The festival's organisers said: "The Prodigy could never be replaced, as one of the greatest bands in the world who have graced our forest stage with some of the most electric and unforgettable performances that will live on in our minds, hearts and Snowbombing history forever.
"The Prodigy were set to close the event with another memorable headline moment in the forest. Paying tribute to frontman Keith Flint, the night will now see beloved Snowbombing favourites Chase & Status curate a unique evening full of unmissable performances. The Forest Stage will be headlined by a DJ set from Chase & Status showcasing their RTRN II Jungle night - pulling in names such as SASASAS, Special Request, Channel One and Brockie And Det."
They concluded: "Paying homage to Keith, we are fundraising for a very important mental health charity, CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) - raising awareness of the vital work they do."
Too often, people feel afraid to admit that they are struggling with their mental health. This fear of prejudice and judgement stops people from getting help and can destroy families and end lives.
Heads Together wants to help people feel much more comfortable with their everyday mental wellbeing and have the practical tools to support their friends and family.
One of their partners is the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), an award-winning charity dedicated to preventing male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. In 2015, 75% of all UK suicides were male.
