Disney star turned pop princess Olivia Rodrigo performed a late-afternoon set on the Other Stage on the Saturday at Glastonbury 2022. It was the singer-songwriter's first ever show in the UK. For those who were unable to make it to Worthy Farm, you can still watch the whole show, from start to finish, for free, on-demand on BBC iPlayer. Follow our guide below as we explain how to watch Olivia Rodrigo at the 2022 Glastonbury Festival wherever you are in the world.
Following her stratospheric rise to fame in 2021 with Driving Licence, Rodrigo has been an ever-present fixture on the radio and in the charts around the world. And, with two UK number-one singles and a chart-topping album under her belt before the age of 20, the sky's the limit.
The Glasto set kicked off the British Isles leg of the Sour tour, and as such, fans can expect to catch just about every earworm on the album.
There's no need to be sour if you didn't manage to bag a ticket to this year's festivities, though. You can still experience what was a standout performance in full.

How to watch a Olivia Rodrigo live stream from anywhere
Unfortunately, if you try to watch your domestic coverage of Olivia Rodrigo's Glastonbury performance from somewhere outside your home country, you'll soon find a problem – geo-blocking.
That's where the broadcaster prevents you from watching your usual feed from abroad. It's a common problem for streamers all over the world, but there's an easy solution. The best VPN – otherwise known as a virtual private network – can alter your IP address to make it appear like you’re somewhere else. While this can be used for privacy, it can also be used to access your preferred streaming platform back home, even when you're out of the country.
