Michael Eavis has revealed that he has already booked next year's Glastonbury headliners.

The music festival's longtime organiser confirmed to NME that three acts have been booked, but that he would only announce them once tickets are on sale.

Eavis explained that choosing headliners was a difficult task as "there aren't many left... There were maybe a dozen headliner potentials so we're running out of headliners but we got the last three for next year."

When asked if any of the three headliners will be veterans to rival The Rolling Stones, he said: "Ever so slightly, yeah."

The Rolling Stones headlined the Pyramid Stage last night (June 29), performing a number of classic hits and other tracks from their back catalogue.

Speaking about their performance, Eavis added: "The Stones were the best thing - it had to be, didn't it, 43 years of me, 50 years of them, we finally come together and we're on the same page at last.

"Mick Jagger's energy, leading that band with such a passion and so much skill was absolutely amazing. Seeing him moving, I've never seen anything like it. I'm quite a bit older but I couldn't go like that - and I can keep going, but not at that pace!"

Glastonbury 2013 will come to an end tonight (June 30) with performances from The xx and Mumford and Sons among others.
