David Bowie's ashes have reportedly been spread across Burning Man festival.

According to reports, Bowie's godchild was given permission by Bowie's widow Iman to spread the ashes across Nevada's desert during the annual week-long gathering. 

Bowie and his godchild are said to have "had long talks about Burning Man and what it stands for, and David loved the message behind it".

Bowie was commemorated by around 70 people at The Temple of Black Rock City, the temporary community set up in Black Rock Desert for Burning Man. Attendees are encouraged to pay respects to their loved ones and, at the end of the week, is torched to the ground.

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."
