the GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL have announced their annual 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 from PRS 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. 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). So get cracking! It works!
