Created by Horticultrual artist Agrumi, the topiary will be constructed from moss and adorned with silk flowers, ribbons and LEDs to make them truly shine. The topiary will be placed around the venue amidst other temporary public artworks and sculptures - just one of the many features that makes the Glastonbury festival such a drawcard each year – and will take the shape of some of Glastonbury’s more notable landmarks, including the Pyramid Stage, the Arcadia Spider and the Park Tower.
The 4G wi-fi technology that is to be incorporated into the topiary is new technology according to EE and utilises Cradlepoint Advanced Edge Routing (AER) to aid in gaining connectivity in the remote location of Glastonbury. Additional preparations such as the installation of an additional mobile antenna are being made to accommodate the mobile traffic, and the 4G spectrum capacity is being tripled by EE.
So if participants at the festival, which begins this week, are looking for the best hot spot they need to head for the trees.
