Behind the scenes with the Libertines at Truck Festival – see the photos

The quartet put on a blistering performance for one of their only festival headline slots this year.

Whether you were there and want to relive their raucous performance, or if you just want to pretend you were, here are the shots to remind you of the show.

Barely pausing to take a breath, the boys hardly had time to speak to the audience except the occasional “thank you Truck”, instead letting their music do the talking.
