The BBC reveals first details of Glastonbury 2022 coverage

The BBC has announced details of their coverage of Glastonbury festival, which is set to take place later this month. 

Only last month it was revealed that the broadcaster will be showing sets live from the Somerset festival’s Pyramid Stage in Ultra High Definition for the first time ever. Following this news, a full schedule for the week leading up to the festival and its opening Friday night (June 18-24th) has been released by the broadcaster, with extensive coverage across both their radio and television platforms. 

The presenters for the festival are a cast of familiar faces, including Lauren Laverne, Jo Wiley, Clara Amfo, Jack Saunders and Huw Stephens. Added to this, the bumper pre-festival schedule will contain the broadcast of Glastonbury: 50 Years & Counting, which has been described as a “kaleidoscopic portrait of Glastonbury and its social and musical history is given through the testimony of its principal curators, Michael and Emily Eavis, as well as artists who have appeared there”.

The programme, which details a rich history of the festival, features some of our favourite musicians, including Dua Lipa, Ed O’ Brien, Fatboy Slim, Florence Welch, Johnny Marr, Orbital, Noel Gallagher, Thom Yorke and Stormzy. On Monday, June 20th, Stormzy: Road to the Pyramid Stage will also air on BBC One, a documentary “in which Stormzy reflects on the journey that led him to that iconic performance in 2019 at the festival”.

Further details of the broadcast schedule for the Saturday and Sunday of Glastonbury are to be released very soon. See the full schedule for BBC’s Glastonbury coverage from June 18-24th below.
