Mick Jagger is planning to make the most of the Glastonbury Festival next month (Jun13) by camping out following the Rolling Stones' debut there. The rocker has revealed he'll be soaking up the atmosphere at the tent city long after he leaves the stage - he's hoping to stage a family picnic and have a "good time". He tells Q magazine, "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." His daughter Jade is planning to set up "yurts" at the festival and Jagger is hoping to do a little exploring: "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." The rocker insists he's not a stranger to camping and he has often set up a tent "on the beach with my kids in the Caribbean," adding, "It's just the same as Brighton - there's just less chance of bad weather." He adds, "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."
