Glastonbury 2016: David Bowie And Prince Tribute Details Confirmed

The festival will honour the late music legends.

Glastonbury organisers have revealed details of plans to honour both David Bowie and Prince at this year's festival.

Emily Eavis has confirmed that a metal sculpture will adorn the Pyramid Stage, inspired by the iconic album artwork for Bowie's 'Aladdin Sane'.

The Park Stage will also play host to a performance of Philip Glass's 'Symphony No 4', which is based on the late singer's 'Heroes' album.

She also claimed that plans are afoot to hold a late-night Prince party.

Bowie previously headlined the festival, playing the Pyramid Stage in 1971 and 2000.

Prince, however, never played Glastonbury, but Emily admitted that she came close to signing him on a number of occasions.

David Bowie died in January, aged 69, following a private battle with cancer.

Prince was found dead at his Paisley Park home in Minnesota last month, at the age of 57.

Adele, Coldplay and Muse will all headline this year's Glastonbury, which takes place from 22 to 26 June.
