the last month some of the UK’s top music writers have been meticulously whittling down their list of unsigned bands as part of the Glastonbury Festival Emerging Talent Competition.

Each site has now nominated their three entries that forms a longlist of 120 acts, from which a final eight will be chosen to battle it out in a live final at Pilton Working Mens Club this April. The prize at stake is a mainstage slot at this years festival, although last years winners Bridie Jackson & The Arbour ended up playing five sets across the weekend.

Previous winners have included Stornoway, The Subways and The Golden Silvers, so this chance could shoot an unsigned act into a once in a lifetime trajectory. Find the full list right here.

Take a look at ‘The Dancers’ some finalists from last year to get a taste of the calibre of talent.
