The Emerging Talent Competition entry period has now ended. Thanks to the thousands of acts who entered. Now that the entries are in, a panel of 40 of the UK's best music bloggers will help compile a longlist of 120 acts.
The longlist will then be whittled down to a shortlist of eight artists by judges including Glastonbury organisers Michael and Emily Eavis, before the live finals in Pilton in April decides the winning act.
Glastonbury Festival's EMERGING TALENT COMPETITION 2013 is giving new, unsigned artists from the UK and Ireland the chance to compete for a main stage slot at this year's Glastonbury. Acts from any musical genre can follow in the footsteps of previous ETC entrants, who include Stornoway, Scouting For Girls, We Have Band, the Golden Silvers, the Subways and the winners of the last contest, in 2011, Treetop Flyers.
Acts were able to enter FOR ONE WEEK ONLY from 9am on Thursday 17th January until 5pm on Thursday 24th January. Entries to ETC2013 were free. To enter, acts will simply needed to supply us with a link to listen to one of their songs online (on YouTube, SoundCloud, Bandcamp, etc).
Agents for artists signed to record labels wishing to play at the Festival can contact the Festival in the usual manner.
