Glastonbury Festival 2014

Emerging Talent Competition 2011

The 2011 EMERGING TALENT COMPETITION will give new, unsigned artists from the UK and Ireland the chance to compete for a main stage slot at this year's Festival. Acts from any musical genre can follow in the footsteps of previous ETC entrants, who include Stornoway, Scouting For Girls, We Have Band, the Golden Silvers, the Subways and last year's winners Ellen and the Escapades.

For the 2011 competition, acts were able to enter FOR ONE WEEK ONLY from 9am on Monday, 10th January until 5pm on Monday, 17th January 2011 right here on the official website. Entries for ETC2011 were free.

Once the entries were in, a newly-recruited panel of 40 of the UK's best music bloggers (see below) helped compile a longlist of 120 acts. The longlist will then be whittled down to a shortlist of 8 artists by judges including Glastonbury organisers Michael and Emily Eavis, before the live finals in April decides the winning act.

Here is a list of the blogs our 40 blogger judges write for (some of the bigger ones are supplying more than one judge):
