After a wonderful night of live music at Pilton Working Men’s Club, Merseyside psych-pop four-piece She Drew The Gun (pictured above) were crowned the winners of our 2016 Emerging Talent Competition, which is supported by PRS for Music and the PRS for Music Foundation. The band wins a slot on one of the Festival’s main stages, plus a £5,000 Talent Development prize from the PRS Foundation.
Worthy FM captured the moment the winner was announced, and spoke to the band afterwards. Listen below:
The judges – who included Michael and Emily Eavis, Glastonbury stage bookers and music business professionals – awarded second place to Glasgow’s party-starting R&B pop act Bossy Love, with third place going to London-based folk singer Hattie Whitehead. Both acts receive a £2,500 Talent Development prize from the PRS Foundation.
While announcing the winners, Michael Eavis also revealed that all eight acts on a night of impressive performances will be given slots at this year’s Festival.
Here are Jason Bryant’s photos from a fantastic night at the Working Men’s Club.
