The BBC has confirmed their coverage for Glastonbury Festival 2016. BBC Music will be presenting coverage for audiences tuning in via radio, online and TV with even more to see via BBC Red Button.
Over 25 hours of TV coverage will be spread across BBC One (The One Show), BBC Two and BBC Four.
This year also marks the 20th year of the BBC Television coverage of the festival which began in 1997.
The new BBC Music app will give users access to more Glastonbury than ever before, allowing them to personalise their journey according to their personal preferences.
The free app, which launched earlier this year, will be full of exclusive sets and tracks from across the weekend, allowing audiences to get up close and personal with the music that they love.
Last year, 18.9 million people saw some of the BBC’s coverage, with an audience of 1.8 million tuning in to Lionel Richie’s Sunday afternoon legends slot.
BBC Glastonbury’s digital offer returns this year with online live streams of six stages, all in HD and available to watch on the BBC Glastonbury website across the weekend.
There will be around 120 performances available on demand at bbc.co.uk/glastonbury and BBC iPlayer, with high-quality pictures from stages as well as roaming photography from around the festival, also online.
Bob Shennan, Director of BBC Music, said: “Glastonbury promises to be a magical weekend, especially this year with so many homegrown performers including Jeff Lynne, Adele, Muse and Coldplay.
If you can’t make it to Worthy Farm, BBC Music will bring you the cream of the festival, whether you’re at home or on the move. ”
Glastonbury Festival takes place 22nd-26th June 2016.
