Glastonbury Looking for New Talent for 2009

Glastonbury has run a competition for the last four festivals to give up-and-coming bands a shot at indie stardom and 2009 sees the return of the emerging talent competition (ETC).

The competition website is open until the 26th January 2009 for artists and bands to upload two of their best tracks. The top 12 Acts will go forward to a series of live finals in March 2009.

The winner will get the opportunity to play on one of the main stages at the world renowned Festival in June 2009.

The competition will be judged by a team of music experts including organisers Michael and Emily Eavis, Radio 1's Huw Stephens and music journalists from Q Magazine.

For the first time, the public will also be able to decide one 'wild card' entry into the finals.

That act, voted for online, will then be guaranteed a slot at the Queen's Head venue at the festival as well as having a chance to win a slot on the Pyramid or Other Stage.

Glastonbury's emerging talent competition is open to musicians not signed to a major label, based in the UK and Ireland.
