Glastonbury 2020 goes virtual – how to watch classic sets on TV and iPlayer

Thousands of people should have been descending on Worthy Farm in Somerset this weekend for Glastonbury Festival.

This year was set to be all about celebrating the iconic event’s 50th anniversary but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Glasto party has been put on hold until 2021.

Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Dianna Ross were just three of the many names due to take to the Pyramid Stage over the weekend.

Festival organisers Micheal and Emily Eavis announced in March that the festival, which was due to take place from June 24 to 28, was taking an “enforced fallow year”.

But Emily has said that next years event will be a “double celebration” during an interview on BBC 6 Music.

“Because we’re rolling two festivals together, we’ve got a hell of a lot of surprises that we were planning for the 50th and I think we’re going to try and get those things going for next year,” she told host Lauren Laverne.

“Logistically it’s a little bit complicated because we’d already pencilled in many, many of the acts for 2021… so we’re trying to work out how much we can fit into next year.”

But while many eagerly await its return, there’s a way you don’t have to be void of any Glastonbury action this year.

Fans can reminisce and relive memorable festival moments thanks to the BBC and the Glastonbury Experience 2020.
