THE 2014 EMERGING TALENT COMPETITION WINNERS ARE M+A!
Glastonbury Festival's EMERGING TALENT COMPETITION gives new, unsigned artists from the UK and Ireland the chance to compete for a slot on one of the main stages at the Festival.
For the 2014 competition, acts could enter FOR ONE WEEK ONLY, from Monday 20th January until 5pm GMT on 27th January 2014. The eight acts that made it through to the live final were: Gibson Bull, Hero-Fisher, Only Girl, M+A, FURS, The Black Tambourines, Pandr Eyez and Izzy Bizu.
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!"
Agents for artists signed to record labels wishing to play at the Festival can contact the Festival in the usual manner.
