Pete Doherty has pulled out of this year's T In The Park festival.

The former Libertines man flew to Thailand yesterday (June 26) to seek treatment for heroin and crack cocaine addiction and as a result will not be performing at the event.

This is the second year in a row that Doherty has pulled out of the Scottish festival. He was also booked to play in 2011, but withdrew after he was sent to prison for cocaine possession.

Speaking to NME, T In The Park organiser Geoff Ellis confirmed Doherty's pull-out, saying: "It's a shame. I got a call at about 2am saying that he was going into a medical facility for some treatment and couldn't play. It's a shame because he couldn't play last year and we said we'd put him on this year and he's had to pull out again. I hope he recovers."

Then asked if he'd try and get the singer back in 2013 Ellis confirmed that he would. He added: "Yeah, we'll try again. He's said some nice things about the festival and I know it's one of his favourites. It'd be nice to get him back."

T In The Park will be headlined by The Stone Roses, Kasabian and Snow Patrol and takes place over the weekend of July 6-8 in Balado Park, Kinross.
