David Bowie's Ashes Scattered at Burning Man Ceremony

David Bowie’s ashes have reportedly been scattered at the annual Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert over Labor Day weekend.

The 69-year-old rock icon passed away in January after secretly battling cancer.

Burning Man is an annual festival that takes place at Black Rock City, a temporary community erected in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. It has been described as an experiment in community and art.

Bowie’s godchild is said to have brought a portion of his ashes to the spiritual event where they were spread. Reports added that the star was honored at a ceremony of about 70 people located at the Temple – a structure for attendees to pay tribute to their departed loved ones and is burned to the ground after the week-long gathering.

It is said that Bowie and his godchild had long talks about Burning Man and what it stands for, and Bowie loved the message behind it.
