The BBC will present more live and on-demand coverage from the Glastonbury Festival 2023 than ever before in the coming days.
And, for the first time, performances on the iconic Pyramid Stage will be streamed live in British Sign Language from Friday June 23 to Sunday June 25 on BBC iPlayer.
“We’ve worked in partnership with the BBC since 1997, and they’ve become an incredibly valuable part of what we do at Glastonbury,” said Emily Eavis, co-organiser of the festival.
“I think we’ve created something really special together and we’re delighted that they’re continuing to evolve their coverage with additions such as streaming Pyramid Stage performances live in British Sign Language.”
Glastonbury Festival is the largest greenfield music and performing arts festival in the world and there will be over 40 hours of programming across the BBC’s TV channels and over 85 hours of live broadcasts on the BBC’s pop radio networks.
New podcasts, collections and playlists will be available on BBC Sounds and BBC iPlayer will present an expanded, twelve-day celebration of the festival, featuring over 40 hours of coverage on BBC iPlayer’s Glastonbury Channel, in addition to numerous streams and classic Glastonbury performances.
