Pulp are reuniting to headline a British music festival in 2011 - just a year after former frontman Jarvis Cocker denied the band was getting back together.

Last year, the singer sparked rumours the 1990s Britpop icons were regrouping for a gig at U.K. music event Glastonbury in the summer after admitting he'd love to be a part of the festival's 40th anniversary.

He later insisted his words had been taken out of context and that he meant he would perform a show as a solo star - claiming Pulp had no plans to reform.

However, the group has now decided to reteam for the first time in 14 years - they have confirmed they will play Britain's Wireless festival next July, among other dates.

A statement from the band reads, "Pulp have decided to get together and play some concerts next summer. The shows will involve all the original members of the band (Nick Banks, Jarvis Cocker, Candida Doyle, Steve Mackey, Russell Senior & Mark Webber) and they will be playing songs from all periods of their career. (Yes, that means they'll be playing your favourites)."
