BBC iPlayer is heading to Glastonbury 2017 this weekend – and the site is streaming more than ever, with over 100 performances beaming from the field in Somerset to TVs, computers and mobile devices across the country.
BBC Music will live-stream gigs across six stages at the festival, all available on bbc.co.uk/glastonbury as well as iPlayer. Highlight performances from the Pyramid, Other, John Peel, Park, West Holts and BBC Introducing stages will be available live throughout the weekend. Best of all, though, is that fans who have missed the beginning of a set will also be able to go back to the start on connected TVs by pressing the red button, and on BBC iPlayer directly, so they never miss a minute of their favourite acts.
On TV there will be over 30 hours of Glastonbury on TV across BBC Two and BBC Four. BBC Two will be broadcasting headline sets from Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran. On Sunday, BBC Two will also be showing highlights of the set from Glastonbury debutante and all round pop princess Katy Perry from the famous Pyramid Stage. On Sunday, the channel will show the entire set from legendary Bee Gee Barry Gibb, who is performing in the teatime slot, followed by another legend, Nile Rodgers and his band, Chic.
BBC Four coverage on Saturday includes a live performance by the most famous family in musical history – The Jacksons – and from Brooklyn-based band The National. There will also be live coverage of the performance from the John Peel Stage by US singer songwriter Josh Tillman, aka Father John Misty. On Sunday, highlights include Rag’n’Bone man’s Glastonbury debut on the Other Stage, followed by Mr Boombastic himself, Shaggy.
Old-school viewers will be able to press the Red Button on their remote control over the weekend to watch three Glastonbury red button streams, which will show highlights from over 100 bands, from 7.30pm to 1.30am on Friday 23rd June, 5.30pm to 1am on Saturday 24th June and 6pm to midnight on Sunday 25th June.
Bob Shennan, Director BBC Radio & Music, says: “BBC Music is thrilled to be offering music lovers an unsurpassed range of performances live from Glastonbury, from multi-million selling headline acts on the Pyramid stage, to emerging artists on the BBC Music Introducing stage.
“With over 100 performances streamed online as well as 30 hours of TV coverage and live broadcasts on Radio 1, 1Xtra, Radio 2, 6 Music and Radio 3, we will be offering music lovers so many ways to experience the unique atmosphere of the world’s most famous music festival – at home or on the move.”
