Glastonbury chief Michael Eavis has announced that the Festival will hold a competition for musicians, with winners being offered a chance to play on one of the main stages at Glastonbury Festival 2004!
[r-zone1]At times in the past the Festival has been overwhelmed with the number of
music demos from performers hoping to play at the Festival. Sadly it is not
always possible to listen to all of them or arrange a slot for them even at
one of the smaller venues.
This competition is a unique opportunity for new and emerging acts to showcase
their talent. The Competition is open to all musicians, be they solo artists
or bands. Winners will get one of the reserved slots either on the Acoustic
Stage, the Dance Tent, the New Tent, or the World Stage, with the overall winner
appearing on the Other Stage.
The Festival has arranged for people to listen to three tracks from all applicants’ CDs – so
every entry will be considered. Six acts will be selected for each slot and
will play live at the Finals of the competition, to be held at the Pilton Working
Men’s Club on 23rd, 24th, 30th April and 1st May 2004.
An entry form can be downloaded from the Festival website www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk or obtained from the Glastonbury Festival Office at 28 Northload Street in
Glastonbury – 01458 834596. All demos must be received before March 1st
to be considered.
