Band also bag the Anthem Of The Summer according to voters

The Libertines reunion has been crowned 2010’s Defining Festival Moment by NME readers taking part in our annual Festival Survey.

Voters were polled on a range of topics relating to this year’s festival season, and the results have been published in full in this week’s issue of NME, which is available on UK newsstands now, or available digitally worldwide right now.

The Libertines won a number of awards, including 2010’s Defining Festival Moment for their performances at the Reading and Leeds Festivals. In that category they received 34 per cent of the vote.

The band’s 2003 single ‘Don’t Look Back Into The Sun’ was also named the Anthem Of The Summer, beating the likes of Arcade Fire‘s ‘Wake Up’, ‘Fire’ by Kasabian, and Muse‘s ‘Plug In Baby’.

Elsewhere in the poll, the four-piece were also crowned the Best Festival Comeback act, ahead of Blink-182, The Strokes, Eminem and Pavement.
