Michael Eavis has confirmed that David Bowie will be honoured at Glastonbury 2016.

The festival founder attended last night's NME Awards and revealed their plans to pay tribute the late rock star, who died of cancer last month. 

Asked by Radio X if there were any plans to honour the Let's Dance star at the upcoming festival, Eavis said: "Yes, we're doing a film of his set from the year 2000.

He added: "It's going to be shown on one of the screens when the stages are shut down. We'll show the entire set."

The awards ceremony also paid tribute to the late star, with a montage of his NME covers throughout the years.

Eavis, who along with his daughter Emily picked up the award for Best Festival, said: "46 years and we're still going strong. 

"No one can keep up with us".

Festival organiser Emily also confirmed that PJ Harvey would be taking to the festival this year, and that the remaining two headliners will be revealed on 1 April.

Coldplay - who are set to headline Glasto's Pyramid stage for the fourth time - picked up their NME Godlike Genius Award and silenced their critics with a crowd-pleasing set of their latest and greatest hits including Yellow, Viva La Vida, Adventure Of A Lifetime and Fix You.
