Free Catch Up Choice
Glastonbury BBC iPlayer
You can still watch the best sets on iPlayer, and not get as muddy as I did. If you’re looking to discover a new act, my faves you might not have heard of from the weekend were Courtney Barnett and Jagwar Ma. For big name acts, you can’t go wrong with the Manic Street Preachers and Haim. It’s a shame they didn’t film the Mexican mariachi band that does covers. They were moy bueno.
