The three-day long musical festival begins today, with live coverage form the BBC across several platforms.

Among the big names performing are Stormzy, who is the first black British solo artist to headline the Pyramid stage, while over the weekend they are also performances from Janet Jackson, Liam Gallagher, The Killers, Vampire Weekend and The Cure.

If you are looking for something a little different, the one band that I am personally most interested in seeing is Babymetal, the first Japanese band to perform on Glastonbury, on the Other Stage on Sunday. As the name implies, they are heavy metal band. They are also an all-women band, mixing metal with the Japanese pop-idol group style.

Glastonbury coverage begins at 19.30 and 21.50 on BBC Two, and at 22.00 on BBC Four. More coverage is on across the weekend on the BBC Red Button, and with five live streams on the iPlayer.
