How to watch Glastonbury 2017 from the comfort of your own home

You don't have to stand in a field to watch what's going on.
So you’re not at Glastonbury. That’s cool – not all of us are either. We’ve got people on the ground, as well as glued to the telly and internet to bring you coverage of this year’s festival. Because not being on the ground doesn’t mean you can’t watch what’s going on.

Thanks to the unique way the BBC sends a small city of people to Worthy Farm every June, you can get pretty much unrivalled coverage of the event online, on radio and on TV across the weekend. Here’s how you can get involved.

Most of the action takes place online. You can watch six stages via the BBC’s Glastonbury website here, with action from the Pyramid, Other Stage, West Holts, the John Peel Stage, the Park Stage and the BBC Introducing Stage. If you have a connected TV, you can watch all of that via the red button too.

If you don’t have a connected TV though, worry not. If you press the red button between 7:30pm and 1:30am on Friday, 5:30pm and 1am on Saturday and 6pm and midnight on Sunday, you’ll be able to watch three curated Glastonbury streams featuring highlights from 120 bands, which isn’t bad.

You’ll also be able to watch back full sets from over 90 artists, which you can’t do if you’re in a field. Rewinding in real life tends to lead to vomiting.

There’ll also be coverage across both TV and radio. There are shows coming from the festival across BBC Radio 1, 1xtra, Radio 2, Radio 3 and 6 Music.

TV coverage proper also kicks off this evening, with shows across BBC Two and BBC Four across the weekend.

We’ll be bringing you updates from Worthy Farm across the weekend too, as well as highlighting live stream performance start times via Twitter at @readdork.

All you need now is to put up a living room tent and crack open a cold one. Sorted.
