Ah, Glastonbury. Proof that music can bring together 100,000 strangers just so they can spend a weekend in a muddy field. For those at home, the festival is just as impressive a spectacle, thanks to BBC iPlayer, which means you can catch up with almost any artist you wish whenever you like for a whole month. Think of it as a chance to curate your own music festival, without having to bother with a tent.
With hours and hours of live music on tap, where do you begin? To help get you started, we’ve picked out some of our Glastonbury highlights from the streaming line-up. (Watch this space for more being added in the coming days.)
