Glastonbury Festival made a huge comeback last week; if you want to relive some of the biggest moments now that the festival is over, you can still find plenty of Glastonbury highlights on BBC iPlayer.
After a few years away, some of the biggest artists from around the world headed back to Somerset in England for the five-day event. This year, we saw performances from Pyramid Stage headliners Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar as well as Foals, Megan Thee Stallion and Charlie XCX, Sam Fender, Glass Animals, Olivia Rodrigo, YUNGBLUD, Phoebe Bridgers and so many more.
As usual, the father and daughter team behind Glastonbury (Michael and Emily Eavis) have put together an eclectic lineup that celebrates a huge variety of the best of current music and culture as well as digging into the history bucket for some classics. There are 10 main stages and a raft of other smaller stages covering everything from dance music, to circus acts, stand-up comedy and poetry.
This year the Sunday afternoon "Legend" spot was filled by the icon, Diana Ross. Past "Sunday Legends" included Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Van Morrison, and, memorably, Neighbours' Kylie Minogue.
If you want to get into the festival spirit from the comfort of your own home, here's how you can watch Glastonbury 2022 wherever you are.

Although Glastonbury Festival is now over for another year, you can still find plenty of full performances and highlights from the event available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
The BBC was the place to be for fans who wanted to check in with everything on offer at Glastonbury Festival this year without braving the great outdoors, as the broadcast had very ambitious plans for coverage spread across TV, radio, and their online streaming platforms, BBC Sounds and BBC iPlayer.
They broadcast everything from highlight reels, live sets, interviews and retrospectives across the entire BBC network pretty much from morning to night across the five days of the festival.
BBC iPlayer even had its own dedicated Glastonbury channel operating from Thursday, June 23 through to Sunday, June 26. This channel featured sets from the Pyramid, Other, West Holts, John Peel and Park Stages plus interviews and exclusive content that wasn't broadcast on TV.
TV broadcasts began every day with a new live show previewing what was to come and a recap of the main events of the previous day. Audiences could then watch live performances from the five main stages live and in full all day. Sets from the Pyramid Stage were also broadcast live in UHD for the very first time.
Full lineups from the festival can be found below:

The Other Stage had Foals, Megan Thee Stallion and The Pet Shop Boys as headliners. Other points of note — Glastonbury regular Kate Tempest, the poet and spoken word artist performed on Friday and Years and Years fans were treated to an "It's a Sin" collab with The Pet Shop Boys when the singer joined the band on stage on Sunday.
