PRS FOUNDATION MUSIC CREATORS DOMINATE GLASTONBURY 2022

This year more than 90 music creators funded by PRS Foundation are playing Glastonbury 2022!

The huge number reflects the impact PRS Foundation funding has had on the careers of so many new music creators.

From PPL Momentum Music funded Welsh-language Post-Punkers Adwaith to International Showcase Fund supported multiple Grammy nominated Black British Country singer and Auerbach collaborator Yola, (who appears as Sister Rosetta Tharpe in Baz Luhrmann’s new musical ‘Elvis’) numerous #FundedByPRSF highlights include Afrodeutsche, who also features in this year’s New Music Biennial, 2021 Mercury Prize winner Arlo Parks and Mercury nominated artists, Floating Points, Ghetts, Nubya Garcia and Wolf Alice, as well as this year’s Brit Awards Winners, Sam Fender, Wolf Alice and Little Simz.

As Glastonbury Festival returns, so too had the annual Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition (ETC) supported by PRS Foundation and PRS for Music. All 7 ETC acts including runners up Crae Wolf and English Teacher plus winner Lewis McLaughlin, will perform at Glastonbury 2022!

“​​Grant funding is more vital than ever. We’ve got a great track record of being able to give support to artists and creators when they most need it and the impact of that funding has been huge but way more so over the pandemic. It’s more important than ever now that we’re coming out of that and returning to live. There’s still a massive financial need out there” said Joe Frankland in NME.

“​​The ETC been so huge for so many different artists, the main thing is the slot at Glastonbury but we sit down with them afterwards and help them plan the next steps of their career. The instant recognition you get as the winner of this competition means having money to support that next step is really crucial. There are very few opportunities to play to all the stage bookers at Glastonbury and some external judges like Huw Stephens under one roof.

The legendary Glastonbury Festival is on until 26th Jun. Highlights can be viewed on BBC iPlayer .
