Update 2: You can watch Seventeen's Glastonbury 2024 performance in full on BBC iPlayer! It's available along with nearly 90 other acts from the festival for a limited time. You can also watch Dua Lipa, Coldplay, Shania Twain, SZA and many more.

Update: The BBC has not chosen to make Seventeen's 2024 Glastonbury Festival set available for catch-up on iPlayer. That means that it's no longer available to view. Boooo.

K-pop sensation Seventeen have already graced the stage at Glastonbury Festival 2024!

They are the 13-piece South Korean boyband most people above the age of 25 have likely never heard of, and you can watch a recap of their live performance now! Seventeen outsold every artist in the world bar Taylor Swift last year, and unlike most K-pop acts, they write and produce their own music.

Below, we've broken down how you can watch Seventeen at Glastonbury 2024 online — Brits abroad can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.

Seventeen at Glastonbury 2024 live streams: TV schedule, dates

In many ways, they're a throwback to the golden age of boybands, their music videos, dance routines and lyrics harkening to the like of Backstreet Boys and NSYNC, albeit spiked with that distinct flare for the dramatic that's so in vogue right now.

Seventeen are essentially three groups in one: one that specializes in hip-hop, another in vocals, and another in dance. 27-year-old Woozi is the group's de facto leader, having penned the lion's share of their output.

They have an unusual origin story too, reminiscent of One Direction, only much more considered. Seventeen were groomed for superstardom by Pledis Entertainment, which live streamed the group's years-long selection and training process online, airing on and off between 2013 and 2015.

Here’s how to watch a complete recap of Seventeen at Glastonbury 2024 – live stream from anywhere, and for FREE.

If you happen to live in the U.K. then you can enjoy Seventeen's Glastonbury 2024 set and all Glastonbury act live streams for FREE.

That's because the BBC will have massive amounts of festival coverage across BBC One, Two, Four, BBC iPlayer, BBC Radio and the BBC Sounds app.

BBC iPlayer is the go-to destination for much of it, because it has a dedicated Glastonbury Channel from Friday to Sunday, showing key performances from the Pyramid Stage, interviews, highlights from past years and much more. Plus, for the second year running, the main stage iPlayer coverage will be broadcast in Ultra HD.

Not at home in the U.K. during one of the big Glastonbury sets? Don't worry — you can watch it via a VPN instead.

How to watch Seventeen at Glastonbury 2024 live streams from anywhere with a VPN

Watching Glastonbury live streams is a tradition for millions of Brits across the country, but what if you're not there when the music is being broadcast live on the BBC? 

Look no further than a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.

For instance, a Brit who's currently in the U.S. could watch this live stream of the whole day's events on BBC iPlayer (Seventeen enter at 14:48), even though they're not in the U.K., and see Seventeen play to thousands of fans on Friday. Just make sure you have a valid TV license if you're accessing the service.
