Rolling Stones to Finally Make Glastonbury Appearance!

While we continue to endure the winter that never seems to end, the festival season is fast approaching so grab your wellies, raincoats and wet wipes and prepare yourself for exciting Glastonbury news.

Earlier this week festival organisers released the full line up via twitter (@GlastoFest) and after much speculation, it was announced that the 2013 headliners are The Rolling Stones, Mumford & Sons and Arctic Monkeys. Fans immediately took to social media to express their excitement as this will be the first time that The Stones will play Glastonbury in their 50-year history. They are scheduled to rock the Pyramid Stage on Saturday, June 29, with Arctic Monkeys performing Friday, June 28 and Mumford & Sons set for Sunday, June 30.

The three-day performing arts festival is a must for many music fans and tickets for this year’s festival (which go on sale at the beginning of October, long before any act is announced) sold out in a record 1 hour and 42 minutes. Held at Worthy Farm in Somerset, apart from having a kick-ass line up, Glastonbury is also renowned for its rain and mud and the forecast looks good for more of the same for 2013. The Rolling Stones frontman, Mick Jagger, has already predicted he’ll be performing in a downpour, saying that “isn’t it nearly always rainy on the Sunday?” and has joked with fans that he’s got his wellies ready.
