The band reunited last year for special performances at the Reading and Leeds festivals, where they wowed both crowds and critics alike.

A source told The Sun: “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 from Reading and Leeds in 2010 and, although they won’t get as much for Glasto, it will still be a good earner.”

According to the paper Pete posted messages on his blog hinting at more Libertines performances, which were hurriedly deleted when he realised he was giving too much away about his band’s plans.

He reportedly told fans that his manager and just phoned, and said: “There’s some offers for Libertines gigs.”
Acts already thought to be appearing at this year’s Glasto include Coldplay, U2 and Beyonce.
