Glastonbury announce Emerging Talents Competition finalists

The finalists for this year's Glastonbury Emerging Talents Competitions are - Declan McKenna, MoD, Princess Slayer, Lucy Kitchen, Isaac Lee-Kronick, Shields, Jakl and K.O.G. & the Zongo Brigade.

The eight acts were selected by Glastonbury judges from the longlist of 120 artists which was compiled by 40 of the UK’s best online music writers, who chose their selections from thousands of entries.

Said Emily Eavis:
"We've been blown away by the interest in the competition this year. To have more than 6,000 acts from the UK and Ireland enter is just incredible. Our team of judges did a fantastic job of whittling all those entries down to 120 acts, and it certainly wasn't easy for us to choose eight finalists from the longlist. But I'm really excited about the quality and variety of the eight acts we've ended up with. I'm really looking forward to seeing them play at the live finals."
