Stones to headline Glastonbury

The Rolling Stones will be taking to the stage again this summer at one of Britain's leading music festivals.

Their appearance at the 2013 Glastonbury Festival – set to take place from June 28 to June 30 – was revealed yesterday in a line-up posted on its website.

The Stones recently held a series of concerts to celebrate their 50th year together and there have been rumours of more activity. Before those shows, the Rolling Stones hadn't performed in concert together since 2007.

They confirmed their June 29 Glastonbury appearance in a post on their website, with Mick Jagger taking to Twitter to say he "can't wait" to play Glastonbury.

Grammy-winning group Mumford & Sons, Elvis Costello and the Arctic Monkeys are also on the line-up for the festival, for which around 135,000 tickets sold out in less than two hours.

Other acts include Portishead, Rufus Wainwright, the Smashing Pumpkins and the Lumineers.
