The Rolling Stones to headline Glastonbury Festival

The Rolling Stones have been named as one of the three headline acts for the Glastonbury Festival 2013.

It will be the first time the Rolling Stones have played at the festival at Worthy Farm, Somerset, which will draw about 135,000 people.

The other headline acts at the festival, taking place on the final weekend of June, are Mumford and Sons and the Arctic Monkeys.

The Stones will be performing on the Saturday night - the penultimate night. Mick Jagger tweeted: "Can't wait to play Glastonbury. I have my wellies and my yurt!"

Glastonbury was not held last year because of the Olympics and to allow the farmland to recover from the previous festival.

The full line-up, announced on the official website includes Primal Scream and Elvis Costello. Also appearing on the Pyramid stage is Jake Bugg and festival veteran Billy Bragg.

This year's Glastonbury is already a sell-out but there will be some re-sales next month.
