The Libertines will reunite for a live show at Hyde Park in London this July.

The band will headline the British Summer Time festival on July 5 on a bill that also includes The Pogues, Spiritualized, Maximo Park and The Enemy.

The Libertines last played live together in 2010 at the Reading and Leeds Festivals.
