Use NordVPN to watch any stream

The festival organisers are steadily drip- drip- drip-feeding the acts at the biggest party of the summer, and though the full Glastonbury lineup and day-by-day schedule are still taking shape, we have a good idea of what to expect.

Breakout R&B singer SZA is a Glastonbury debutant, while Dua Lipa last performed at Worthy Farm seven years ago, before she established herself as a global megastar. Coldplay, by contrast, reached Dave Grohl levels of ubiquity before the Foo Fighters man himself. This will be the fifth time they headline the festival. 

After packing out the Avalon field two years ago, Sugababes have been bumped up to the West Holts stage, while Avril Lavigne and the one and only Cyndi Lauper will rock Pilton for the first time.

Follow our guide to watch a Glastonbury 2024 from all over the world – including free options. We've also listed the confirmed Glastonbury lineup for the main stages further down the page.

How to watch Glastonbury free online

FREE on BBC iPlayer

Fans in the UK can live stream Glastonbury for FREE on BBC iPlayer, with a valid TV licence. 

The platform service works across a huge array of devices, including laptops, tablets, smartphones, media streaming devices like Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Chromecast and Roku, and PlayStation and Xbox consoles.

Outside the UK? If you want to watch Glastonbury on BBC iPlayer whilst traveling abroad you'll need to download NordVPN, as detailed below.

The BBC is yet to reveal the ins and outs of its coverage, but the biggest slots are usually televised across BBC One, Two and Three, while dedicated live streams of the main stages tend to be heavily promoted on BBC iPlayer.

Unblock any stream with a VPN

If you're keen to watch Glastonbury but you're away from home and access to the festival coverage is geo-blocked, then you could always use a VPN to access it (assuming you're not breaching any broadcaster T&Cs, of course). You may be surprised by how simple it is to do.
