The competition is open for one week only from 27 January.
Glastonbury Festival has announced the details of its annual emerging talent competition. Open for a week from 27 January until 3 February, the competition gives upcoming musicians and bands the opportunity to compete for a slot at this year’s 50th-anniversary event.
Supported by the PRS Foundation, the competition also awards a £5,000 prize to the winner to help kick start their music career. Two runners up will receive £2,500.
Acts must supply a link to one original song via Soundcloud, plus a link to a video of themselves performing live. After a longlist is drawn up by 30 of the UK’s leading music writers, a panel of judges, including Glastonbury organisers Michael and Emily Eavis, will choose eight acts to perform in live finals before deciding the winner.
In 2019, singer-songwriter Marie White took the winning spot and has since signed with Decca Records and Universal Music Publishing Group.
