It has been estimated that more than 250 hours of live footage will be broadcast by the BBC, thanks to one live feed for each of the six main stages plus a seventh roaming camera.

How to watch Glastonbury 2013 live coverage

As we've mentioned there will be six live streams for each of the main stages at Glastonbury this year, plus that roaming camera if you fancy seeing what's going on from the ground.

However, the spanner in the works is that only Virgin Media TiVo customers can access those streams though a TV with the Connected Red Button.

Other customers, we're talking to all of you out there with Sky, Freeview, Freesat and YouView, can still get live coverage on the Red Button but there will only be two live feeds.

The simplest way to get live coverage is to head to bbc.co.uk/glastonbury to watch live coverage and get other content such as highlights from previous years. You can do this on pretty much any device with an internet connection and a web browser.

You can also get the BBC iPlayer Radio app for both iOS and Android smartphones and tablets to listen to coverage.   

Furthermore, EE customers can get the BBC's live streams via the Glastonbury Festival 2013 app which available for iOS and Android.
