The Libertines announced the news in an Instagram account that appears to have been set up especially to confirm the rumours.




Organiser Emily Eavis confirmed that a band will be performing during the slot left vacant by Florence + The Machine, but in the name of anticipation and surprise, refused to give anything away.

"There is definitely something filling that gap but under no circumstances will it be announced," she said. "Luckily it's been a proper secret, a proper surprise, which actually is quite hard to do now because things get out."


The Libertines were booked to play the Pyramid Stage in 2004 but had to pull out and were replaced by Supergrass. They played the Other Stage to wide acclaim in 2003.
