Glastonbury 2011 is now well underway, and as usual it is the weather that takes the main focus, and not those who headline the show. Not to get too much into it, from what we know the weather is changeable and that there is still not much grass in certain places. Now you may wonder why on earth we would want to talk about a music festival on a tech site? Well just imagine that you are at the event and you wish to know what time or where you have to get to a certain stage to catch an act; for that you will need apps for Glastonbury 2011.

These apps will give you a huge amount of information on the line-up and guides on your iPhone or Android device. The first app that we have for you is Glastonbury 2011 for iOS and once installed means that there is no need to ever get lost at the event. This app uses Orange GlastoNavwith its AR map along with a full listings guide of who is on and when.

What we also like about this app is how you can share how you are feeling to Facebook, which other users of the app will see. To give you an idea at just how the guide looks, just think how the Sky TV iPhone app looks when you are looking through the program guide.

The other iOS app is Glastonbury Gig-gidy Guide 2011 and will help you get the most from the biggest music festival in the UK. Whenever we go to such an event we do not want to make too much of an effort, so you will pleased to know that this app handles all that hassle for you by allowing to get he most from the next few days.

There are two Android apps that stood out above the rest, and those are Glastonbury 2011 and Glastonbury Scheduler. Now the first app is the same as the iOS one, and we forget to mention one more important feature, and that is news alerts if there are any changes over the weekend.

The other app is called Glastonbury Scheduler and is pretty much the same as the second iOS app that we mentioned. Once installed you will be able to mark which acts you wish to see, but the most important feature that we like is “Tent Finder.” This works in the same way as Find My Car, and puts a GPS tag on your tent so that you can find your way back after the day has come to an end.

Have you installed any of these apps, are they a great help?
