The Prodigy mapped out Flint’s procession route, sharing the map and inviting fans to pay their final respects to the late frontman.



“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! If anyone wishes to lay flowers or tributes these should be sent to St Mary’s church in Bocking, no later than 2pm Friday”


The band also added:

“The church service will just be for family and close friends, but there will be speakers relaying the ceremony outside the church for everyone to hear.”


Following Flint’s passing, the band decided to exit four festival appearances put on by Danny Wimmer Presents. The scheduled festivals include Jacksonville’s Welcome To Rockville on May 3, Rockingham’s Epicenter on May 10, Columbus’ Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival on May 18 and Chicago Open Air Presents on May 19.

The announcements follow the band’s decision to cancel all forthcoming tour dates this spring. Originally, the trio were set to embark on a short string of U.S. dates this May including the aforementioned festivals. The band announced the gigs in February, revealing it was their first headlining U.S. tour in 10 years.

On March 11, the coroners’ report confirmed Flint’s cause of death was a suicide by hanging, according to the BBC.

While they are still awaiting toxicology reports to come in, they have determined the cause of death is not suspicious.

Our thoughts are with Flint’s family and friends at this time.
