Best festival tech 2017: Gadgets and free apps to help you survive the summer’s hottest music events

Festival season is almost upon us, and whether you’re heading to Glastonbury , Download , Latitude or Bestival , you’re probably starting to think about what to take.

Music festivals are a lot more high-tech than they used to be. You’re unlikely to struggle for mobile signal, and there are usually plenty of phone charging points around the place.

But that doesn’t mean a few extra gadgets and apps won’t come in handy, to help you make the most of your festival experience and ensure things run smoothly.

Here’s our pick of the best Festival tech for 2017:

Nokia 3310

Nokia made a splash this year with the relaunch of its classic 3310 handset.

Boasting battery life of up to a month and a durable plastic body in an array of bright colours, the new phone is aimed squarely at festival goers.

It even has a 2-megapixel rear camera so you can snap photos – although the 16MB of internal memory means you’ll probably want to get a microSD card to store them on.

While there’s no doubt the Nokia 3310 is the trendy phone to be seen with this festival season, the retro styling comes with an inflated price tag.
