Glastonbury 2023 Emerging Talent Competition

Glastonbury 2023 Emerging Talent Competition

Monday, 6 February 2023, 5.00pm

The Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition gives 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 Foundation to help take their songwriting and performing to the next level. Two runners-up will also each be awarded a £2,500 PRS Foundation Talent Development prize.

Acts from any musical genre can enter the 2023 competition FOR ONE WEEK ONLY using the form which will be available at the link below from 9am Monday 30th January until 5pm Monday 6th February 2023.

To enter, acts needed to supply a YouTube link to one original song, 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 30 of the UK’s best music writers will help compile a longlist of 90 acts. The longlist will then be narrowed down to a shortlist of eight artists by judges including Glastonbury organisers Michael and Emily Eavis, before the live finals in Pilton decide the winning act.

See link below for further details.
