The Libertines confirmed for Hyde Park show

Indie band reform for their largest ever UK show

Photographer: Sara BowreyVirtual Festivals on 25 April 2014

The show will mark the first live performance for The Boys In The Band since reforming for Reading & Leeds Festivals in 2010. Chief-songwriters, Pete Doherty and Carl Barat will be trying to recapture the spirit of their era-defining debut album ‘Up The Bracket’, released in 2002. Their second LP in 2004, ‘The Libertines’ went straight to number one and catapulted them into the mainstream.

After a widely publicised period of infighting and various addictions, the band broke up in 2004 and has only reformed the once, to play the Reading & Leeds Festivals 2010.

Many high profile promoters have wanted to book The Libertines over the years, including Isle of Wight's John Giddings, talking to Virtual Festivals in 2010, and Michael Eavis back in 2011.

Preceding The Libertines on 'The Great Oak Stage' will be The Pogues, London’s Irish punk-folk icons.

British space-gazing stars Spiritualized and Geordie lads Maximo Park will also be appearing on the Hyde Park bill set for Saturday July 5.

Other artists confirmed for the date include: Swim Deep, Wolf Alice, The Enemy, Reverend and The Makers, I am Kloot, The View, Darlia, The Rifles, Cuckoolander, Brownbear, Raglans and The Twang.
