BBC had your back if you were unable to attend Glastonbury this weekend, live streaming Pyramid, Other, West Holts, John Peel and Park stages across a total of five streams.

BMTH played the Other stage today alongside Billie Eilish, Slaves, BABYMETAL and more.

Unfortunately, Bring Me The Horizon did not participate in BBC’s live stream as part of a “band decision.”

Sykes took to Twitter after the band’s set to explain why the stream didn’t happen.

“In regards to not streaming our set today, it was 100% the bands decision We sincerely apologise to our fans that was looking forward to seeing the stream & to @BBC for letting them down after all the support they show us, but we felt we had our reasons ..with our lead guitarist out atm & having a tech stepping up and doing as much as he can at such short notice we felt [insecure] about the pressure we are putting on him .. not to mention I’m just [a] god awful singer and I can’t scream for shit Anymore [ya] know, etc etc . Sorry to everyone we [disappointed]!

Despite this I thought the show was amazing so thank you to everyone who attended!”


According to fans, Lee is currently out due to him and his wife having a baby.

Congrats Lee!
