Like previous years, you can get plenty of Glastonbury live coverage via the BBC Glastonbury website where you'll be able to choose which stage you want to watch from. The Pyramid, Other, West Holts, John Peel and Park stages will all be streamed live in HD and you can watch on PC, smartphone, tablet and your smart TV.
They will be live between the following times:

Saturday 29th June - 13.00 - 00.15

This means the BBC Music Introducing Stage will not be live streamed, but the BBC said "on demand videos will be made available shortly after the event".
The website will be the place to go to watch back any performances of various acts you missed across the festival and make sure to use BBC iPlayer as well. You'll be able to catch-up on over 100 performances for 30 days following the festival.
Following @bbcglasto on Twitter will also help you keep up with everything that's happening at the music festival.
You don't have to watch online, of course, as the traditional television will also feed your need for live music without standing in a muddy field. TV (and radio) coverage will be presented by the likes of Jo Whiley, Clara Amfo, Edith Bowman, Lauren Laverne, Mark Radcliffe, Annie Mac, Zoe Ball and Huw Stephens.
