The Libertines are reported to be playing this year's Glastonbury festival.

Today (February 11) The Sun newspaper claims that Pete Doherty, Carl Barat and co are set to play the Other Stage at the Somerset event this June. However, Barat has told NME that they have not been confirmed yet.

When asked if the four-piece would be performing at the event, he replied: "It's been mentioned, but I've not had an actual dialogue yet with the other band members."

He did, however, say he would be up for playing events this summer again, the band having made their comeback at the Reading And Leeds Festivals last August.

"It'd be nice to do a few, if we get the old machine up again," he said. "There's all sorts of things to think about, with all that's going on."

Pete Doherty is going on a solo tour this May. Barat plays a Shockwaves NME Awards Show at the London 100 Club on February 20, plus further UK dates in March and April.

Beyonce, U2 and Coldplay look set to headline the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury this year. The event takes place on June 24-26.
