We’re very pleased to announce the eight acts that have made it through to the live final of our 2014 Emerging Talent Competition. They are: Gibson Bull, Hero-Fisher, Only Girl, M+A, FURS, The Black Tambourines, Pandr Eyez and Izzy Bizu. You can hear all eight finalists on the player below:
The eight acts were selected by Glastonbury judges from the longlist of 120 artists which was compiled by 40 of the UK’s best online music writers, who chose their selections from thousands of entries.
Said Emily Eavis: "We’re so proud of this shortlist. It was really hard to get it down to just eight acts – the standard this year was incredible – but I think we’ve whittled it down to a really strong final eight. I’d like to say a big thanks to everyone who entered, and to our team of judges for narrowing it down to 120 acts. Now bring on the live final!"
This year’s invite-only final will take place at Pilton Working Men’s Club on Saturday 5th April, 2014. The winning act will be given a slot on one of the main stages at this year’s festival.
