Aside from the metal lightning flash, “we're doing Philip Glass's Heroes Symphony on the Park Stage on Saturday night, which is going to be a really intimate tribute to Bowie,” she says. “It's being conducted by Charles Hazlewood with members of the Paraorchestra. And we're going to do an incredible light show which will go on for the whole show and beyond, into the night.”
Eavis also noted Prince’s appearance at the fest had been "close to happening for three years." She added, “It's really disappointing that he hasn't played here but it's also, obviously, a huge loss to music because he was an incredible force. Just phenomenal. There was no-one else like him on the planet.” Prince died last month at the age of 57.
