YOUR CHANCE TO PERFORM AT GLASTONBURY 2016
We’re very pleased to announce our EMERGING TALENT COMPETITION 2016, which will give new UK and Ireland-based acts of any musical genre the chance to compete for a slot on one of the main stages at this year’s Festival.
The winners of the free-to-enter competition will also be awarded a £5,000 Talent Development prize fromPRS for Music Foundation to help take their songwriting and performing to the next level. Two runners-up will also each be awarded a £2,500 PRS for Music Foundation Talent Development prize.
Acts from any musical genre can enter the 2016 competition FOR ONE WEEK ONLY from 9am Monday 18th January until 5pm Monday 25th January 2016 via our official website.
To enter, acts will need to supply a link to one original song on SoundCloud – which is free to join – plus a link to a video of themselves performing live (even if it’s only recorded in a bedroom).
Once the entries are in, a panel of 40 of the UK’s top music writers will help compile a longlist of 120 acts. The longlist will then be whittled down to a shortlist of eight artists by judges including Glastonbury organisers Michael and Emily Eavis, before the live finals at Pilton Working Men’s Club in April decide the winning act. In both 2014 and 2015, all eight of the finalists were offered slots at that year’s Festival.
POETS AND SPOKEN WORD ARTISTS
Our Poetry&Words stage is also currently looking for performers for this year's Festival. If you're an experienced writer and performer, with something quite excellent to offer, then click here for the info.
