The Glastonbury Experience Live, 8.30pm, BBC Two
I’d rather lose a lung than attend a music festival, but I always look forward to watching Glasto from the safety of my sofa. Not this year though.
In its place, Jo Whiley and Mark Radcliffe celebrate the weekend that would have marked 50 years of the Glastonbury Festival with a blend of performances from the archives and live acoustic sets from contemporary artists.
Included in the mix are previously unseen or rarely shown moments, including highlights from the Rolling Stones' headline set in 2013, PJ Harvey's rocking performance in 2004, and Lizzo in an early acoustic performance in the BBC garden area.
Also: Florence + the Machine's debut on one of the main stages in 2010, Oasis on the NME Stage in 1994 plus Stormzy's headline set from last year.
There’s something there for everyone. Well, almost.
Beyoncé at Glastonbury 2011, 10.00pm, BBC Two
One of the great performers, here are highlights of the Texas-born singer's headline set on the Pyramid Stage, which brought that year's festival to a close.
Beyoncé's set spanned both her solo career and her time in Destiny's Child, incorporating snippets of covers from Eurythmics, Kings of Leon and Prince, with hits including Crazy in Love, Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It), If I Were a Boy and Best Thing I Never Had.
Later there’s Best of Glastonbury (11.30pm, BBC Two), Memorable performances from Worthy Farm in Somerset, where artists including Stormzy, George Ezra, Bastille, Sheryl Crow, the Killers, Liam Gallagher, Janet Jackson, the Proclaimers, Kylie Minogue and Miley Cyrus entertained the enthusiastic crowds across the three days of the festival.
Jay Z at Glastonbury 2008, 11.30pm, BBC Four
Over on BBC Four, much of the night is also dedicated to Glasto, with this a serious highlight - rapper Jay-Z's legendary performance from the Pyramid Stage.
Opening with a tongue-in-cheek performance of Wonderwall - following criticism of his booking by Noel Gallagher - he tore the house down with a set packed full of his best-loved hits, included 99 Problems and Show Me What You Got.
Also tonight on BBC Four, there’s Elbow at Glastonbury (9.00pm), Arthur Lee & Love: Forever Changes at Glastonbury 2003 (10.00pm), and Glastonbury Backstage Acoustics (11.00pm).
Just get the beers in, order a takeaway, and be thankful you’re not ankle-deep in mud.
