Jagger plans family fun at Glasto

Mick Jagger is getting ready to enjoy Glastonbury with his kids

Sir Mick Jagger has revealed that he is planning to make a weekend of it when he headlines Glastonbury with The Rolling Stones and will hang out with his children.

Rather than heading down simply to play his slot at the event, the veteran star said he was aiming to hang out and have a "good time".

In an interview with Q magazine about the forthcoming appearance, he said: "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."

He said that his daughter Jade and Elizabeth "will bring these yurts" to the festival next month.

Sir Mick, 69, went on: "I don't need them to show me the cool places to go. I'm sure I can find some places of my own that are much cooler."

And asked whether he expected to be hassled, he said: "Depends where I go. I think everyone will be pretty laid back."

The frontman said he was no stranger to camping and had been with his own children despite earning millions - although the weather was a little less unpredictable than the UK.

He said he had been "on the beach with my kids in the Caribbean, but it's just the same as Brighton - there's just less chance of bad weather".

Sir Mick told the magazine, due out later this month: "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."
