Yonaka supports The Libertines at Meltdown Festival
The Libertines play a one-off intimate show as part of Robert Smith’s Meltdown. Support comes in the form of dark alt-pop from Brighton's Yonaka.
In the late 1990s East London squat scene, Pete Doherty and Carl Barât, two troubadours and dreamers, met and bonded over music and a common romanticism. They resolved to form a band with a name that reflected their attitude, and so The Libertines were born.
After three studio albums and almost two decades of thrills and spills that NME has dubbed ‘the greatest rock 'n' roll story of their generation’, The Libertines have established themselves as one of the most relevant and exciting rock bands of our times.
