It’s festival season on Virgin TV!


Starting on Thursday 25 June, get ready for a weekend of classic Glastonbury performances on the BBC, plus there’s more to enjoy on Sky Arts, Netflix and Prime Video

This year’s festival season may be cancelled, but who says the festival experience can’t come to you?


Glastonbury Festival should have been celebrating its 50th birthday this month, but in its absence the BBC will be giving you an absolutely huge weekend of classic performances from some of the biggest artists to have graced the famous fields of Somerset. David Bowie? Beyoncé? Arctic Monkeys? You can watch all of these stars and more over three epic nights on BBC Two.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg – or should that be pyramid? With more iconic sets on BBC Four, special shows on BBC Radio, plus a dedicated pop-up channel on BBC iPlayer featuring amazing highlights from yesteryear, there’s no shortage of Glasto goodness heading your way. Whether you set up a tent in your front room is up to you.


Want even more live music on your telly? From special concert performances for Sky Arts’ Front Room Festival to loads of top concert films elsewhere across Virgin TV, festival season officially starts now.
