Even the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts is planning ahead with something special.According to BBC, this year’s Glastonbury will hang a massive metal lightning bolt on the Pyramid State in honor of David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane album cover. There will also be footage from Bowie’s 2000 appearance on that very stage playing across the entire festival. Additionally, a special tribute to Bowie’s 1977 album Heroes will take place on the Park Stage.Watch Bowie’s full Glastonbury performance from 2000 below:In honor of Prince, there will be “an incredible light show which will go on for the whole show and beyond, into the night,” says Glastonbury co-founder Emily Eavis. “There’s talk of late-night Prince parties and things,” she adds. Though he’s never played the England festival before, his presence in music will undoubtedly be known. With over a month to plan, we’re confident festival organizers will pull these tributes off in style. It can also be expected that many of the performing artists and entertainers will also work tributes into their own sets as well.Known for being one of the largest festivals in the world, Glastonbury is going down June 22-26 in Pilton, England. Festivalgoers will get to see headlining performances from Muse, Adele, Coldplay, Foals, Jeff Lynne’s ELO, Beck, LCD Soundsystem, PJ Harvey, ZZ Top, Disclosure, New Order, Earth Wind & Fire, The Last Shadow Puppets, Ellie Goulding, Skepta, The 1975, Grimes and plenty more. [H/T CoS]last_img read more
