David Bowie's music to be performed at Glastonbury

The music of the late David Bowie is to be performed by various artists at this year's Glastonbury Festival, where tributes to the pop star will take centre stage.

The Pyramid stage will be decorated with a giant metal Aladdin Sane lightning flash in memory of Bowie, whose performance from his 2000 appearance is due to be broadcast around the site.

Meanwhile the Park Stage will host an "intimate" musical tribute to Bowie's album Heroes.

The Starman singer, who performed at the Somerset festival twice, died aged 69 in January.
