The indie rockers are the first of the festival’s headline acts to be revealed, and will be playing in what looks set to be a historic year for the festival, as it moves to its new home of Strathallan Castle.

Having disbanded after the release of their second album, the band announced their return last summer, which they followed up with successful shows at Glasgow’s Barrowlands and London’s Hyde Park.

Commenting on the announcement, Festival Director Geoff Ellis said: ‘The Libertines are a truly iconic British band, revered as cult heroes by a generation of music fans and adored by the Scottish crowd.
