U.K. fest returns this June with Mumford & Sons, the Smashing Pumpkins and many, many more.
One of the world's most prestigious music festivals, the U.K.'s Glastonbury Festival, has been sold out for quite some time, but finally has an official 2013 lineup.
Confirming previous rumors , the Rolling Stones will be on hand for a rare festival presence, although they've oddly received second billing to the Arctic Monkeys on the Pyramid Stage on the official lineup poster .
Taking place near the Somerset village of Pilton, Glastonbury will run from June 28 to June 30. Other big names include Mumford & Sons, Elvis Costello, the Smashing Pumpkins, the Lumineers, Azealia Banks, Phoenix, and Vampire Weekend. For a complete lineup, click here . According to the fest's official site, additional "acts, stages, and attractions" will be announced in the future.
The legendary festival, which first ran in 1970, is often cited as a model for the modern music festivals of today. Prior to taking last year off due to the 2012 Olympic Games in London, the festival last ran in 2011, with U2, Coldplay, and Beyoncé headlining.
