If you're not headed out to Glastonbury 2019 there's no need to panic, we've got you covered.

Glastonbury Festival 2019 kickstarted on Wednesday, 26th June and if you're reading this you're likely to be feeling a bit sorry for yourself. 

Sure, you can sit there and mourn the day you decided against scouring the Earth for tickets; perhaps booking a beach break was less daunting at the time. On the other hand, you can tune in from the comfort of your own home and join the party that way. 

The weather's holding up so far, but who knows, you could be laughing from your sofa at the sea of raincoats barely withstanding the downpour over the weekend. So, here's how to catch your favourites across the iconic weekend...

Festival goers enoy the sunshine attends as they attend on day 4 of the Glastonbury Festival 2017 at Worthy Farm, Pilton on June 25, 2017 in Glastonbury, England.

Friday, 28th June

For you Tame Impala fans, you can catch the Australian indie outfit on BBC Four at 22:00. 

However, the big set on Friday definitely comes from British rap artist, Stormzy. There has been a lot of uncertainty regarding his monumental headline performance, so tuning into BBC Two at 21:50 is a must. 

After that, there's plenty more to come. 

Saturday, 29th June

Janet Jackson debuts on The Pyramid Stage - the main stage - at 19:30 on BBC Two; a perfect warm-up to the big event. 

On the same channel at 21:00, viewers will be treated to a headline set from The Killers, with highlights from Liam Gallagher and Mark Ronson. 

The Killers are regarded by many as one of the most satisfying live bands working today - with an abundance of hits under their belts, there's no confusion as to why. 


Over on BBC Four, sets from Johnny Marr and Carrie Underwood will air from 19:00 up until 20:00, which will then offer sets from Neneh Cherry and a surprise guest. 

At 21:00, there's another chance to check out Liam Gallagher, but also The Courteeners. Then, at 22:00, there will be highlights from Wu-Tang Clan and The Chemical Brothers.

Sunday, 30th June

BBC One is getting in on the excitement at 18:00 thanks to a very special guest. If you tune in, you can catch Kylie Minogue's highly anticipated slot on The Pyramid Stage. 

BBC Two resumes coverage at 21:00 with - arguably - the most promising set of the festival. That's right, you can marvel as The Cure take to the main stage for a prestigious headline slot to conclude the festival. They will also be showing highlights from the immensely popular Billie Eilish.  

BBC Four is also set to highlights a range of terrific acts. From 20:00, they'll be offering coverage of the aforementioned Billie Eilish and also The Good, The Bad & The Queen. At 21:00, there's a chance to catch festival favourites Vampire Weekend, as well as jazz sensation Kamasi Washington; you won't want to miss that!

Then, concluding their Sunday coverage at 22:00, you can tune in and watch Janelle Monae and Christine and the Queens. 

There's always iPlayer!

Chances are you won't be able to catch all of the sets you want to see as they air. 

Not to worry though, as there will be over one-hundred sets across the weekend available to view on BBC iPlayer at your convenience.

You don't have to be there to enjoy Glastonbury 2019!
