Hoy, el Reino Unido está inmerso en un histórico referendum que decidirá si Gran Bretaña deja o no la Unión Europea. Mientras que la votación por el Brexit se está llevando a cabo con total normalidad, músicos y figuras opinaron sobre este suceso que puede alterar dramáticamente la industria musical (entre otros planso). La tendencia casi totalitaria de los músicos es para que Gran Bretaña se quede dentro de la UE.

Noel Gallagher dijo ayer que no sabía si iba a ir a votar: «Voy a decidirlo en la mañana. Capaz estoy ocupado». En diálogo con la CBC, Gallagher comentó que prefiere dejar esas decisiones a los políticos que «no nos preguntaron ni mierda si queríamos ir a la guerra, ¿no?»

Otros fueron más claros en sus posturas. Compartimos mensajes públicos de Johnny Marr, Brian Eno, Portishead, Four Tet, Disclosure, Blood Orange, y más:

If you believe that the UK is better off in the EU, please make sure you speak up now before you vote. The polls are showing both camps neck and neck, with one day to go. So far the dialogue that has defined this debate has been poisonous. Both campaigns have aimed to scare and intimidate us into following their lead. People need to hear about why the people they care about are voting. So please please please, make your voice heard tonight and tomorrow. Young Turks is proud to be a London based, British record label. Our staff and artists are made up of people from England, Ireland (North & The Republic), Wales, Scotland, the Netherlands, France, Sierra Leone, Spain (some proud Catalonians too), Norway, Japan, Nigeria, Jamaica, Mexico, Japan, Kenya, Canada, the USA and many other places around the world. All these people, all these places make us what we are and this could only have happened in a place as culturally diverse and open as the UK. We’ll be voting to #REMAIN tomorrow because we believe in the basic principle that people work better together. The UK is a better place because of its willingness to interact globally, on cultural, financial, political and humanitarian terms. The issues we really care about are playing out on a global level: climate change, the refugee crisis, the rise of populism/separatism in politics, religion & every day life, etc etc. We can’t address these by turning our backs on the world. We’re also not willing to see our NHS, education system and other vital public services slashed any further due to the recession* that would follow a vote for Brexit. You’re all welcome to your own views, just make sure they’re heard before the vote, equally as important is that we make sure we we respect those of others. So please: Say you’re in, If you’re in! *as reported by nearly all reputable major economic think tanks, publications and institutions. Many thanks for the image: @seanjedwards
