The BBC has announces its plans for broadcasting Glastonbury 2017. Once again the BBC is the place to watch and listen to all the best sets from Worthy Farm, from headline performances to emerging new artists across TV, Radio and Online.
In 1997, BBC Two broadcast from Glastonbury for the first time capturing Radiohead playing their seminal set on the Pyramid Stage. Now 20 years on, BBC Two will be devoting Friday night to an evening with Radiohead, broadcasting their headline set on the Friday night, as well as the whole of the performances by headliners Foo Fighters on Saturday and Ed Sheeran on Sunday, along with legendary Bee Gee, Barry Gibb, who is performing in the Sunday teatime slot.
This year there will be over 30 hours of Glastonbury on TV across BBC Two and BBC Four, with more hours on BBC Two in peak than ever before. BBC Radio 3 will be broadcasting from the festival for the first time, treating their listeners to the very best of world music. BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 6 Music will all host live shows from Worthy Farm.
Online, the BBC will be streaming 120 performances from six stages across the festival, all in HD and available to watch on BBC iPlayer, both live and on demand throughout the weekend and beyond. For more information, click here.
