The Music World Reacts to Brexit Vote

The Music World Reacts to Brexit Vote
The United Kingdom opted to leave the European Union yesterday (June 23) after an incredibly tight referendum race. Prime Minister David Cameron has announced that he will resign in the wake of the country's decision, and many other public figures are continuing to voice their opinions about the poll results and the serious repercussions Britain's exit from the EU could have going forward.
 
UK music festival institution Glastonbury is currently underway, giving artists a platform to speak out, and allowing music fans the opportunity to process the news en masse. A poem has been posted on the festival grounds and shared across social media by organizers.
 
 
As previously reported, a recent poll found a correlation between voters' Britpop preferences in the Blur and Oasis battle and their support to either remain or leave the EU, respectively; it would appear Oasis fans have once again won the war.

An apathetic Noel Gallagher said, "I don't think we should be given a vote" in a recent interview, but Blur frontman Damon Albarn took a firmer stance during his set at Glastonbury last night, telling the crowd: "I have a very heavy heart today. To my mind, democracy has failed us, because we were ill-informed."

He continued, "I just want all of you to know, that when we leave here, we can change that decision. It is possible."
 
A number of other artists from the UK and abroad have also taken to social media to show their dismay for the decision. Read an array of reactions below.
