The Final Eight




The eight finalists of the 2013 Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition have been announced. Disappointingly none of the three acts selected by the Devil have made the final cut but, as in previous years, the final 8 are all excellent and it is really difficult to assess which of them will win.

The live finals will take place at Pilton Working Men's Club on Saturday 6th April, 2013. As in previous years, they will stream live on the official Glastonbury website, www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk. The winning act will then get the chance to play a main stage set at this year's festival.

So who are the illustrious 8 who have made the cut from the 8,000 or so acts that entered and which do you think will emerge victorious...
