Newcomer Marie White has beaten stiff competition to become the winner of 2019’s Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition.
Announced earlier this evening (27th April), White’s success in the competition meant she walked away with a £5,000 PRS Foundation grant, alongside a confirmed appearance on one of Glastonbury’s main stages later this summer.
A total of eight acts were part of the running for the annual competition, all selected by Glastonbury judges from a longlist of 90 artists, compiled by some of the best UK online writers.
Previous ETC winners include Josh Barry, Declan McKenna and She Drew The Gun.
