The Rolling Stones to Play for Two Hours at Glastonbury


The U.K.’s famed Glastonbury Festival is set to take place this upcoming weekend with acts such as Elvis Castillo, Rufus Wainwright, Vampire Weekend and many more.

Today, the list of set times have made their way on the internet and the biggest surprise is the fact that the band that has garnered the most attention, The Rolling Stones, would be performing a two-hour plus set while other acts such as Mumford & Sons and the Arctic Monkeys would perform for an hour and a half.

The Rolling Stones’ set time has been revealed to start at 9:30 p.m. and go on until 11:45 on Saturday. To check out the full set time for all the performers that will be at the three-day-long festival, you can click here and head on over to Glastonbury Festival’s website.

Not only is this the first time that The Rolling Stone will be hitting the Pyramid Stage (the main stage for those of you who aren’t familiar), this is also the first time that the festival will be live-streaming the entire event. Viewers from around the world will be able to see performers from all of the stage through some new technology which allows fans to choose from simultaneous live streams. In total, the BBC is reporting that they will have over 250 hours of concert footage.
