Your Chance To Perform At Glastonbury 2014

Glastonbury Festival have announced details of its 2014 Emerging Talent Competition, which gives new, unsigned artists from the UK and Ireland the chance to compete for a slot on one of the main stages at the Glastonbury music festival.

The competition offers performers from any musical genre the chance to follow in the footsteps of previous ETC entrants, who include Stornoway, Scouting For Girls, Treetop Flyers, the Golden Silvers, Ellen and the Escapades, the Subways and, last year, Bridie Jackson and the Arbour.

To enter the 2014 competition, performers can enter for one week only between Monday 20th – Monday 27th January 2014 via the Glastonbury Festival website.

Glastonbury’s co-organiser Emily Eavis said, “We get very excited about new music, and the Emerging Talent Competition is just a brilliant way for us to discover fresh talent. Our stage bookers come down to the live finals, and dozens of the acts who’ve entered over the years have been given a slot at the Festival. We can’t wait to see what this year’s competition brings!”

In order to enter the Emerging Talent 2014 competition, acts will need to supply a link to an original song on SoundCloud along with a link to a video of themselves performing live.

Once the entries are in, a panel of around 40 of the UK’s top online music writers will help compile a longlist of 120 acts. The longlist will then be whittled down to a shortlist of 8 artists by judges including Glastonbury organisers Michael and Emily Eavis, before a live final showcase in April decides the winning act.
