Glastonbury Emerging Talent Contest


Perform on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival 2011 by entering this year’s emerging talent contest.

You have just two days left to register your act for the competition giving new, unsigned musicians from the UK and Ireland the chance to compete for a main stage slot at this year’s event. Acts from any musical genre can follow in the footsteps of previous ETC entrants, who include Stornoway, Scouting For Girls, We Have Band, the Golden Silvers, the Subways and last year’s winners Ellen and the Escapade.

The deadline for entries is Monday (January 17th) but all you have to do is complete the entry form on the official website, here. You simply need to supply a direct link to a web page to hear at least one of your songs – it could be on MySpace, your official site, YouTube, SoundCloud – anywhere online!

Once the entries are in, a newly-recruited panel of 40 of the UK’s best music bloggers will help compile a longlist of 120 acts. The longlist will then be whittled down to a shortlist of 10 artists by judges including Glastonbury organisers Michael and Emily Eavis, before the live finals in April decides the winning act.

Good luck!
