In April, the live finals of our 2015 Emerging Talent Competition took place in Pilton, with Declan Mckenna crowned the winner. Declan won a slot on one of the Festival’s main stages, plus a £5,000 Talent Development prize from the PRS Foundation. The judges gave second place to Newcastle’s Shields, with Sheffield’s K.O.G. and the Zongo Bridage taking third place. Both acts received a £2,500 Talent Development prize from the PRS Foundation.
Happily, the broadcast students from Solent University were on hand to capture all eight acts, and you can see a song from each of them below. We’re pleased to confirm that all eight will be performing various slots at Glastonbury 2015, notably on Thursday when all eight of them will play at the Rabbit Hole.
