If you're excited to watch Glastonbury 2022 this year from the comfort of your own home, here's our guide to the legendary music festival and where and when you can watch all the acts as it makes its huge comeback this summer. 

There are 10 main stages and a raft of other smaller stages covering everything from dance music, to circus acts, to stand-up comedy and poetry.

After a few years away, some of the biggest artists from around the world are heading back to Somerset in England for the five-day event. This year, you can see 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. This year the Sunday afternoon "Legend" spot is filled by the icon, Diana Ross. Past "Sunday Legends" have included Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Van Morrison and, memorably, Neighbours' Kylie Minogue.

If you want to get into the festival spirit without risking the portaloos or wading through the muddy puddles, here's how you can watch Glastonbury 2022 wherever you are.

The BBC is the place to be for fans who want to check in with what's going on at Glastonbury. The BBC has ambitious plans for coverage across TV, radio, and their online streaming platforms, BBC Sounds and BBC iPlayer. 

They'll be broadcasting 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.

If you want to want to stream Glastonbury, BBC iPlayer (opens in new tab) will have its own dedicated Glastonbury channel operating from Thursday, June 23 through to Sunday, June 26. This channel will feature the biggest sets from the Pyramid, Other, West Holts, John Peel and Park Stages plus interviews and exclusive content you won't see on TV. 

TV programming starts each day with a new live show previewing what's to come and a recap of what's already happened. Audiences can watch live performances from the five main stages live and in full all day; by the weekend, there will be more than 90 performances available to watch.. Sets from the Pyramid Stage will even be broadcast live in UHD for the very first time. 

The BBC has now released its live TV schedule for Glastonbury 2022, which you can see below (all times BST).
