The details of Glastonbury’s annual talent competition have been announced. As always the Emerging Talent Competition gives unsigned acts from the UK and Ireland a chance to play a main slot at the festival – previous entrants include Stornoway, Scouting For Girls, We Have Band, the Golden Silvers, the Subways and last year’s winners Ellen and the Escapades.
For the 2011 competition, acts will be able to enter FOR ONE WEEK ONLY from Monday, 10th January until Monday, 17th January 2011 via an entry form on our official website, http://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk. Entries for ETC2011 will be FREE. To enter, you will simply need to supply us with a direct link to a web page where we can hear at least one of your songs (MySpace, official site, YouTube, SoundCloud etc).
A panel of music bloggers will compile a longlist of 120 acts. A shortlist of 10 acts will play for the judges, including Michael and Emily Eavis, is a series of live shows this April when the winner will be chosen.
