It’s here! The Olympics were outstanding but we missed you Glasto and we are thrilled to have you back again this year. The weather prediction is for at least some rain, so if you didn’t manage to get your hands on one of the most-coveted tickets of the summer, don’t despair. You can watch all of the action from your living without any of the camping, moshing and mud (unless of course you camp, mosh and get muddy in your living room – we’ll support that too.)
Whack on your favourite wellies and tune in to some of the best music acts on the planet. We want you to be able to relax and enjoy the fun so we’ve done all of the hard work for you.
Here are your ways to watch this weekend:
What’s on – TV Guide
In celebration of one of the hottest-ticketed events of the summer, we have created a special Glastonbury Guide page on our TV Guide so you know what’s on which channel, when. How good is that?
