Glastonbury festival has announced it'll be offering official off-site camping for the first time in its history.

Pre-erected off-site camping facilities, called Worthy View, will be available to at least 4,000 festival-goers, in addition to the onsite tipi and main camping areas.

According to a statement on the festival's official website, Worthy View is situated just a short walk from the Stone Circle and will offer a variety of tent options, including a "modern twist" on the traditional scout tent, bell tents, tipis and two person Yurts. Prices start at £100 per person for five nights.

Glastonbury festival boss, Michael Eavis, said: "It's really important to me that we offer people the best value accommodation. We don’t want Festival-goers paying through the nose, so we've decided to offer some cracking off-site camping ourselves, very close to the main site."

He continued: "With tents for 5 nights available for only £100 per person, and even the hand-crafted yurts for £150 per person, there is no reason to pay more elsewhere."

Keith Richards recently told NME that he'd love The Rolling Stones to play Glastonbury. "Anything's possible, that's all I can say about it. But if it could happen, I'd love to," he said.

Stevie Nicks has also told NME that she would "love to" headline Glastonbury when Fleetwood Mac come to the UK for their 2013 reunion tour.
