After a night of sparkling live performances at Pilton Working Men’s Club, Hastings singer-songwriter Marie White (pictured above) was named the winner of the Glastonbury Festival 2019 Emerging Talent Competition, which is supported by PRS for Music and PRS Foundation. Marie wins a slot on one of the Festival’s main stages, plus a £5,000 Talent Development prize from the PRS Foundation.

The judges – who included Michael and Emily Eavis, Glastonbury stage bookers and music business professionals – awarded second place to MC Che Lingo and third place to electro-pop group Swimming Girls. Both acts receive a £2,500 Talent Development prize from the PRS Foundation.

While announcing the winners, Michael Eavis also revealed that all eight acts on a night of powerful performances will be given slots at this year’s Festival.

Here are Jason Bryant’s photos from a wonderful night at the Working Men’s Club.
