Novelist leads crowd chant of ‘Fuck David Cameron’ at Glastonbury 2016

Grime MC previously sampled a speech of the Conservative leader in a song

Novelist encouraged fans to chant “Fuck David Cameron” during his set at Glastonbury Festival today (Friday, June 24).

The grime MC performed this afternoon on the Sonic stage, which features grime, house and techno music. During his set, Novelist asked the crowd how they voted in the EU Referendum before leading a chant of “Fuck David Cameron” with fans joining in.

Cameron announced earlier today that he will resign as UK Prime Minister after the announcement that the British public have voted to leave the European Union. See the music world’s reaction to the EU Referendum result.

Novelist’s song ‘Street Politician’ opens with a sample of a Cameron speech, which sees him saying “We will not allow a culture of fear to exist on our streets”. Listen to that beneath.

Novelist also appeared during Skepta’s Glastonbury set earlier in the day.

Fellow grime MC, whose real name is Joseph Adenuga, was making his debut appearance on the Pyramid Stage, the festival’s main stage.


Novelist joined him on stage for the track ‘Lyrics’, which features on Skepta’s debut album ‘Konnichiwa’.
