The main Friday headline act this year was set to be the Foo Fighters, but due to Dave Grohl breaking his leg during a performance in Gothenberg recently, they’ve been forced to withdraw with Florence and the Machine replacing them.

Friday: Florence and the Machine, Motorhead, Mary J Blige are the main acts on the Pyramid stage, while Rudimental and Mark Ronson can be seen on the Other Stage. Notable other performances include the Super Furry Animals and Enter Shikari straight off the back of their hit performance at Download.

Saturday: Superstars like Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Burt Bacharach and Paloma Faith will be performing on the Pyramid Stage while Spiritualized, Ben Howard, Suede, Sleaford Mods can be seen on the other stages.

Following a resale in April, tickets are completely sold out and the event organisers have warned against people buying fake tickets. You can register for 2016 tickets via the official website.

The BBC will be broadcasting 30 hours of coverage across its TV network. They’ll get started on Friday evening with Chris Evans and Alex Jones presenting the One Show live from the site starting at 7pm.

As has been the case in previous years, BBC Two will be the home of the headline acts with BBC Four taking some of the Festivals gone by.

BBC Red button coverage will give viewers access to three streams while after 9pm each day, there will be Red Button + with live action from six stages. It’ll also be on BBC Three which will focus on acts for the younger audience.
