Mick Jagger: 'There was a lot of family pressure on The Rolling Stones to play Glastonbury' (Q324 preview)
Mick Jagger claims he intends to check out this year's Glastonbury festival alongside the regular punters before his band headlines on the Pyramid Stage.
The band top the bill on Saturday night (29 June), but speaking exclusively in our new issue, Q324 out now, the singer says he will be getting to Worthy Farm on Friday.
"I've got nothing else to do, and I want to spend some time with my family," he says of his Glasto pilgrimage. "Will I get hassled? Depends where I go. I think everyone will be pretty laid back."
Jagger explains that his brother Chris lives in Glastonbury "so I've had a lot of family pressure to play this show", not that he will be relying on his children to show him round the site.
"I don't need them to show me the cool places to go," he declares. "I'm sure I can find some places of my own that are much cooler."
