Mick Jagger has told his Twitter followers he "can't wait to play Glastonbury", as the band have been announced they will be headlining this year's festival.

A yurt is a circular, Mongolian-style tent covered with felt or skins - not the kind most revellers will be sleeping in at Glastonbury.

It will be the first time the band will play at Worthy Farm, headlining on the Pyramid Stage on Saturday 29th June.

Rumours around the band's performance have been circulating since last year, when it emerged they were getting together for a series of 50th anniversary shows.

Other headliners include The Arctic Monkeys and Mumford and Sons.

Taking place on the final weekend of June, the festival is returning after a year's break for the 2012 Olympics.

Already a sell-out, 135,000 tickets went in the space of less than two hours for the festival.

There will however be some resales next month.
