Glastonbury 2023 came to an end late on Sunday evening with an epic, hit-strewn set for the ages from Elton John - widely believed to be his last on UK soil, but with so much going on across the Worthy Farm site, it was pretty hard to see everything the festival had to offer.

Luckily the BBC iPlayer has archived dozens of live performances that’ll be available on the streaming service until July 25, so if you were there and want to relive full sets, explore new artists or just want to have a mix of things to watch over the weeks to come, you can do just that.
