Acts will be able to enter for one week only from Monday 20-Monday 27 January 2014 via the Glastonbury website. Those looking to enter need to submit a SoundCloud link to a song and a video of a live performance.
A panel of around 40 of the UK’s top online music writers will help compile a longlist of 120 acts before a deciding live showcase will take place in April.
Emily Eavis, co-organiser of the festival, said: ‘We get very excited about new music and the Emerging Talent Competition is just a brilliant way for us to discover fresh talent.
‘Our stage bookers come down to the live finals and dozens of the acts who’ve entered over the years have been given a slot at the festival. We can’t wait to see what this year’s competition brings.’
Previous winners include Scouting for Girls, the Subways and the Golden Silvers.
