Spotlight Kid are through to the next round of the Glastonbury competition….
We are very pleased and excited to announce the 123 acts who’ve made it to the longlist of our 2011 Emerging Talent Competition. These acts have all been chosen by our blogger judging panel, made up of the UK’s finest music bloggers – a massive thanks to them for all their hard work and to all of the acts who entered the competition (we were genuinely blown away by the response).
Later this week, these acts will be narrowed down to a shortlist of just 8 acts who will compete at April’s live finals for a main stage slot at this year’s Festival. They will be chosen by the final judging panel which consists of the following 10 judges: Michael Eavis (Glastonbury organiser), Emily Eavis (Glastonbury organiser), Nick Dewey (main stages programmer), Martin Elbourne (main stages programmer), Malcolm Haynes (Dance Village programmer), Steve Symons (West Holts programmer), Philippa Aylott (Radio One producer), Angus Baskerville (live agent), Paul Charles (agent/promoter/manager) and Chris Salmon (music journalist).
