The Prodigy have invited fans to join the procession route at Keith Flint’s funeral next week and “raise the roof” in tribute to the frontman.
Flint died earlier this month (March 4) at his Essex home, with an inquest later stating that he had taken his own life. He was 49.
The iconic rave outfit have now posted details of the late musician’s funeral, while inviting their fans “to pay their final respects” to Flint in Essex next Friday (March 29).
Posting on their official Twitter page, the band said: “Fans are invited to line the procession route, starting at 3pm in Braintree, Essex on Fri 29th March, to pay their final respects & ‘raise the roof’ for Keef!
“If anyone wishes to lay flowers or tributes these should be sent to St Mary’s church in Bocking, no later than 2pm Friday.”
In a follow-up post, The Prodigy added that fans will also be able to listen to the funeral live through nearby speakers. “The church service will just be for family and close friends, but there will be speakers relaying the ceremony outside the church for everyone to hear,” they said.
See those posts along with a map of the procession route below.

Meanwhile, a new mural tribute of Keith Flint has appeared in Peterborough. Street artist Nathan Murdock painted the image of Flint with bright green hair and with his tongue out on a wall in the Cambridgeshire city. He told the BBC that it took two days to do because he “had to get it right”.
