Festival organisers have shared an extensive list of online content and upcoming coverage for #GlastoAtHome.
A 'virtual line-up' for Glastonbury 2020, featuring BBC coverage, playlists, documentaries, debates, live-streams and more, has been revealed, ahead of what would have been the iconic festival's 50th edition.
Earlier this year, organisers Michael and Emily Eavis announced that Glastonbury 2020 would be cancelled, amid the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.
"Clearly this was not a course of action we hoped to take for our 50th anniversary event," they revealed in a statement, "But following the new government measures announced this week – and in times of such unprecedented uncertainty – this is now our only viable option."
Due to take place from June 24 to 28, Glastonbury was set to celebrate its 50th anniversary with headliners Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Diana Ross, Lana Del Rey, Thom Yorke and many more.
Now, organisers have unveiled an official breakdown of all the virtual content you can expect over the weekend – including the BBC Glastonbury Experience, which will see classic Glastonbury sets broadcast across TV, radio and online.
Other highlights include the 2020 Main Stage Playlists, featuring acts who would have been performing at this year's festival; a 2017 documentary filmed behind the scenes at the John Peel Stage; the Field of Avalon Virtual Festival Experience; two Left Field debates making the case for radical responses to these challenging times; Block9's live warehouse party on June 27; live-streamed DJ sets at The Common's Rumshack & Temple; a special livestream from Unfairground's Salon Carousel on June 26; and much more.
