April 28, 2024


After a truly wonderful night of live music at Pilton Working Men’s Club, Cambridge-born, Jamaican-Irish rapper and singer JayaHadADream was named the winner of our 2024 Emerging Talent Competition, which is supported by PRS for Music and the PRS Foundation.

JayaHadADream 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 Emily Eavis, Glastonbury stage bookers and music business professionals – gave the two runners-up places to singer-songwriter Nadia Kadek and soul singer Caleb Kunle. Both acts receive a £2,500 Talent Development prize from the PRS Foundation.

While announcing the winners, BBC 6 Music’s Huw Stephens also confirmed that all eight acts on a night of powerful performances will be given slots at this year’s Festival.

Here are Rick Mav’s photos from a superb night at the Working Men’s Club.
