Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger is taking glamping to a whole new level at this year's Glastonbury Festival - he's hired himself a luxury yurt that comes with satisfaction guaranteed!
Glastonbury Festival is synonymous with mud, mess, portable toilets… oh, and music of course.
But while most of us are contemplating a few nights under a damp piece of canvas, Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger is set to see out the festival in style (well, let’s face it, wild horses wouldn’t get Mick to slum it in a tent).
Ahead of the band’s appearance on the Pyramid Stage at Glasto this weekend, the Gimme Shelter star has decided to live it up onsite in a luxury yurt, complete with all mod cons, electricity and proper furniture.
Who was it who said ‘You can’t always get what you want’? Well, Mick
proves you can… if you pay for it. His private yurt costs more than £3,000 a night!
69-year-old won’t be wading through mud or running for shelter beneath
the expected doom and gloom between performances either, as he’s also got a chauffeur-driven golf buggy to get him from A to B.
The luxury tents are hired out by sshh, a company that specialises in erecting yurts for festivals, weddings and other events.
‘While I can’t
reveal the identities of other celebrities staying in our yurts, what I
can say is that he’ll be in good company and will have lots of fun I’m
sure,’ said Josephine Beavitt, Director of sshh. We bet he will!
Featuring boutique chandeliers and large dressing mirrors, the yurts come with all the essentials that any OAP would want – including power points for charging tablets and laptops, a huge kingsize bed, antique furniture and wooden flooring. Luxury showers and toilets are erected nearby.
Mick’s yurt is said to be 20-feet taller than the more conventional yurts usually
found at Glastonbury.
And should he get a bit peckish, he’ll be able to get satisfaction from an
independent restaurant located nearby.
So while we all get to grips with the dismal weather and the general dirt and grime, spare a thought for old Mick who will be well and truly glamping it up!
