This year’s event, which is already a sell-out with around 135,000 tickets being sold in the space of two hours, will take place over the last weekend in June. It did not take place last year due to the Olympics and to allow farmland to recover.
Rolling Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger told fans via Twitter: “Can’t wait to play Glastonbury. I have my wellies and my yurt.”
