One week left to enter Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition 2010

Last week Glastonbury Festivals announced another band to be added to the confirmed performers at this year’s prestigious 40th anniversary Festival.

East Londoners My Luminaries were chosen from hundreds of artists who entered the Glastonbury ETC before the end of last year, to play the Queen’s Head Stage at this year’s Festival.

Producer of the Queen’s Head Stage, Dave Henderson said of the winning band:

"With their heady mix of great melody lines and infectious hooks, it sounds like My Luminaries have the coolest record collection ever. We're really looking forward to seeing them at the Festival."

The last week of the main competition is upon us, and anyone looking to win the ultimate prize of a set on the Pyramid or Other stage in 2010 is urged to upload their tracks by the Monday 25th January deadline.

As usual, the entries will be judged by a team of music experts representing the Festival (Michael and Emily Eavis), BBC Radio One (Huw Stephens) and Q Magazine (editor Paul Rees). The judges will be responsible for picking 11 of the finalists, with 10 runners-up put to a public vote to secure the final 12th spot. Those 12 will go on to perform at the competition finals in Pilton, which take place in front of another all star judging panel, including many of Glastonbury’s main stage programmers.

Keep your eye on the Glastonbury Festival website towards the middle of February for details of how to vote for your favourite artist in their battle to compete for that last place at the finals.

To enter the ETC, bands and performers must not be signed to a major label and should be based in the UK or Ireland. Acts should upload two of their tracks to, which is open until 25th January 2010. Each entry costs £11.95, which covers the running costs of the competition and the event finals. The live finals will be held at the end of March 2010.
