The Libertines are to reunite at the Glastonbury Festival this summer.

The British indie band - fronted by Carl Barat and Pete Doherty - reformed to play the 2010 Reading and Leeds Festivals for their first live shows since 2004, and after the success of their comeback they are reportedly keen to play at the iconic British music event in June.

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

"They begged for 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."

Pete - who was fired from the band in 2004 over his drug use, which eventually led to the total disbandment of the 'Can't Stand Me Now' rockers - recently wrote on his blog that the band's manager had phoned, saying: "There's some offers for Libertines gigs."

Coldplay, Beyonce and U2 are this year's rumoured headliners for Glastonbury, which will take place from June 22 -26 in Somerset, South West England.
