While the church service at St Mary's Church in Bocking will just be for 'family and close friends', the band has said people are welcome to line the procession route in Braintree, Essex, on Friday 29 March to pay their final respects.
"There will be speakers relaying the ceremony outside the church for everyone to hear," The Prodigy explained in a tweet.
The electronic music artist was found dead at his home in Dunmow, Essex, on Monday 4 March.
Police later confirmed they were not treating the death as suspicious, with a spokesperson for Essex Police saying: "We were called to concerns for the welfare of a man at an address in Brook Hill, North End, just after 8.10am on Monday."
They continued: "We attended and, sadly, a 49-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have been informed. The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner."
An East of England Ambulance spokeswoman added: "We were called at 8.08am with reports of a man who was unconscious in Brook Hill, Dunmow.
"We sent an ambulance officer, Essex and Herts Air Ambulance and one ambulance. Sadly a man in his forties died at the scene."
The Prodigy paid tribute to the late frontman on Instagram, with Liam Howlett writing in an emotional post: "The news is true, I can't believe I'm saying this but our brother Keith took his own life over the weekend,
"I'm shell shocked, fuckin angry, confused and heartbroken... R.I.P. brother Liam."
The band also released a statement expressing their sorrow at the singer's passing, which read: "It is with deepest shock and sadness that we can confirm the death of our brother and best friend Keith Flint.
"A true pioneer, innovator and legend. He will be forever missed. We thank you for respecting the privacy of all concerned at this time."
All forthcoming Prodigy shows were then also cancelled.
Rest in peace, Keith - here's hoping you have one hell of a send-off.
