The Libertines

The Libertines are launching their own festival. Sort of. They’re renaming the last day of a festival they were already headlining. Still counts though, right? They’ll launch their Sharabang event by taking over the last day of this year’s Wheels & Fins festival, with plans to make the new festival brand its own thing in the coming years.

As well as performing at the close of the festival, the band have curated the line-up for the day. Playing before them will be Echo And The Bunnymen, Reverend And The Makers , Cabbage, Chas & Dav, Mic Righteous, Lock and Zuzu, with poet Luke Wright compering.

Wheels & Fins takes place at Joss Bay near Broadstairs, just up the road from The Libertines’ still-in-development hotel, The Albion Rooms in Margate. Currently they’ve got a union jack hanging off the scaffolding and have tried out a few different colours of paint on the front of the building, none of which I’d say are right for it. Stay tuned for more!
