Organisers are expanding the boundary around the Pyramid Stage

If you haven't already heard by now, the legends that are The Rolling Stones will be headlining this year's Glastonbury Festival in Somerset after year's of rumours that the band will be topping the bill on the iconic Pyramid Stage on Saturday.

And festival organisers are expecting the 'Brown Sugar' band to pull in record numbers for their set predicting that Mick Jagger and the boys could bring 200,000 die hard fans flocking to see their first ever Glasto performance.

Now even boss Michael Eavis is starting to panic fearing the band may be just too big for even Glastonbury to manage telling the Sun newspaper: “There might be a problem with the size of the crowd – so it’s slightly worrying for me.”

Fans began flocking to the Worthy Farm's fields on Wednesday as doors opened with thousands sporting comedy Mick Jagger and Keith Richards masks as they battled for the best spot to pitch their tent.

The rock'n'roll heroes will be headlining the Pyramid Stage on the Saturday night of Glastonbury 2013 while Arctic Monkeys and Mumford & Sons will be topping the bill on Friday and Sunday night respectively.

Meanwhile book makers have placed odds of 6/4 that 'Get Lucky' dance troop Daft Punk will perform a surprise set at the festival as well as Beady Eye, David Bowie and Queens Of The Stone Age also being rumoured to have secret set up their sleeves.
