After a couple of years off due to the pandemic, the world’s most famous music festival is back in person, with headliners including Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar set to grace the stage.

As usual, the BBC is broadcasting extensive coverage of the festival from Worthy Farm.

Read on for everything you need to know about how to watch and listen to Glastonbury 2022 live on iPlayer, broadcast TV and radio.
