Glastonbury Festival 2022 – how to watch the BBC’s Glasto coverage

Glastonbury Festival 2022 is almost upon us, as hundreds of thousands of festival fans descend onto Worthy Farm for a weekend of music, cider and (hopefully) sun from Wednesday 23 June to Sunday 27 June.

Revelers at the festival can use the official EE Glastonbury line-up app to plan who they want to watch or check the official Glastonbury website, while fans at the event will also see a WiFi Rooster provided by EE that will remind passers-by of upcoming Pyramid Stage acts by playing their music.

However, if you weren’t one of the lucky few to secure yourself a ticket to the belated 50th anniversary of Michael Eavis’ brainchild (technically it’s the 52nd year) – never fear, as you can still catch the likes of headliners Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar from the comfort of home thanks to the BBC’s extensive coverage.
