Glastonbury is a true icon amongst music festivals - attracting headliners Arctic Monkeys and Elton John for the 2023 festival.

Of course, being an iconic festival, getting a ticket can seem nigh on impossible, meaning it can be simpler to watch the action on TV or tune in to radio coverage of the performance.

Alternatively, you might love the idea of days of varied music, but find yourself grimacing at the thought of spending multiple days sleeping in a tent amid the elements (or queueing for the loo).

Whether tickets sold out or you're not much of a festival-goer, you can indeed enjoy Glastonbury from the comfort of your own home - and that's catching all the action on BBC TV and iPlayer, often watching some of the sets virtually live as they happen.

So, when can you watch Glastonbury this year and will it all be shown?

Here's everything you need to know.

The BBC have revealed their full schedule for Glasto coverage - and it includes 40 hours of TV scheduling and 85 hours of radio coverage.

The broadcasts will also have a focus on accessibility, the BBC has declared, with Pyramid Stage performances streamed live in British Sign Language for the first time.

The BBC's extensive 12-day coverage of the music festival will land on channels BBC One, BBC Two and BBC Three, and includes the return of the dedicated Glastonbury Channel on BBC iPlayer.

The acts confirmed to be shown on BBC's TV channels so far include:

More will be announced in due course.

Clara Amfo, Lauren Laverne, Jack Saunders and Jo Whiley will be leading up TV coverage over the duration of the festival.

Fans can watch the same TV streams on iPlayer if they are watching from a laptop or tablet, but iPlayer will also have exclusive content not shown on the traditional TV channels.

Viewers will be able to navigate between live streams from five filmed stages: the Pyramid, Other, West Holts, Woodsies and Park stages.

Also, the BBC Glastonbury Webcam will have its own stream on iPlayer for the first time.

It launched at sunrise (4.30am) on Monday, June 19, allowing excited festival-goers and the curious watch the festival being set up ready for the arrival of thousands.

The BBC has also said that 'over 90 sets and key tracks from the five filmed stages, as well as themed performance compilations, will be available to watch on demand on BBC iPlayer throughout the weekend.'

Content will remain on the platform for 30 days after broadcast.

The BBC will have a whopping 85 hours of coverage across Radio 1 and Radio 1 Dance, Radio 1Xtra, Radio 2, 6 Music, Asian Network and Radio 4.

6 Music will serve as the radio home of the festival by providing all-day coverage from Wednesday, June 21 to Sunday, June 25.

There's also going to be some exciting live broadcasts merging regular programming with Glasto.

On Friday, June 23, Zoe Ball's Radio 2 Breakfast Show will be broadcast live from the festival. On the same day, Radio 4's Woman's Hour will be broadcast live from Glastonbury for the first time ever.

Radio 2 will also release two special programmes dedicated to Sunday headliner Elton John.
