Ou Est frontman leaps to death at Belgian music fest(Reuters) - The lead singer of British pop band Ou Est Le Swimming Pool jumped to his death after playing at a music festival in Belgium, British authorities have confirmed.

Charles Haddon, 22, leapt from a telecommunications mast behind the main stage at the Pukkelpop festival and fell to a parking area below on Friday. Belgian police are treating the death as suicide.

"We can confirm the death of a British national on August 20 in Hasselt, Belgium," a British Foreign Office spokeswoman said.

The band had performed at the three-day festival in Hasselt shortly before Haddon climbed up the mast. The band played the Glastonbury and Bestival festivals last year and were due to start a British tour in October.

They are most known for their track ‘Dance the Way I Feel’ and the Armand van Helden remix included on several mixes over the summer of 2009. Charles Haddon R.I.P.

Following rumors that the band would headline Glastonbury last summer, Pulp has confirmed that it shall reform for 2011 festival dates. The dates will include the Primavera Sound in Barcelona in May and the Wireless Festival at London's Hyde Park in July. It will be the first time the band has played a festival since announcing an "indefinite hiatus" in 2002.

Pulp's most stable and successful line-up consisted of Jarvis Cocker (vocals), Mark Webber (guitar), Russell Senior (guitar), Steve Mackey (bass), Candida Doyle (keyboard), and Nick Bands (drums). This line-up last shared a stage together in 1996. "Pulp have decided to get together and play some concerts next summer. The shows will involve all the original members of the band and they will be playing songs from all periods of their career. (Yes, that means they'll be playing your favourites)," the band's statement said. "In the meantime, ask yourself this: 'Do You Remember The First Time?' Thank you for your attention."

Cocker previously fueled rumors of a Glastonbury 2010 reunion in an interview with the People in 2009. "Glastonbury means an awful lot to me, I would love to play there again. We've talked about it, there we go, there'll be a band reunion," Cocker said.
