Glastonbury is all about hedonism, partying hard and catching a few legendary acts along the way. This year sees the likes of Dua Lipa, Coldplay, LCD Soundsystem, Little Simz, Shania Twain and many more take to the famed Pyramis. But it’s not all about the main stage. From Annie Mac to The Zutons via Idles, Jungle and Justice, there’s plenty to see across Worthy Farm. Didn’t get a ticket? No bother, because most performances from the four main stages will be via on demand streaming through Glastonbury’s official broadcaster, the BBC.

Here’s how to watch Glastonbury coverage from the comfort of your home.

Who’s playing Glastonbury 2024?

Glastonbury 2024 takes place Wednesday 26 June to Sunday 30 June. For the uninitiated, Glastonbury is a three day extravaganza of great music, legendary artists and more than a few muddy wellies. It spans over 100 stages, from tiny folk tents to many, MANY dancy tents. This year, Dua Lipa, Coldplay and Sza headline the famed Pyramid Stage, following in the footsteps of Beyonce, Blur, David Bowie and countless other legends.

The BBC airs over 40 hours of coverage across its TV channels throughout the whole weekend. Over 85 hours of tunes available through the BBC Sounds app, and there’ll be much more to discover through the BBC’s radio channels.

Glastonbury is probably the only festival in the world where you’re equally as likely to bump into Ed Sheeran performing an acoustic set in a tiny tent, as you are stumbling into a late night goth rave. Thousands of bands and DJs will make the pilgrimage to Glastonbury this year, and you can join in on the action too.

How can I watch?

Glastonbury live stream


To watch Glastonbury in the US, you’ll need to have access to BBC iPlayer which is where all the on demand streams are located. The only snag is that iPlayer is only available to UK viewers, as the broadcaster only has the rights to air its content in the UK. 

The easiest way to get around that is by using a VPN to change your location to the UK, but not all VPN services will be able to navigate iPlayer’s geo-blocking. ExpressVPN is our pick for the most trusted and reliable VPN services out there. From ~$8.60/£6.74 per month, users can access the BBC archive of drama, documentaries, and of course the Glastonbury weekend. An ExpressVPN account also grants access to 11 channels across the BBC.


Access to all BBC Glastonbury content is available through BBC iPlayer. This includes sets that were on BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Three and BBC Four and spans the festival’s Pyramid, Other, West Holts, Woodsies and Park stages.
