They've said they're going to show a version of the Worthy Farm thing as part of their coverage, so there'll be something on.

It clashes with Euro 2020, so there's less hours need filling.

An edited down version of L@WF to a couple of hours sounds perfect.

Good - means I can grab it then with get_iplayer.

Not all of us will be wanting to watch that!

 

Hope there's loads of Glastonbury sets/programmes on the Iplayer this year.  And ideally not all exactly the same as last years.

This story gave a bit more detail:

There's also going to be some behind-the-scenes documentary about Live at Worthy Farm.

They put a load of past big weekend sets up alongside the new stuff this year so expecting similar. 

Who even owns the copyright to the iPlayer sets? Worthy farm, the artist, BBC? Some weird conglomeration of the three?

Think it's a mixture. As the broadcaster the BBC will own the rights, but artists can refuse to have their sets broadcasted or demand them only part broadcasted.

As far as I remember, it's complicated but broadly speaking -

GFL have the copyright to raw on-stage footage - at least from 1994 onwards, not sure about before that.

The BBC and GFL jointly own the copyright to the programmes as broadcast (or C4 and GFL for the 94-95 festivals)

The artists (or in some cases whoever they've signed away their rights to) have various other rights, and would have a veto on any footage being used beyond the scope of the original agreement.

It was a shame when the archive sets were broadcast last year that most of them seemed to be from the last decade or so, was hardly anything from the 90s/early 00s.

Someone (one of the BBC team I think) basically said that part of the selection process was down to what was easily available, especially when considering the COVID restrictions in place while they were putting it together - specifically that they've got more footage from recent years ready to go in their digital archives that can be processed and edited by people working from home.

Whereas most of the older footage is still on tape that someone would need to physically retrieve and then convert - most of the older sets we did see are obvious exceptions - the Bowie set had been recently remastered and released, so would have been transferred to Digital at that point. Likewise the REM 99 and Pulp 1995 sets have been shown elsewhere recently.

Hopefully with more time to prepare, and fewer restrictions in place, it should be possible to go back a bit deeper this time.

Lauren Laverne talking to Jo Whiley about this now on 6music

Pretty sure Jo said they were broadcasting the entire livestream (hadn't we previously been told it was only highlights?).

 

50 sets on iPlayer, 30 sets on BBC Sounds,Jo's behind the scenes documentary & she's also doing a nineties highlights show. Somebody was doing a noughties highlight show (Clara Amfo?) & Lauren is curating a legends highlights show. That was the main things I took from it.

Yep that's what I heard too but the press release/coverage seems to say something different

Thanks for the info 🙂 Hopefully like you say this time round we will get more of a selection.

I still wish they would just make every year’s highlights show available to watch on the iPlayer.

I like full sets but would much prefer a curated guide to each year.

I also feel like they are sitting on a gold mine with this.

Either the BBC or GFL themselves could create 2 hour highlight packages going right back to the early 1990s I'm sure.  

I tried watching some a few weeks ago and only 2019 was on iPlayer

Happy memories of getting back from the fest and watching the weekend's highlights on VHS with a curry.

Full sets are great and all, but I often lose interest quickly. Gig footage isn't the biggest feast for the eyes usually and it's easy to drift off, it's often like watching a screensaver with music. Unless it's something I really like I often wander off in terms of attention, which is why I love the highlights show every year. One track per artist, gives a better overall flavour of the festival rather than just who was headlining.

That said I'll probably just dip in and out of the coverage this year. Doesn't sound like there's much I haven't already seen, plus the football will be on and I don't really feel the same need to watch everything this year like I did last year.

Last year I missed it much more keenly, this year feels like just another fallow year.
