Damon Albarn lamented the result of the EU referendum at Glastonbury this morning, saying, “Democracy has failed us.”
The Blur frontman performed a solo set to open the Pyramid Stage right now, and took the chance to rail against the news that the UK will leave the European Union. “I have a very heavy heart right now,” he told the crowd, “because to my thoughts, democracy has failed us. Democracy has failed us since we were ill-informed.”
He added, ”And I just want all of you to know, that when we leave here, we can alter that selection. It is possible,” – although he failed to explain how.

Under: The worst band performance clashes at Glastonbury 2016
After a series of mishaps and controversies currently this year, now fresh trouble faces ATP’s occasion in Iceland – with bands taking on the web to pull out of the festival and slam organisers.
So far this year, Drive Like Jehu saw their curated occasion at ATP cancelled just a week ahead of it was set to take place – sharing a photo of toilet roll and claiming it had ‘crashed and burned’ at the hands of organisers. This came after their weekend and other curated by comedian Stewart Lee faced difficulties securing venues. Different acts booked had complaints relating to payment and communication in the course of Lee’s occasion, which went ahead.
Now, more difficulties face ATP Iceland which is set to kick off next month.
Fabio Frizzi has pulled out, saying: “We’ve created each effort to make this show occur, but regrettably the lack of communication and the failure to honour any of the agreements that we created with Barry Hogan (ATP), produced it impossible for us to carry out at this year’s ATP Iceland. It is a fantastic shame considering that as we were quite excited about these shows.”
Blanck Mass and múm have also cancelled their appearances, after múm wrote last month: “Regrettably the terms of the agreement with the festival have not been honoured and the band has been left with no other alternative than to pull out of the line-up.”
Speaking of current cancellations, ATP Iceland wrote on Facebook:
In 2014, the ATP-curated Jabberwocky Festival was also cancelled at the last minute, causing considerably frustration and numerous complaints from fans that had been awaiting refunds and bands had arranged to play.
ATP Iceland is at the moment scheduled for 1-three July at Ásbrú -with Keflavik. Angel Olsen, Omar Souleyman, John Carpenter, and Les Savy Fav all among these set to execute. For tickets and far more information, check out here

one hundred Nights of Summer: Days #1-3 Location: Nîmes, France Stats: 50 Artists, 4 Stages, 3 Days Genre: Indie Rock
Editor’s Note: This post was initially published on our mini-site 100 Nights of Summer season. I’m at present traveling across Europe to 15 festivals in 15 weekends in 15 countries. See more photos and stories from last year’s adventure right here. -VV
The sunny skies of southern France welcomed me to one particular of the country’s biggest indie rock fests. This boutique festival held in the super charming city of Nîmes remains an undiscovered gem for obtaining up close and individual with some incredible acts. This is Not a Adore Song (TINALS) also impressed with the age diversity of the crowd. Households with modest young children rubbed shoulders with older rockers and teen hipsters.
Some highlights from the weekend:
Friday, June 3
Back to function
It’s been virtually just more than a year because I embarked on my prior adventure — 15 festivals, 15 nations, 15 weeks. It feels very good to be back. Very first quit is at TINALS at an indie rock festival that I only heard about a couple months ago when I stumbled across this super sick lineup.
My wrist has felt naked for the last six months
Dilly Dally in the Grand Hall
The 1st official show for 100 Nights of Summer! Katie Monks from Toronto’s Dilly Dally sounds like she smokes a pack of cigarettes chased by a fifth of Jack ahead of every show and just crushes it. Couldn’t be happier that this is the initial act I caught for the duration of 100 NOS..
It may possibly be vibrant sunshine outside, but the Grand Hall makes each show really feel like a sweaty two:00am efficiency in a pitch black club. Here’s the song that produced the crowd go all nuts.
Ty Segall and the Muggers at the Flamingo Stage
It is nothing at all but vibrant sunshine as I head to my 1st outside show with Ty Segall and the Muggers. These guys are hitting the festival circuit hard this year and it’s worth it to catch the show as they bring a bit of swagger back into rock n’ roll.
Destroyer creating us really feel stuff
Meet the venue!
Paloma, the performing arts center of Nîmes is positioned on the northern edge of the city. It’s…an intriguing design and style to say the least. At some angles, it reminded me of “the beast slouching towards Bethlehem” and at other angles (and significantly less pretentious) it looked like a giant brown turd.Two of the four stages can be located in right here — the Grand Salle, a cavernous area with balcony and the super intimate dance friendly Club Paloma. Most of the action outdoors centers about the Flamingo Stage with up and comers performing just to the proper at the Mosquito Stage.
Foals rocking us into the evening
Saturday, June 4
Clouds on the horizon
Even though enjoying a fast beer and picnic lunch ahead of heading into a show, the French guy subsequent to me points at the sky and says, “Look. A monster cloud”. He was correct, but it turned out to be a gentle monster and the rolling thunderstorms have been more than in hours.
Gospel punk with Algiers
Rain on the outdoors meant a packed hall on the inside. They completely delivered with a foot-stomping, ass-shaking set to a packed room in the La Grande Hall.
Elvis has entered the building
If there’s a single breakout star of the weekend, it has to be French Elvis. I’ve seen plenty of “festival marriages”, but never ever one particular with a Las Vegas style ceremony comprehensive with a laugh-a-minute Elvis, guys in wedding dresses, and impromptu sing-a-longs.
I’m peeing into a bucket of sawdust
Remarkable bathroom solution for a festival with these super clean composting bathroom facilities. I took these shots on a Saturday and the spot nevertheless appears spotless.
This wasn’t at the festival but I identified this sick mural in a rain sewer across the street from TINALS under a McDonald’s parking lot.
Dinosaur Jr. closing out Saturday night
I’m not the greatest photographer. Possibly it’s due to the fact for the duration of shows like this I just cannot quit jumping around. Be more skilled man. Anyway, Dinosaur Jr. nonetheless sounds fucking fantastic. Hopefully I’ll be capable to see them a couple of far more occasions this summer time.
Sunday, June five
Meet A Festival Fan: Marcel from Switzerland
I don’t get starstruck by artists, but I do shed my thoughts when I see kick ass campers like this a single. Marcel and his buddy from have been camping in the parking lot for all 3 days and as I’m warned — “don’t smell very good.” They tell me about 50 others have been crashing right here for the festival. Then they offer me quite a bit of vodka. I’m ready for Sunday!
Flower crowns, button crafting, and French drinking games
Among the flower crowning, old college video games, hat design and style, and button workshops, there was plenty to keep busy among sets. There’s also some bizarre French peg throwing game that I never figured out.
The TINALS choir covers Destroyer’s Times Square
TINALS featured a roving choir that would break into song about the festival grounds. Here they are producing a unique look at a festival wedding. Watch for Elvis dropping some moves towards the end. Enjoyable reality: 1 of the singers ended up getting my Air BnB host.
Sunsets, Tortoise, and hamburgers
Following seeing drool-worthy meals all weekend, I decided to track down dinner at a single of the outstanding food trucks at TINALS. This disarmingly charming duo from FollyBun’s set me up in hamburger nirvana. Just seeing this image is generating me hungry once again.
Complete of burgers and beer, I did handle to catch this fantastic set from Tortoise where I swear each member can play each instrument.
