The Libertines have been confirmed as the final headliner for this year's Benicàssim Festival.

The headline set will take place on the Saturday night of the festival (July 19) on a line-up which also includes Lily Allen, Example and Manic Street Preachers.

The Benicàssim appearance will follow the band's reunion show at this year's British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park, London, on July 5, which is the group’s first live performance since appearing at the Reading and Leeds Festivals in 2010.

Prior to the announcement of their reunion and live plans, both Pete Doherty and Carl Barât said that the band will play warm-up gigs. Pete Doherty said: "There'll be a warm-up, and there might be a free one for people who can't get into Hyde Park, maybe." There is also talk of the band playing new material.

Paolo Nutini and Kasabian will also headline Benicàssim, which takes place at the Benicàssim concert venue in Castellón between July 17-20.

MIA will also appear at the festival as will Jake Bugg, Chase & Status, Ellie Goulding, Tame Impala, Razorlight and Klaxons. The 1975, Kodaline, The Charlatans and The Courteeners will also appear over the course over the weekend. Scroll down for ticket details.
