You can watch Glastonbury 2023 — including tonight's farewell performance by Elton John — without making the trek to Worthy Farm in Somerset, England. That said, we can't blame anyone going to the iconic music festival, which returns for another year of world-class music performances — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.

Glastonbury 2023 live streams: TV schedule, dates

Glastonbury 2023 will be broadcast across the BBC from Friday (June 23) until Sunday (June 25).
► FREE LIVE STREAMS —  BBC iPlayer (U.K.)
► Watch anywhere — Try ExpressVPN 100% risk free

This year’s headline acts include legendary rockers Guns N’ Roses, who performed on Saturday, and the Rocket Man himself, Elton John, who plays tonight in what is being billed as his final ever U.K. performance. It’s a trio of acts that can hardly be described as the most current, but each one is sure to delight the thousands-strong Pyramid Stage crowd, as well as the millions watching from the comfort of their own couch. 

Other artists set to appear across the weekend include Lizzo, Queens of the Stone Age, Blondie, Lewis Capaldi, Lil Nas X and The Churnups. Not heard of that last one? Fear not, your music knowledge hasn’t failed you, their inclusion on the Friday evening (June 23) lineup turned out to be the Foo Fighters. You can watch a Glasto live stream now or watch the Foo's on demand.

If you’re not heading down to the farm yourself this year, you don’t have to miss out on the Glastonbury experience because much of the festival will be broadcast on the BBC for Brits. However, we’ll also show you how to watch a Glastonbury Festival 2023 live stream from anywhere online and for free. Plus, we’ve got a full lineup of the main stages down down below to ensure you don’t miss your favorite artist’s set.

If you happen to live in the U.K. then you can enjoy Glastonbury 2023 live stream for FREE.  

That's because the BBC will have massive amounts of festival coverage across BBC One, Two, Three, Four, the <a href="https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer" data-link-merchant="bbc.co.uk"" target="_blank">BBC iPlayer, BBC Radio and the BBC Sounds app.

BBC iPlayer will be the go-to destination for much of it, because it will have 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 Glastonbury 2023 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 the Glastonbury 2023 live streams on BBC iPlayer, even though they're not in the U.K., and see Elton John headline on Sunday night. Just make sure you have a valid TV license if you're accessing the service.

We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is ExpressVPN. It's fast, works on loads of devices and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Safety, speed and simplicity combine to make <a href="https://go.expressvpn.com/c/4550836/1330033/16063?subId1=hawk-custom-tracking&sharedId=hawk&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.expressvpn.com%2Fgo%2Fbbc-iplayer-vpn" data-link-merchant="expressvpn.com"" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. It's also compatible with loads of devices and there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you want to try it out.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view a U.K. service, you'd select U.K. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to BBC iPlayer and watch all the Glastonbury action.


Can you watch Glastonbury 2023 live streams in the US, Australia or elsewhere?

Technically, Glastonbury coverage is only available in the U.K., so if you live in another country, such as the U.S. and weren't lucky enough to grab a ticket for the festival, you won't be able to tune in.

However, if you're usually based in the U.K. but aren't there at the moment, you can tune in to the Glastonbury 2023 live stream on BBC iPlayer via a VPN such as ExpressVPN.
