    One of the world’s biggest music festivals is back this weekend in the southwest of England, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out if you’ve not been able to get a ticket. We have everything you need to know about where to watch a free Glastonbury live stream wherever you are in the world.

    Headliners this year include Dua Lipa, Coldplay, and SZA. Shania Twain will be one of the biggest draws on Sunday, too. Unlike most massive music festivals with world-famous lineups, Glastonbury has an excellent tradition of being shown for free on multiple BBC channels in the UK. The BBC’s iPlayer coverage online is even wider, with multiple stages broadcasting at once – you’ll be able to watch performances on-demand after too.

    If you’re outside the UK, you’d usually be blocked from accessing the iPlayer streaming platform. However, we can show you how to live stream Glastonbury from anywhere like a local via a VPN (virtual private network), which lets you use the iPlayer website like you were in the UK.

    How to watch Glastonbury in the UK

    Coverage is spread across multiple BBC channels on TV throughout the weekend. That red button popup will probably be involved too, giving you even more options. All these channels and more will also be on the BBC iPlayer, so that’s probably your best chance of seeing more niche artists as the TV channels will opt for the bigger crowdpleasers. Naturally, entire sets from the headliners Dua Lipa, Coldplay, and SZA will be shown live on TV and online.

    What if you’re not in the UK, though?

    How to watch Glastonbury live stream from anywhere for free

    The VPN highlighted below is the best in the business and super simple to set up (no technical expertise required). It’ll help unlock global streaming options and greatly enhance your privacy and general security across your devices, so you’ll probably find a use for one long after you’ve used it to live stream Glastonbury this weekend – you can use it to watch Wimbledon for free on the iPlayer next week for example.
