The legendary band’s first ever appearance at Worthy Farm looks like being worth the wait for fans, who will be able to take in a mammoth set which is due to run from 9:30pm to 11:45pm on the festival’s second night.
Arctic Monkeys and Mumford & Sons, the other two 2013 headliners, both have gigs slated to last for one-and-a-half hours.
The BBC and Glastonbury jointly unveiled plans for the most comprehensive coverage in the festival’s history recently, but it remains unclear as to how much of the Stones’ set those who are not able to attend will be treated to.
Despite round the clock, online coverage of six stages over the course of the weekend being made available, reports suggested bosses have been ‘locked in talks’ with Mick Jagger over how much of their performance can be shown.
