Carl Barat has announced that The Libertines will not be appearing at this year's Glastonbury Festival.

After the band reunited to headline Reading and Leeds last year, it has been heavily rumoured that they would do the same for Glastonbury in 2011.

"Getting back together at Reading and Leeds was more than I could ever imagine and made me understand and realise what an impact the band had on a generation," he told The Sun.

"In time I would be keen to do it again but Pete Doherty and I are busy doing other things. It's definitely not over between us, we're just waiting for the right time.

"The next thing will be something special," he added.

Speaking of the lack of guitar bands in the charts, the singer commented: "I'm not much into what's going on at the moment and can't see anybody who could take the Libertines' throne."

Carl Barat recently had to postpone dates for his upcoming solo tour.
