On what was supposed to be Glastonbury Festival's 50th birthday, this weekend BBC Sounds is bringing the festival to homes - virtually. To point people towards the 'Glastonbury Experience' hub, BBC Creative has produced a film that nostalgically brings together the best moments over the years from the world's most iconic festival.

With a heavy heart, on 18 March, Glastonbury Festival put out a statement to say this year's 50th anniversary would not take place this year - due to safety concerns concerning the coronavirus outbreak. Planned attendees erupted in sadness from the news, while some who failed to get their hands on the coveted (famously hard to get) tickets were delighted.

Despite this, the organisers felt the show must go on - for those with or without tickets to the 2020 edition. The 'Glastonbury Experience' is a take place over the five days when the event was due to go ahead, with archived footage filling the slots where real acts would have played, across BBC Player, BBC Sounds and on BBC TV channels.

To mark the occasion, BBC's in-house creative team pulled together a montage using entirely fan footage to time-hop between years from the perspective of those that attend it. It is narrated by Radio 1 DJ Amfo.
