Rolling Stones to headline this years Glastonbury

This years headline act for Glastonbury is none other than the Rolling Stones. It was confirmed by Mick Jagger as he tweeted yesterday 'Can't wait to play Glastonbury. I have my wellies and my yurt!'

This will be the bands first time playing at Worthy Farm and joining them will be Mumford & Sons and The Arctic Monkeys.

Emily Eavis, Glastonbury organiser when asked about the Rolling Stones headlining said "We've tried or talked about getting the Rolling Stones to play Glastonbury throughout my entire life - I can't remember a year it hasn't been wished upon."

The three-day festival commencing from the 28th of June till the 30th is expected to be attended by 135,000 people this year. The event was cancelled last year due to the Olympics but is coming back with full force this year.

The full line-up includes The XX, Mercury Prize winners Alt-J, Dizzee Rascal and more! Check out the rest of the line-up below.
