Arctic Monkeys, The Rolling Stones and Mumford & Sons have been confirmed as headliners of this year's Glastonbury festival.

A post on the official Glastonbury festivals website appeared at 7pm today confirming the news. Of the Rolling Stones' slot, frontman Mick Jagger tweeted:



The much-desired Stones headline appearance was one of the worst-kept secrets in music. Speaking to MTV News earlier this month, Serge Pizzorno – who headlines Hard Rock Calling in London the same weekend with Kasabian – said "I hope ours is the most talked about performance of the weekend, but that would be a miracle because The Rolling Stones are playing Glastonbury."

Before that, various members of the band hinted they would be playing. Speaking to NME, frontman Mick Jagger teasingly asked what the weather would be like at the famously element-beaten bash.

"There are other things in the world, you know, apart from Glastonbury," he said. "But then again, Glastonbury is very important. It seems to be very important to my children – highlight of their year!"

This year's Glastonbury festival is to be live streamed for the first time with viewers able to watch different stages as they happen. The BBC will use the latest digital technology to allow viewers to choose from simultaneous live streams from all the major stages.
