Coldplay and Glastonbury go together like Oasis and Knebworth. Band and event in perfect harmony. They return in 2024 as headliners for a record fifth time but pause to tell the BBC all about their memories of the festival to date in this one-off show.

Below we have all the information on how to watch "Coldplay: Our Glastonbury" from anywhere with a VPN and potentially for free.

After headlining Glastonbury in 2002 and 2005, Chris Martin is reported to have said in 2007, "Glastonbury is bored of us. I don’t think we can even take a harmonica down there for a good 15 years.” He was wrong. They returned to headline again in 2011 and 2016 and do so again on Saturday, June 29.

Before then, however, Chris (with snippets of archive interviews from the other band members Jonny Buckland, Phil Harvey, Will Champion and Guy Berryman) has sat down to talk through the band's many adventures at Worthy Farm – possibly including the time he made a cameo appearance in 2019 during Kylie Minogue's set – for BBC show "Coldplay: Our Glastonbury".

If any band can legitimately claim to own Glastonbury, it is the festival's de facto house band, so read on for our guide to where to watch "Coldplay: Our Glastonbury" online and from anywhere in the world.
