Pop festival of the week: Glastonbury Festival, Worthy Farm, Pilton
Friday 21 June 2013
If something special was required from Glasto after its break in 2012, it arrives in the shape of the Rolling Stones, dropping off at Worthy Farm on their 50 and Counting anniversary jaunt.
Younger draws who'll try to keep pace include Portishead, Arctic Monkeys and Dizzee Rascal on Friday; Primal Scream on Saturday, warming up the stage for Mick'n'Keef with songs that sound a bit like, erm, the Stones; and, on Sunday, man-in-black Nick Cave preceding men-in-bumpkin-drag Mumford & Sons.
Off-main-stage action is – as ever – copious, including the xx, Savages, Fuck Buttons, Django Django and those self-styled "Rolling Stones of the rap game", Public Enemy.
