**CONTEST TO WIN A GLASTONBURY SLOT OPENS ON MONDAY**
Hello - and happy new year!
We're very pleased to announce details of our 2011 EMERGING TALENT
COMPETITION, which will give new, unsigned musicians from the UK and
Ireland the chance to compete for a main stage slot at this year's
Festival. 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 last year's winners
Ellen and the Escapades.
For the 2011 competition, acts will be able to enter FOR ONE WEEK ONLY
from Monday, 10th January until Monday, 17th January 2011 via an entry
form on our official website, http://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk
. Entries for ETC2011 will be FREE. To enter, you will simply need to
supply us with a direct link to a web page where we can hear at least
one of your songs (MySpace, official site, YouTube, SoundCloud etc).
Once the entries are in, a newly-recruited 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 10 artists by
judges including Glastonbury organisers Michael and Emily Eavis,
before the live finals in April decides the winning act.
We look forward to hearing the entries!
