Ellie Goulding performs for the crowd during her set at the 2016 Glastonbury Festival on Sunday (June 26) in England.
The 29-year-old singer used her time on stage to comment on the disappointing outcome of the Brexit vote and to encourage her fans to spread the “spirit of Glastonbury” around the country.
“I know things have been a bit weird the past few days. Actually that’s an understatement,” Ellie said (via The Mirror). “But it is so nice to be in a place where there is so much unity and where everyone is so happy and friendly and dancing together and laughing together and loving each other.”
“I really hope now for this lovely country that I live in and you live in that that sentiment, that spirit of Glastonbury, happens all over the country still, because I know some really terrible things have been happening and I really hope that when you go home that you guys will take that spirit with you,” Ellie continued. “And if you see that that spirit is not happening wherever you live, wherever you are, to other people… We are all one person, we are all human beings. I just want to say I really hope that we can all carry the spirit of Glastonbury home with us, because that would make me very happy.”
