Let’s cut to the chase: of course you want to play at Glastonbury Festival. It’s Glastonbury Festival. You want to play there because you are a human being with eyes, a heart and a brain.
So: enter the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition now. Go on. You only have a few days left, so hop to it, sunshine.
Entering it gives you not only the chance to play at Glastonbury, but a big hefty wedge of #cash #money via the PRS for Music Foundation Talent Development prize.
Also, I’m one of the judges, so if you enter a song with a pun in the title and/or a reference to 90s pop-house chart hits, you’re in with a chance.
It’s given a hefty leg-up to some of the best bands about, too: old ANBAD faves Bridie Jackson and the Arbour were hugely deserved winners a couple of years ago.
Glastonbury’s Emily Eavis regards the Emerging Talent competition as a hugely important part of Glastonbury’s remit, saying: “The Emerging Talent Competition is always an incredible way for us to find fresh talent from across the musical spectrum.
“In fact, eight of the acts that entered in 2014 ended up with slots at Glastonbury 2014. I can’t wait to hear who we discover this year.”
Hey, what more encouragement do you need? Enter here, the deadline is Monday the 26th January!
