Screen Shot 2014-01-14 at 18.44.11
Once again Glastonbury Festival are offering new and unsigned artists from across the UK and Ireland a chance to play a mainstage slot at Worthy Farm this Summer.

The entry window will be open for a week only, from January 20th until the 27th and applicants will be able to enter through the official Festival website here. With previous winners including Stornoway, The Golden Silvers and The Subways, the saying ‘once in a lifetime opportunity’ has never sounded more apt.

We can further announce that Charming Man will be helping sift through the initial entries alongside 40 of the UK’s top music writers. This will form a longlist of 120 acts, from which Michael and Emily Eavis will face the difficult task of making a shortlist of eight, who will be invited to a live final at Pilton in April.

Check out a video from 2013’s winners Bridie Jackson & The Arbour here…
