Glastonbury Festival - Finalists Announced For Emerging Talent Competition 2013

Glastonbury's Emerging Talent Competition gives new, unsigned artists from the UK and Ireland the chance to compete for a main stage slot at this year's Glastonbury. These eight finalists were selected by judges from the long list of 120 artists which was compiled by 40 blogger judges, who themselves chose their selections from 8,000 entries.

The eight finalists are as follows:
A Band Called Wanda
Black Balloons
Bridie Jackson & Arbour
The Dancers
Isaiah Dreads
Lillian Todd Jones
Port Isla
Rhys Lloyd Morgan

Emily Eavis said: "This year the standard was particularly high and we had a real struggle to cut it down to only 8 finalists, but we are extremely happy with the finalists and have had them on repeat here in the farmhouse for the last few days. We look forward to the live finals next month. Thank you to everyone who entered - and to our amazing panel of blogger judges for narrowing down the thousands of entrants to such a great long list."

The live finals will take place at Pilton Working Men's Club on Saturday 6th April, 2013. As in previous years, they will stream live on the official Glastonbury website,
The winning act will then get the chance to play a main stage set at this year's festival.
