The Libertines to headline Benidorm’s Low Festival

Band will join previously announced headliners Kasabian on bill

The Libertines have been announced as the second headliners for Benidorm’s Low Festival.

They will join previously announced headliners Kasabian, as well as The Drums, The Raveonettes, The Growlers, L.A, Los Enemigos, Supersubmarina, and Nacho Vegas, among others.

Low Festival takes place in Benidorm, Spain on July 24-26. Tickets are available from the festival’s website.

The Libertines are also performing at Ibiza Rocks, T In The Park and Benicassim. Carl Barat recently announced that he wants Noel Gallagher to produce the next Libertines’ album, stating, “I’d love to work with him”.

Barat told NME: “I’m going to email Noel Gallagher. I know he’s really busy, but hopefully he’s got a bit of time for the Libertines who love him so. Noel’s Noel, isn’t he? I’d love to work with him. He’s hilarious, but he has such clarity of vision as well. That’s something the Libertines could certainly use.”

The Libertines’ long awaited new record is expected to be released later this year. It follows a series of high profile reunion gigs from the band in 2014, including a sold-out date in London’s Hyde Park and three nights at Alexandra Palace.

Barat said that songs he and Doherty had already written for the album were “surprisingly upbeat”. Meanwhile, Pete Doherty confirmed that the band will be recording their album at Karma Studios in Thailand, where Doherty has just completed a stint in rehab.
