David Bowie will be honoured at Glastonbury as confirmed by Emily Eavis, the event organiser. The Pyramid Stage will be decorated with a giant lightning bolt, inspired by the sleeve for Bowie’s Aladdin Sane album. Eavis also confirmed plans to pay tribute to Prince, who had long been rumoured as a potential headliner at the festival before he died last month at the age of 57.
Eavis confirmed his appearance had been "close to happening for three years" and called his death "a huge loss to music".
Eavis, who co-runs Glastonbury with her father, Michael, also confirmed plans for a separate festival in 2018 or 2019. She said: "It's going to be the whole team behind the Glastonbury Festival but it's not going to be called Glastonbury,"
"The main thing to set straight is that Glastonbury Festival itself will always be at Worthy Farm."
Meanwhile, Glastonbury will feature Coldplay and Adele, among others.
