(AP) The Glastonbury Festival is wrapping up, with many fans still on a high from the Rolling Stones' first-ever gig at Britain's leading music extravaganza.


Festival founder Michael Eavis declared the concert "the high spot of 43 years of Glastonbury."


The Stones played for more than two hours Saturday, giving fans a clutch of hits, from opener "Jumpin' Jack Flash" through to encores of "You Can't Always Get What You Want" and "Satisfaction."


Organizers estimate 100,000 people watched the show, including celebrity music fans Prince Harry and Kate Moss.


The gig was a coup for the festival, although there were grumbles from TV viewers because the Stones agreed to let the BBC air only an hour of its set.


The festival ends Sunday with a performance by Mumford & Sons.
