The Libertines are delighted to announce they will be headlining and curating the third and final day of the ‘Wheels & Fins Festival’ on Sunday 9th September at Joss Bay Beach (Broadstairs), just down the road from The Libertines new hotel / studio, The Albion Rooms, in Margate. The Libertines are curating a fantabulous cornucopia of musical delights and will provide the icing on their own cake (Editors note: I often ice my own cake, ooh err) when they close the festival with one of their typically rip-roaring performances. Tickets are available now priced at £25.00 from http://wheelsandfins.co.uk/tickets/

An exclusive stream of acoustic songs and chatter from Carl, Gary, John and Peter recorded earlier today at the festival site, is available to watch now if you subscribe to thelibertines.com.

The Libertines will be donating proceeds from their appearance to two local Charities https://aspirationscentre.co.uk/ and http://piefactorymusic.com/
