to stay in touch with the world digitally. Luckily for the 115,000 or so Glastonbury attendees this year the network provider EE has stepped in with the least incognito looking flock of Wi-Fi equipped cows ever, but they’re pretty cool.
Low-key is not how you would describe this herd of fibreglass cows but to be fair they won’t really be out of place on the farm in the multi-cultural community of Glastonbury. All of the faux cattle are fitted with 4G routers and are modelled on the genuine real life field dwellers which call the rolling hills of Worthy Farm home during the time that the festival’s not on.
The primarily Glastonbury festival which took place in 1970 saw revellers greeted with free milk, which shows how times have changed as now free Wi-Fi is integral so that moments will never go unshared.
Love them or hate them, it’s a sign of the times, and we kind of like how cute the cows seem to be embracing the festival vibes with their brightly coloured hides.
