Singer won't be the 'Starman' at this year's event

David Bowie is not playing this year’s Coachella Festival, despite tabloid claims that he is.

It was claimed today (January 26) that the singer would revive his Ziggy Stardust persona for a performance at this year’s Californian event.

However a spokesperson for Bowie has told NME.COM the singer has no plans to play.

The line-up for the event has yet to be announced.
