This year, 2011, I am going to be one of the 40 UK bloggers who will be judging the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition! I am incredibly excited about this, it was wonderful to be asked and I can’t wait to get started. It will involve me listening to lots of the acts that enter the competition and then choosing my favourites who will then be wittled down by a panel of judges including Michael and Emily Eavis and the top 10 will play at the Pilton Working Men’s club in April, before the final winner is announced. That winner will then get the opportunity to play one of the main stages at Glastonbury- a fantastic opportunity for an emerging band. Past winners include The Subways, Stornoway, Scouting for Girls, We have Band and last years winners Ellen and the Escapades.
Go to the Glastonbury website to find out more and how to enter if you are an artist! I will be blogging some of my journey through the judging so watch out for that. There is also 39 other lovely bloggers who will be judging the competition with me. The list can be found on the link above to the Glastonbury website and includes the likes of Anika in London, For Folk’s Sake, Breaking More Waves, We Write Lists and Wears the Trousers. All wonderful blogs!
Heres a a few videos of past winners…
Currently in the middle of writing a massive Ones to Watch for 2011 post, hopefully that will come later today!
