Live at Worthy Farm: follow along with Glastonbury’s livestreamed festival

Last modified: 06: 57 PM GMT+0

With a lineup including Coldplay, Michael Kiwanuka, Haim and Wolf Alice, Glastonbury’s livestreamed show is the next best thing to being there. Follow along here as it airs online

Given that at this point, we won’t all be able to time things to watch all together at the same time, we’re going to draw a veil over this liveblog, likely the briefest and certainly the saddest in Guardian history! Hey, at least it’s a Glastonbury washout where you can stay dry and order takeaway.

Glastonbury organisers have said they’re going to keep us updated on what has gone wrong, but I think it’s probably worth making plans for a Eurovision party instead.

Hi everyone, we're sorry to hear you're having issues accessing the stream. Please keep trying and you should be able to access soon. The stream is rolling but you can rewind to the start as soon as you get in so you won't miss anything. @glastonbury #LiveAtWorthyFarm

This will rather dampen the “let’s all watch it together” thing we had planned, of course.

Wouldn’t be a Glastonbury festival experience without hitting refresh on a website for an hour 🙃

Looks like there’s been a bit of a technical hitch – we can’t watch it and judging by the discussion on Twitter, neither can any of you. We’ll sit tight for now and start the liveblog up if and when the issues get sorted.

Welcome to live at Worthy Farm!

If you’ve ever been, watching Glastonbury at home always feels poignant – but never so much as this year, after the festival was cancelled for a second year in a row.

But luckily there’s Live at Worthy Farm to make up for it: a livestreamed concert filmed on site during this week, featuring performances from Coldplay, Haim, Damon Albarn and many more. You can buy a ticket to it here – and follow along with our liveblog as we watch it together.
