The troubled outfit play a massive free show with a whole host of special guests...

Troubled rockers Libertines are to headline an anti-racism festival in LONDON next month (June 6).

The band, whose co-frontman Pete Doherty is currently in rehab battling drug addiction, will play the Love Music Hate Racism event, for which entry is free, in Finsbury Park on Sunday, June 6.

Libertines’ producer and ex- Clash star Mick Jones’ new band Carbon/Silicon will also be on the bill along with Goldie Lookin’ Chain, Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster, and a host of others, including a “very special guest”.

People attending will be asked to make a donation to the Love Music Hate Racism campaign, set up by the Anti-Nazi League.

The gig is part of the ANL’s campaign to halt the progress of right wing organisations such as the British National Party, National Front and Combat 18.

A similar event takes place in Manchester on May 30. The Unity Festival will be in Castlefield Outdoor Arena and among the acts performing are Badly Drawn Boy, [a][/a], and Bloc Party.
