The Libertines to join The Streets when performing in Norfolk in May
The Libertines will be performing in Norfolk this summer as part of a one-day outdoor festival just two days after The Streets are in the area.
Led by iconic frontmen Carl Barât and Peter Doherty, the band will return to Earlham Park in Norwich on May 24, 2020.
It will be the third time the London band will be performing at the venue as part of a Sunday Sessions line-up.
The Libertines burst onto the scene in the early 2000s and proceeded to produce a catalogue of well-known singles including ‘Can’t Stand Me Now’, ‘Don’t Look Back Into The Sun’, ‘What A Waster’, ‘Time For Heroes’, ‘Up The Bracket’ and ‘What Became Of The Likely Lads’ .
After disbanding at the end of 2004, The Libertines reformed in 2010 before releasing their third album ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’ in 2015.
Tickets went on sale this morning for the Sunday Sessions event, which is aimed at the whole family. Children can enjoy free activities to keep them occupied, including circus workshops with the Bigtopmania Circus, face painting, crafts and a super funfair as well as children’s entertainers.

Also performing at Earlham Park in May are The Streets, who have been announced as headliners at the venue on Friday, May 22.
Friday Night Live founders Nick Billinghurst and Matt Smith said: “Friday Night Live will bring the biggest and best artists to outdoor locations all over the UK for an evening of unforgettable live music, and we’re absolutely thrilled to launch the event with a headliner as iconic as The Streets.”
Mike Skinner, also known as The Streets, rose to prominence as a British rapper with his debut album 'Original Pirate Material', which was released in 2002.
He went on to produce massive hit singles “Fit But You Know It” and “Dry Your Eyes” which were received on a global scale as the idiosyncratic sounds of The Streets became iconic.
