We are pleased to announced that Neonfiller.com has been selected as one of 40 online music websites to take part in the judging for the Glastonbury Festival emerging talent competition.
The prize is a main stage slot at this year’s festival. Entry is free but bands have to be quick as the competition is only open from 9am Thursday 17 January to 5pm Thursday 24th January. More information about how to enter can be found here.
As a judge Neonfiller.com’s co-editor Joe Lepper will help compile a long list of 120 acts by sifting through tracks over the coming weeks and listing his favourite three acts.
The long list will then be whittled down further to just eight by a judging panel including organisers Michael and Emily Eavis ahead of a live final showcase in April.
Joe will be blogging regularly on Neonfiller.com throughout the judging process with articles about the acts that have impressed him. His role as a judge also means he will be attending and reviewing this year’s festival.
Previous winners have included Stornoway, The Subways and Ellen and the Escapades.
