The Glastonbury Festival are inviting new bands/acts from across the UK and Ireland to enter their “2011 Emerging Talent Competition“.

To enter visit the Glasto site here, and submit a link to your music, along with the details of your “best” track.  Entries are open until 5pm on Monday, 17th January 2011 with the winners performing on the main stage. Its FREE to enter and open to all musical styles.

Music Like Dirt is one of 40 music blogs who’ll be hitching up their trousers and getting their teeth fixed in order to help judge the 1000’s of entrants.
120 bands will then go onto a longlist which 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 decide the winning act.
