Holy Cow night launched to find Glastonbury stars of the future
- 24 October 2007
A new gig night has been launched to give new bands the opportunity to win a slot at next year’s Glastonbury Festival.
The Holy Cow night will offer new and unsigned acts a chance to impress festival organisers and kicks off with Envy Corps and Vampire Weekend at the Social club in London.
Emily Eavis, daughter of festival founder Michael Eavis, said the most impressive bands would be offered one of the smaller stages, with the hope they might become main stage stars in the future.
‘We’ve had some brilliant debut sets throughout the years, where bands start at Glastonbury on a very small stage and end up playing the Pyramid in a few years,’ she said.
Acts interested in taking part in a gig night should contact organisers through the Holy Cow MySpace site.
The next Glastonbury will take place from June 27-29 2008 in Somerset.
