The Libertines may follow up their triumphant reunion gig at Leeds/Reading festival last year with a slot at Glastonbury in June.

Pete Doherty, Carl Barat and the other two who no-one can ever remember the names of are set to play the Other Stage at the mega festival this summer, the Sun claims.

An insider told the tabloid: “Although there are no signs of new songs, the boys have realised that they can take a nice payday by playing each summer.

“They bagged more than £1 million for Reading and Leeds in 2010 and, although they won’t get as much for Glastonbury, it will still be a good pay day.”

Doherty recently wrote on his blog “There’s some offers for Libertines gigs” for the coming year but did not elaborate.

Barat meanwhile told NME that nothing’s set in stone just yet “It’s been mentioned, but I’ve not had an actual dialogue yet with the other band members,” he said of appearing at Glastonbury.

U2 and Coldplay are confirmed to headline the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury this year and Beyonce is rumoured to join them.

Glastonbury takes place on June 24-26 at Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset.
