In what sounds like an April Fools joke, organisers have said the move comes after requests from older festival-goers for more luxuries at the Worthy Farm bash.

The Sun have quoted Melvin Benn, Glastonbury's operations director, as saying: "Older fans are getting far more demanding and we have to respond.

"That means better toilets and now washing machine facilities.”

It's believed to be a joke taken out of context.

The event is having its traditional a fallow year in 2012 but bands are already throwing their hat in the ring as Glastonbury Festival 2013 rumours.

Florence and The Machine and Kasabian have both expressed interest in playing the Pyramid Stage, while Radiohead have hinted at wanting a return following their secret show back in June.

Fans keen to go to the event in 2013 will have to register for tickets before they can buy them.
