82ASK launches festival SMS advice service

Mobile phones

glasto.jpgSo, you’re at Glastonbury this weekend, and you have a burning question which you need the answer to RIGHT NOW. For example, ‘How do I get out of this mudforsaken hellhole?’ or ‘Why oh why oh why did I drink that third bottle of pear cider last night?’ Whaddya do?

Well, mobile texting firm 82ASK reckons it can help. The company is launching a service aimed at festivalgoers in the UK, giving them three free questions. Okay, so they won’t tell you what was really in that burger you just ate – it’s more stuff like what stage a certain band is playing on, and advice on pitching your tent.

To use it, text HELPME followed by your question to 82275. Once you’ve done three questions, each query will cost you £1. The service will be in operation at Creamfields, Global Gathering, The Big Chill, T in The Park, Glastonbury and The Reading and Leeds Festivals.
