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.
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.”
