David Bowie masked ball at Isle of Wight festival

Music fans wore David Bowie masks at the Isle of Wight festival, the first of a series of tributes to the late singer at outdoor music events and festivals throughout the UK this summer.

David Bowie’s last festival appearance was at the Isle of Wight in 2004. He died in January after a battle with cancer.David Bowie – Young Americans

The tribute on Saturday was organised by Stand Up to Cancer, a joint fundraising campaign by Cancer Research UK and Channel 4, which is the Isle of Wight festival’s official charity partner for 2016.

The festival’s chief, John Giddings, commented: “David was a true musical icon, an immense talent who as a performer was incredible. His energy, creativity and passion were incomparable and I feel very lucky to have spent so many years working with him.”

He added: “His set at the Isle of Wight festival in 2004 was one of the highlights of my career, and sadly his last UK festival show. I was hoping he’d play this year so our tribute will be a very emotional moment for me.”
