David Bowie fans will soon be able to snap up his Glastonbury 2000 set on vinyl

David Bowie's headline set on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury 2000 is set to be pressed to vinyl for the first time.

Due next month via Warner Music, the 21-track set will be spread across three records, and the release will include the diary Bowie wrote for Time Out ahead of the set.

"As of 1990 I got through the rest of the 20th century without having to do a big hits show," Bowie said in the diary entry, adding that "big, well known songs will litter the field at Glastonbury this year. Well, with a couple of quirks of course."

The artwork for the release has been designed by Jonathan Barnbrook who was also behind the design for Bowie's albums Heathen, The Next Day and Blackstar. The release will also feature photographs of Bowie from that night in 2000.

The set will be released on vinyl on November 30. You can pre-order it here.
