The BBC has updated its free iPlayer Radio app adding access to its extensive coverage of the United Kingdom's popular Glastonbury Festival, which is scheduled for June 26-30, 2013. In the app's release notes, the BBC explains:
It’s summer festival time! This update adds access to the BBC’s extensive Glastonbury coverage, which will include live video streams throughout the event, as well as live performance video clips, photos, line up, artist information and more.Described by the BBC as the "most digital Glastonbury ever," this year's festival will be the first time a live-stream of the event is published. Main stage acts include The Rolling Stones, Elvis Costello, and Vampire Weekend (the latter being fresh from WWDC 2013), and acts from six of the festival's many stages will have their performances broadcasted online. This update to BBC iPlayer Radio comes just a couple of days after the BBC launched its own official BBC Weather app for the iPhone and iPod touch. With the application, users can access Met Office-powered weather reports on their iDevice while on the go, and can view detailed information on UV and pollen levels. BBC iPlayer Radio is currently available to download in the United Kingdom's App Store free of charge, and is optimized for the iPhone and iPod touch.
