'We played [David's] music the entire drive from our camp to the Temple and back"...

A portion of the late, great David Bowie's ashes were reportedly scattered at this year's Burning Man Festival in Black Rock Desert, Nevada. 

A source tells E! News Bowie's wife Iman gave the late icon's godchild permission to honour him during the beloved music festival, which welcomes over 50,000 people each year to the Nevada desert.

"David's godchild and David had long talks about Burning Man and what it stands for, and David loved the message behind it," The source revealed. 

Burning Man is widely respected for it's message of 'anti-consumerism' and 'self-expression', closing the week-long festivities with a tradition of burning a large wooden sculpture. 

Bowie was reportedly honoured during an intimate gathering of about 70 people at a structure called the Temple, which is purpose-built for festival-goers to memorialise their late loved ones. 

"We played [David's] music the entire drive from our camp to the Temple and back," an eyewitness told E! "Most of us had the Bowie [lightning bolt] face paint on in his honour."

At the end of the festival, it was ceremoniously burned to the ground.

David Bowie died in January this year after an 18-month long battle with cancer.
