Glastonbury new talent streamed live

g078The eight finalists of the 2013 Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition will all be live on stage on Saturday 6th April at the Pilton Working Men’s Club – and the whole shebang will be streamed live on the Glastonbury Festival website. The eight finalists are: A Band Called WandaBlack BalloonsBridie Jackson & ArbourThe DancersIsaiah DreadsLillian Todd JonesPort Isla and Rhys Lloyd Morgan.

The eight acts were selected by Glastonbury judges from the long list of 120 artists which was compiled by 40 blogger judges, who themselves chose their selections from over 8,000 entries. The winning act will get the chance to play a main stage set at this year’s festival.

Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis said “This year the standard was particularly high and we had a real struggle to cut it down to only 8 finalists, but we are extremely happy with the finalists and have had them on repeat here in the farmhouse for the last few days. We look forward to the live finals next month. Thank you to everyone who entered – and to our amazing panel of blogger judges for narrowing down the thousands of entrants to such a great long list.” Previous finalists include The Subways, Stornoway, Treetop Flyers, Scouting for Girls and folk hero Liz Green.
