David Bowie's legendary headlining performance at Glastonbury Festival in 2000 is being released in full for the first time.

Parlophone Records in association with BBC Studios and Glastonbury Festivals Ltd. will release David Bowie 'Glastonbury 2000' on 2CD/DVD, 3LP, 2CD and standard and high resolution digital formats. The record will be released on November 30.

The package includes the full 21 song greatest hits set and for the first time, a DVD of the entire show, which is considered to be one of the greatest sets in Glastonbury Festival history. Earlier, only 37 minutes of the show had been broadcast on TV.

In addition to newly mastered audio and upgraded video, David Bowie 'Glastonbury 2000' will feature new artwork from Jonathan Barnbrook and notes from the renowned author and Bowie fan Caitlin Moran.

Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis commented "I often get asked what the best set I've seen here at Glastonbury is, and Bowie's 2000 performance is always one which I think of first. It was spellbinding; he had an absolutely enormous crowd transfixed. I think Bowie had a very deep relationship with Worthy Farm and he told some wonderful stories about his first time at the Festival in 1971, when he stayed at the farmhouse and performed at 6am as the sun was rising. And he just played the perfect headline set. It really was a very special and emotional show."
