Hundreds of well-wishers are set to line the streets to pay tribute to The Prodigy frontman Keith Flint today, who took his own life at the age of 49.
The vocalist was found hanged at his home in Essex on March 4.
The star’s bandmates have urged fans to line the procession route leading to St Mary’s church in Bocking, Essex, where friends and family are attending a private funeral service.
The band is asking people to ’raise the roof’ for Keef’, whose death earlier in the month sent shockwaves the music industry.
Celebrities across the music and entertainment industry paid tribute to The Prodigy’s Keith Flint, after news broke that the star had been found dead, aged 49

A tweet from the band’s official Twitter page said: ‘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 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.’
Essex Police said roads in the area would remain open and warned of delays as they were expecting a ‘large number of well-wishers’ to attend.
An inquest heard earlier this month that Flint died by hanging.
His bandmate Liam Howlett said in an earlier Instagram post that Flint ‘took his own life’.
The singer rose to fame in the Brit Award-winning electronic band in the 1990s and was known for hits including Firestarter and Breathe.
They released their latest album No Tourists in November, their seventh consecutive number one record.
He was described in a statement by Howlett and fellow bandmate Maxim as ‘a true pioneer, innovator and legend’.
They said Flint was their ‘brother and best friend’ and ‘he will be forever missed’.
He had taken part in the 5k Chelmsford Central parkrun on March 2, posting a personal best time of 21.22.
Following his death, The Prodigy cancelled all shows ‘with immediate effect’.
