Participation at large music festivals is changing, with many attendees using social media platforms to mediate and shape their experiences of attending such events. We used a combination of Twitter and Foursquare to collect social media posts from attendees at the Glastonbury 2013 music festival and performed a thematic analysis in order to better understand the in-situ use of such media. Our findings reflect the wide range of users' purposes in such settings and provides a basis for further exploration of this area.
