Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis has proclaimed this year's festival the best ever "without a shadow of a doubt".

He praised the Rolling Stones for their "mind boggling" energy and said how much he had enjoyed watching their show from the side of the stage.

Eavis also revealed that His Royal Highness Prince Harry was at the festival on Saturday. He watched the Rolling Stones and stayed on site to experience the true Glastonbury atmosphere with a group of his friends until 4am.

Asked how he would top the Rolling Stones next year, Eavis said he already had his three headliners organised for Glastonbury 2014, but refused to give any hints as to who they might be.

More than just the music at Glastonbury

Glastonbury 2013 is well and truly up and running, with the Arctic Monkeys taking to the Pyramid Stage last night.

Tonight it's the Rolling Stones turn to play on the Somerset farm - the first time in their long, long career.

But of course it's not just about the music, the festival has many other things to offer as our reporter Bob Cruwys has been finding out.
