Those attending this month's V Festivals can keep up-to-date with Virgin Mobile's Festival Buddy service. Festival attendees will be able to check opening times, maps, traffic reports and any last minute line-up changes for both venues, as well as all the latest gossip from backstage. In addition, the Festival Buddy also offers exclusive V Festival downloads, including ringtones, wallpapers, as well as videos from some of the bands playing.
While the service is available to all mobile networks, Virgin Mobile customers will have exclusive access to the VIP Virgin Mobile Union Garden, the opportunity to win free inflatable chairs, as well as the chance to watch some of the bands from the V Stage through the Sony Ericsson SensMe game.
The V Festival is taking place on the 16 and 17 August at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire. To access the Festival Buddy, simply text the word BUDDY to 80310. Standard network SMS and data charges apply.
