James dedicate song to ‘all the beautiful people who voted to remain’ during Glastonbury set

The band started their Other Stage set 50 minutes late due to damage to the field

James dedicated a song to “all the beautiful people who voted to remain” during their Glastonbury set.

Guitarist Larry Gott also told the audience: “We stand in front of you today unified in the sadness that our country decided to turn against people. Well, fuck them.”

The Manchester group played tracks from their new album ‘Girl At The End Of The World’ alongside old hits like ‘Laid’ and ‘Come Home’.


The band were meant to start at 11am, but had to push back their performance while damage to the field was repaired. They eventually started 50 minutes late.

Staff were still laying woodchips on the ground to soak up and cover excess mud that had gathered in front of the stage when their set time came around.

Festival organiser Michael Eavis spoke to the crowd once the work had been completed, announcing that the fences cordoning off the area were about to be removed.

“Move slowly forward to the front,” he warned. “James will be on stage in around six minutes. Thank you for coming, you really are the best audience in the whole wide world.”
