The Rolling Stones have been named as one of the three headline acts for the Glastonbury Festival 2013.
It will be the first time the Rolling Stones have played at the festival at Worthy Farm in Somerset, which will draw about 135,000 people.
The other headline acts at the festival, taking place on the final weekend of June, are Mumford and Sons and the Arctic Monkeys.
The Stones will be performing on the Saturday night.
Mick Jagger tweeted: "Can't wait to play Glastonbury. I have my wellies and my yurt!"
Glastonbury was not held last year because of the Olympics and to allow the farmland to recover from the previous festival.
The full line-up, announced on the official website includes Primal Scream, Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds and Elvis Costello, with chart acts such as Professor Green and Dizzee Rascal also appearing.
Surprises include country star Kenny Rogers, who is among the figures playing the main Pyramid Stage.
