By
The Rolling Stones and the BBC have reached a compromise over Glastonbury broadcast rights.

The veteran rock band had refused the corporation permission to broadcast their entire Pyramid Stage headlining show last month.

However, a deal has now been reached in which an hour of the band's two-hour-and-15-minute-long set will be aired, according to The Independent.

Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis told the paper: "I think they're all friends now. They're going to be playing for about an hour for the TV.

"I think Mick Jagger wanted to play to the people here, rather than a TV show."

Glastonbury takes place between June 28 and 30 at Worthy Farm in Somerset, with extensive coverage on the BBC. Arctic Monkeys and Mumford & Sons have also been booked to headline the Pyramid Stage.
