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.


Meanwhile. tonight sees Muse take to the primary stage to headline, alongside performances from Disclosure, Foals, Sigur Ros and future Prime Minister Stormzy.
