It might not be quite the same as putting on your wellies and getting lost in a huge field in Somerset, but there are still plenty of ways to tune in to the Glastonbury Festival from the comfort of your own home.

Live sets from Worthy Farm will be streamed on BBC iPlayer and BBC Sounds throughout the festival, which runs from Wednesday 22nd to Sunday 26th June.

Coverage is brought to the audience by presenters including Cerys Matthews, Clara Amfo, Dermot O’Leary, Jo Whiley, Lauren Laverne, Vick Hope and Zoe Ball.

BBC iPlayer’s dedicated Glastonbury channel launches on Thursday 23 June, presenting a four day stream of live performances, preview programs and more.

The channel will feature the biggest sets from Pyramid, Other, West Holts, John Peel and Park Stages.

Over 90 sets and key tracks from the five stages filmed can be viewed on demand on BBC iPlayer throughout the weekend and 30 days after broadcast. Highlights of the best emerging British artists performing on the BBC Music Introducing Stage can also be viewed on BBC iPlayer after the event.

On Radio and BBC Sounds, 6 Music will broadcast All Day Glastonbury from Wednesday 22 June and there will be extensive coverage on Radio 1, Radio 1Xtra and Radio 2.

In addition to live reporting, the station will broadcast several shows in the run-up to the event.

Highlights include those of BBC One Stormzy: Path to Pyramid Stageaired on Monday 20 June.

There’s also a film that took three years to make – BBC Two’s Glastonbury: 50 Years and Counting, which will air on Sunday June 19th. The portrait of Glastonbury and its social and musical history is conveyed through the testimonies of its principal curators, Michael and Emily Eavis, and artists who have performed there.

Contributors are Chris Martin, Dua Lipa, Fatboy Slim, Florence Welch, Johnny Marr, Noel Gallagher, Thom Yorke and Stormzy.
