The competition offers unsigned artists from Ireland and the UK a chance to perform at the festival.
The major British music festival, which will take place at the end of June, has announced details of this year's Emerging Talent Competition on its website today.
The competition offers unsigned British and Irish musicians, from any genre, the chance to appear onstage at Glatonbury Festival. The winners will be awarded a £5,000 Talent Development prize from the PRS Foundation, while two runners-up will also receive £2,500.
If you’re interested, act fast – the competition is only open for one week, from 9am January 28 to 5pm February 4.
To enter, musicians will need a link to one original song on SoundCloud, as well as a video of a live performance.
A shortlist of eight acts, chosen by a panel of industry experts, will perform at a live final in April. In the pervious four competitions, all eight finalists were offered Glastonbury slots.
Previous finalists of the Emerging Talent Competition have included Declan McKenna, who went on to release a successful debut album with Columbia in 2017, and Izzy Bizu, the winner of the BBC Music Introducing Award in 2016 and a Brit Critics’ Choice Award nominee in 2015.
