Glastonbury braced for Stones debut

Anticipation is building at Glastonbury ahead of legendary rockers The Rolling Stones' debut at the festival.

Worthy Farm has become awash with Stones t-shirts and masks as tens of thousands of people prepare to watch them headline on the Pyramid Stage, and the sun has even come out for the occasion.

The viewing area has even been extended to allow for the crowds expected to be in place for the start of their set at 9.30pm, with festival organiser Michael Eavis saying he was worried the band could prove to be too popular.

Public Enemy and Chase & Status are performing on other stages at the same time - but for many of the 135,000 ticket holders, the Stones are the main draw of the entire weekend. Fans are busy guessing who the band's special guests will be - with bets placed on Bruce Springsteen and Adele - and the meaning of the giant mechanical phoenix on top of the stage.

Chris Kneller, 25, a Formula One design engineer from Maidstone, Kent, said: "It's going to be one of those classic Glastonbury moments. There's a bit of anticipation because of the massive bird on the Pyramid - there's never been anything on it before. It got pretty bad with Arctic Monkeys there last night, so I can't imagine how crowded it will get though."

Adam Robinson, a 25-year-old personal trainer from Ipswich, said: "It's probably the only time we'll ever see the Stones.

"I know the festival organisers have been trying to get hold of them for a long time, so there will be a brilliant atmosphere. I predict there will be a massive singalong."

Victoria Hamilton, 25, from Swansea, wearing a t-shirt showing the Stones in their 60s heyday, said: "I don't know how they do it at their age. I'd love it if Adele came on with them."

Sir Mick's brother also lives in Glastonbury and could well be among the audience, along with Jade and Elizabeth Jagger. Celebrities including Wayne and Colleen Rooney and Kate Moss are expected to be watching the 2hr 15min set, the first hour of which will be televised on the BBC.

Guitarist Keith Richards said this week that the band was "destined'' to make an appearance at Glastonbury, despite turning down a slot for many years, and declared: "It had to be done."
