The Libertines reunite for London Hyde Park show in July

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.

Rumours about a potential reunion emerged over the weekend after Pete Doherty gave an interview in which he claimed he had been approached with an offer to reunite the band for a live show.

Carl Barât subsequently revealed that the chances of the band reuniting "very much a possibility" and, when pushed for a date on which any live show may take place, added: "keep the 5th July free".

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