The Rolling Stones' superstar Mick Jagger has confirmed that he will be eschewing luxury hotels and 5-star service for Glastonbury, instead pitching a tent with his family during the annual music festival weekend based at Worthy Farm.

Jagger and the rest of The Stones will headline the rock bash along with Artic Monkeys and Mumford & Sons during the end of June.

The near septuagenarian front-man spoke to music magazine Q about his plans to spend the weekend camping.

"I've got nothing else to do on Glasto weekend, and I want to spend some time with my family and have a good time as well. Will I get hassled? Depends where I go. I think everyone will be pretty laid back."

Jagger stressed that he's a veteran when it comes to sleeping in the outdoors, adding: "We went camping all the time when I was a kid. Camping in France was our family holiday.

And we brought baked beans with us, as we didn't trust that fancy foreign food.

"We were so totally English."

The band, who are currently midway through a 19-date North American tour, headline the Saturday night of the giant bash in the Somerset countryside, on June 29.
