Hell! Who doesn’t? In 2010, a Glastonbury appearance helped Shouting at Planes on their way to Irish National radio play and getting lots of nice things said about them.
So are you a band/artist and think you’ve got what it takes? The Eavis’ are looking for UK and Irish bands to enter a competition to win a slot on the Main Stage. Previous winners include Scouting For Girls, The Subways and Stornoway.
How do you you enter? Here’s the blurb..
“For the 2011 competition, acts will be able to enter FOR ONE WEEK ONLY from Monday, 10th January until Monday, 17th January 2011 right here on the official website. Entries for ETC2011 will be FREE. To enter, you will simply need to supply us with a direct link to a web page where we can hear at least one of your songs (MySpace, official site, YouTube, SoundCloud etc).
Once the entries are in, a newly-recruited panel of 40 of the UKs best music bloggers will help compile a longlist of 120 acts. The longlist will then be whittled down to a shortlist of 10 artists by judges including Glastonbury organisers Michael and Emily Eavis, before the live finals in April decides the winning act.
