The livestream will cover the following hours:

And if you're not free over the weekend, you can catch up on demand after the festival - you will be able to watch full sets from all the artists, must-watch tracks from each performance and a special highlights show featuring all the biggest moments. Available now, you can watch a very special 30-minute interview with Kylie Minogue, hosted by Scott Mills.
