The Libertines had arrived by helicopter just hours before playing. At 8.23pm, a banner, featuring the cover of the band’s 2002 debut album ‘Up The Bracket’ was hoisted above the video screen at the rear of the stage, and the band, led by Pete Doherty, arrived to a huge roar from the crowd. Those watching at the side of the stage included Michael Eavis, Metallica’s Lars Ulrich and Florence Welch.
