Fans sang 'Rebel Rebel' in celebration of the late star

Fans turned out in the masses to celebrate the life of David Bowie at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

The festival has paid tribute to the late music icon, who passed away in January, by decorating the Pyramid Stage this year with a giant lightning bolt, a reference to Bowie’s Aladdin Sane character.

Fans paid tribute to the star further by singing his most famous hits. Watch footage of festival-goers belting out ‘Rebel Rebel’ beneath.

The performance was organised by a group who dubbed the event ‘GlastonBowie’.

The organiser, Miz, said: “I started it a week after he passed away and it was just to basically deal with my own sorrow.”

“I’ve been a Bowie fan since I was a teenager myself and when he passed away, it just felt like music died. I was so shocked about it for about a week,” he added, as reported by Yahoo.

“I always thought I had one more chance to see him live. I saw him in Glastonbury 2000, it’s the best moment in my life. I just thought I have to do something to try to bring some kind of joy to people. For people to keep singing Bowie songs and remembering him.”
