One of the many great things about Glastonbury is that even if you failed to bag a ticket in the annual scramble, you can still watch it live from the comfort of your sofa (which, let’s face it, beats a muddy, possibly even flooded tent any day).
Glastonbury coverage will be available on your TV, iPad and iPhone, with the BBC already releasing its schedule for a weekend of top-notch tunes. There will be highlights programmes presented by the likes of Jo Whiley, Lauren Laverne and Huw Stephens each evening so you can catch up on the best of what you have missed that day (full lineup and stage times here). Glastonbury will also be live on the interactive red button from 7pm.
