The Rolling Stones will not perform at Glastonbury.

A spokesperson for the 'Satisfaction' hitmakers - made up of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts - has confirmed the band will not perform at the iconic music festival this summer.

They said: "Following recent UK media speculation, The Rolling Stones would like to make it clear there are no plans at the moment for the band to tour in 2010."

Meanwhile, Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis has confirmed legendary rockers U2 and British rapper Dizzee Rascal will both be performing at the event.

She told BBC 6 Music: "We've gotta have Dizzee, I think that's a given. We are working on it full-time, and we're trying to get our third headliner at the moment, which is quite exciting."

Emily also revealed 'Leave Right Now' hitmaker Will Young is being considered for the weekend event, but admitted 'Minority' singers Green Day would not be taking part.

She concluded: "A lot of bands really want to play because we've only got three nights to headline, I think a lot of people are going to be doing secret sets."

Glastonbury will be held between June 23 and June 27 in Somerset, South West England.
