the weekend following the Glastonbury lineup announcement, eight varied acts came a stones throw from the Worthy Farm site to play it out in a battle of the bands styled live final. The stake being a £5000 PRS prize and a mainstage slot at this years festival. Here’s our rundown of the top three.

Izzy Bizu

Opening with a stripped down set of soulful vocals, this nineteen year old brought a charming mix of funk rhythm to the stage, her confidence landing her a place in joint second.

The Black Tambourines 

Closing the night, The Black Tambourines rocked into the final three with a ruthless brand of bitchy punk. This ‘Art is Hard’ bunch came sporting My Bloody Valentine jumpers and brought something completely unexpected.


London and Italian trio M+A throw off the shackles of electronic convention and bring something amusingly brilliant to the table. Their set included voice modulation, whistles and all sorts, ultimately winning over the judging panel including Huw Stephens, Micheal and Emily Eavis.
