After a truly memorable night of live music at Pilton Working Men’s Club, London singer Josh Barry (pictured above) was crowned the winner of our 2017 Emerging Talent Competition, which is supported by PRS for Music and the PRS Foundation. Josh 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 Josh afterwards. Listen below:

The judges – who included Michael and Emily Eavis, Glastonbury stage bookers and music business professionals – awarded the two runners-up positions to Young Yizzy and Flohio. Both MCs 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 powerful performances will be given slots at this year’s Festival.
