Wednesday 03 July 2013
Around 700,000 people have watched the Rolling Stones Glastonbury set since it was shown on Saturday night, according to BBC figures.
That is almost double the number who requested the Arctic Monkeys performance on iPlayer, while there were 163,650 requests for Mumford And Sons Sunday night closing set.
The BBC's controller of popular music Bob Shennan said: "Glastonbury 2013 on the BBC has been outstanding. Record-breaking numbers of people tuned in to what has been our most comprehensive digital Glastonbury offering to date.
"This year, we gave our audience the opportunity to watch what they wanted, when they wanted and how they wanted. And they did."
Almost 400,000 watched or listened to some of the coverage on their phones with a quarter of a million using a tablet to follow the festival.
The most popular video clip was Jake Bugg's performance of Lightning Bolt which had 70,580 requests, followed by Rita Ora's RIP with 39,280 requests.
