Summer festivals coming to your TV

12 April 2006

If you've agonisingly missed out on tickets to some of this summer's sold-out major festivals, take a small slice of solice in the fact that most are set to be televised, including Reading and Leeds on the BBC...

The Reading and Leeds Festivals, headlined by Franz Ferdinand, Muse and Pearl Jam, are to be screened live on the digital channel BBC Three for the first time ever.

The channel usually televises Glastonbury, but with no festival this year while Worthy Farm is rested, channel bosses have opted for the Carling Weekend.   

It will also show highlights from BBC Radio 1's One Big Weekend in Dundee in May, as well as July's T In The Park in Scotland on 8-9 July, which boasts Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Who as its headliners. 

Controller Julian Bellamy said the new coverage "signals BBC Three's intention to have more live music events of real scale on the channel". The channel claims the coverage will have a "major interactive and online element".

V Festival, which includes headliners Radiohead, Faithless and Morissey, will once again be shown live on E4 on 19-20 August. The digital channel will also cover Download and the Isle of Wight Festival.
 
It is believed that Channel 4 will be filming at Bestival again, although nothing has been confirmed.
