Glastonbury to 'go digital' header image

Published: 22nd Jun 2016

Broadband users are set to be able to enjoy increased coverage of the Glastonbury Festival. 

The BBC has vowed to make this year's focus on the famous event "truly digital" with more than 120 performances exclusively broadcast. 

Mark Friend, BBC Controller for Multiplatform across Radio and Music, commented: "Just as we did with sport at the Olympics, our ambition this year is to bring our audiences even closer to the music they love at Glastonbury."

The broadcaster will provide live streaming of the Pyramid, Other, John Peel, West Holt, Park and BBC Introducing stages, which viewers will be able to watch via their PC, laptop, tablet and other devices. 

To make the most of the BBC's coverage of Glastonbury and witness live performances by the likes of the Rolling Stones, Arctic Monkeys and Mumford & Sons, a good internet connection is a must. 

Satellite broadband can provide a super-fast and reliable service even in remote, rural areas.
