Libertines Reunite To Headline Summer Festival

Pete Doherty and Carl Barat are to reform The Libertines to play a major London festival.

The four-piece will perform in Hyde Park on July 5 at an event called Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time.

The band split in 2004 amid problems caused by Doherty's drug use and tensions between him and Barat. The pair's fractious relationship became the subject of one of their biggest hits, Can't Stand Me Now.

They last came back together in 2010 for the Reading and Leeds festivals.

Doherty became a tabloid regular during his time in the band because of run-ins with the law and his relationship with model Kate Moss.

The Libertines will be supported at the Hyde Park gig by The Pogues, Spiritualized, Maximo Park and The Enemy. Other acts playing there over the summer include Black Sabbath and Neil Young.

Also rumoured to be putting aside their differences to reform this summer are Oasis, after singer Liam Gallagher tweeted the band's name letter by letter.
