A lot of people have had something to say in the wake of Brexit, and that certainly extends to Britain's musicians, and the music world in general. 

Glastonbury Festival, which just wrapped up in the UK, has provided a sizeable stage for a lot of Britain's artists to voice their opinions on the Brexit vote. 

The reactions from the Brits at Glastonbury ranges from dismayed to simple fury. Damon Albarn took the opportunity on stage to tell the crowd, "I have a very heavy heart today ... To my mind, democracy has failed us, because we were ill-informed."

He did end on a slightly more positive note by saying, "And I just want all of you to know, that when we leave here, we can change that decision ... It is possible."

In rather stark contrast to Albarn's comments, grime MC Novelist lead the crowd in a rousing and angry chant of "Fuck David Cameron," after polling the crowd for how they voted in the referendum. 

Indie rockers Bastille have also admitted to being pretty bummed out about Brexit in a quick interview with NME before their Glastonbury set. "Our first day at Glasto been a bit rubbish because of waking up to the news about Brexit and stuff, which for some people is quite sad and quite shocking," they admitted. When asked about mixing music with politics, they replied, "I dunno, I'm not sure. It's always tricky. Obviously everybody's got an opinion and if you're in a band and you've got an opinion and you express, often people will use that as an excuse to knock you for it.

The outcome of the referendum has even managed to unite the perennial-at-odds Liam and Noel Gallagher of Oasis (a rather impressive feet) in anger over the decision.
