The Prodigy Fans Have A Rave At Keith Flint’s Funeral
Today was the memorial for the late frontman of The Prodigy, Keith Flint, and fans were invited via a tweet from the band members to take part in the procession through Braintree, Essex. The procession ended at a church, which was just for friends and family, but the ceremony was played to fans in the parking lot through speakers.
Fans are invited to line the procession route, starting at 3pm in Braintree, Essex on Fri 29th March, to pay their final respects & 'raise the roof' for Keef!— The Prodigy (@the_prodigy) March 23, 2019
If anyone wishes to lay flowers or tributes these should be sent to St Mary's church in Bocking, no later than 2pm Friday pic.twitter.com/cMTDv2jKi9
Naturally, the whole thing turned into a huge party. The folks at MixMag were there live-blogging the whole event today, and they caught this video of fans raving on the streets. It seems safe to assume that Keith would approve:

The Prodigy confirmed Keith’s death earlier this month, writing: “It is with deepest shock and sadness that we can confirm the death of our brother and best friend Keith Flint. A true pioneer, innovator and legend. He will be forever missed. We thank you for respecting the privacy of all concerned at this time.”
