Update, 18:48 GMT – David Bowie’s ashes were not scattered at Burning Man festival according the late singer’s son Duncan Jones.

Part of David Bowie’s ashes were scattered at last week’s Burning Man festival, according to entertainment website E!.

E! are reporting that one of the late singer’s godchildren had permission from Bowie’s widow Iman to scatter some, not all, of his ashes at the annual, week-long gathering in the Nevada desert.

Apparently Bowie’s godchild had “long talks about Burning Man and what it stands for, and David loved the message behind it”.

The ashes were scattered at The Temple of Black Rock City at the festival, the Temple is set up for attendees to pay respects to loved ones and then it is burned to the ground at the end of the week.

An eye-witness told E!: “We played [David’s] music the entire drive from our camp to the Temple and back… Most of us had the Bowie [lightning bolt] face paint on in his honor.”

In other Bowie news, some of his final recordings will be released next mont, according to Pitchfork.
