The Gate to Glastonbury is Officially Opened by Michael Eavis

After a three-year hiatus, the Glastonbury Festival returns this weekend and the BBC will once again be the go-to destination for legendary sets and exclusive behind-the-scenes information from the world’s most beloved music festival.

I am very proud of our long broadcasting history from Worthy Farm. Emily and Michael Eavis first welcomed BBC cameras to Worthy Farm in 1997, beginning a partnership that has now lasted 25 years.

We share the same ambition to give millions of people at home a great weekend of live music, which is so important after the limited experiences of the past two years.

It is fitting that on the 100th year of the BBC, our program will be the most extensive to date, with over 35 hours on BBC One, Two, Three and Four and over 40 hours on BBC iPlayer – with the channel Dedicated Glastonbury – plus digital live streams from the five biggest festival stages.

We’re broadcasting more series on BBC One than ever before, featuring Diana Ross, Olivia Rodrigo and Paul McCartney.

Celebration has begun. We’ve launched the BBC Two documentary, Glastonbury: 50 Years and Counting – charting the festival’s evolution from humble beginnings to world-famous event.

Next up is Stormzy: Road to the Pyramid Stage on BBC One – in which he reflects on his journey to that groundbreaking performance in 2019. They’re worth watching on BBC iPlayer.

We’ll be covering our mass radio networks, including Billie Eilish on Radio 1, Paul McCartney and Diana Ross on Radio 2 and Kendrick Lamar on 1Xtra and BBC Sounds – with over 60 hours of airtime since the ceremony festival .

Our team of professional presenters will guide the audience on a tour of Worthy Farm. Lauren Laverne’s Music Breakfast 6 show was streamed live from Worthy Farms on Wednesday, including opening its doors to tens of thousands of excited festival-goers, kicking off celebrations of ‘All Day Glastonbury’ ‘ of the station.

Steve Lamacq is gearing up for his Music 6 show as he secures interviews with some surprise performers over the weekend and Zoe Ball will present her Radio 2 Breakfast show live from the site on Friday morning, when I’m sure she’ll talk about her son Woody DJing at the carnival – it’s a family affair!

Our coverage will cater to all, regardless of your musical preferences. Older audiences, who witnessed first-hand the hysteria surrounding The Beatles and Diana Ross in the 1960s, or maybe a punk punk in the 1970s, still haven’t lost their love. and excitement for music. I can’t wait to hear Beyoncé’s new song this week.

The love of music is in attitude, not in age. So we are aiming to showcase as many performances from 93 different stages as possible.

In fact, 6 Music’s Matt Everitt will be visiting each of the 93 stages over the weekend – good luck to Matt! Listeners and viewers can follow BBC iPlayer and Sounds, wherever and whenever you want.

If you want to see both Little Simz on the West Holts Stage and Primal Scream on the John Peel Stage – both shown at the same time – you can.

I recommend watching one set via iPlayer on your TV and another set on iPlayer on your laptop or phone to get the most out of both worlds.

It was important to us to reflect the musical range at Glastonbury. From global stars, to great British talent that the BBC has championed (like Sam Fender and Charli XCX), electronic artists (like Four Tet), musicians from around the world (like Angélique Kidjo ), the band that emerged from the pandemic (like Wet Leg) and who will play their first Glastonbury this year, along with other brand new artists performing on the BBC Music Show stage.

As you read this, the production teams are finalizing broadcast plans, figuring out which artists can be interviewed on TV or radio, where special guests perform on stage or where Surprise gigs are on the way, to make sure we don’t miss a thing.

Some artists are happy to be interviewed before going on stage, others want to focus and protect their voices. Most artists are happy to be interviewed after they perform, often filled with adrenaline and relief that everything has gone well.

Performing at Glastonbury is a dream come true for any artist, so our production team is aware of how important a performance is to an artist and works closely with them. to realize the performance they wanted to bring to millions of people back home.

All of this would not be possible without the teams at BBC Studios – led by Executive Producer Alison Howe – and BBC Audio, as well as independent radio production companies.

It all works tirelessly, on-site and from our broadcast centres, to capture the magic and shape it for TV, radio, Sounds and iPlayer, so that millions of people can experience it. can not be ignored.

An ambitious broadcast of this scale is complicated as more than 100 hours of programming will be broadcast. The day is long and brings with it all the unpredictability of any live event.

And then there’s the weather. Clara Amfo is longing for ‘Kylie weather’, recalling her iconic performance on a beautiful sunny day in 2019, and Lauren Laverne didn’t check the weather forecast until she was about to close. furniture package. It’s important to pack for every situation!

I feel strongly that music has an endless, universal appeal and we look forward to bringing people together this weekend through a shared love of music.

In fact, none of this would have been possible without artists’ reservations by Emily and Michael – which makes recording it a dream.
