THE Rolling Stones will play for over two hours during their Glastonbury Festival headline set, it has been confirmed.

The revelation is contained within the release of all of this year’s stage times at the Glastonbury website.

The rock and roll veterans, who will be making their Glastonbury debut, will play from 9.30pm to 11.45pm – a total of two hours and 15 minutes.

Fellow headliners Arctic Monkeys and Mumford and Sons will both perform for 90 minutes each on the Friday and Sunday nights respectively.

This year’s 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. Over 250 hours of footage will be broadcast across the weekend.
