Glastonbury Festival 2019 breaks data records as music lovers flood social media in the blink of an eye

Worthy Farm returned to its normal stageless state with a record 99.3% of all tents brought home.

Now all that remains on the fields are the marks of dark tents where thousands of music lovers partied the night away.

Thanks to the truly impressive weather last week – who knew Glastonbury could take place without mud? – Visitors to Glasto flooded social media with countless snaps.

In fact, according to official EE data, sun-drenched festival-goers used over 100 terabytes of data, nearly double the amount used at Glastonbury 2017.

That equates to 51.5 billion Instagram selfies, or 460 million minutes of video streaming.

Explaining the feat, EE Marketing Communications Director Pete Jeayants, said: “Every year at Glastonbury Festival we see the demand for data increasing, and this year all expectations have been exceeded.

“This legendary festival is one of the most exciting places on the planet for music fans, and our data shows people are more eager than ever to share their experience with friends and family.”

Despite a host of chart-topping sensations on the Pyramid Stage, including Kylie Minogue and Miley Cyrus, it was The Killers who seemed to be the biggest draw for festival-goers.

Mr. Brightside singers have been added 55,000 times to custom line-up lists on the official EE app.

Meanwhile at home, Sheryl Crow’s first Glastonbury set in 22 years was the most streamed performance in the festival app, which for the first time ever integrated BBC iPlayer.

Over the weekend, a host of famous faces were spotted celebrating the festival’s return after a year off.

Brooklyn Beckham and his girlfriend Hana Cross were pictured near the EE Recharge area before catching up with comedian Jack Whitehall.

This year, the festival’s water supply has been strained due to the scorching heat.

In fact, the showers had to be closed in order to ensure that enough drinking water was available on site.

A member of security told Daily Star Online: “The showers have all been turned off.

“We must give priority to drinking water.

“Once that’s settled, we’ll try to get the showers working.”

Meanwhile, a festival-goer added: “We went to fetch water last night [Friday] water refill and she was completely exhausted.
