Glastonbury Festival organisers have this week announced the winner of their Emerging Talent Competition and it was Leeds-based band Ellen and the Escapades who wowed the judges. The band will appear at Glastonbury 2010 in June this year.

On the official festival website, the judges were quoted: "The standard of the acts was fantastic over the whole weekend, but in the end it was a unanimous decision. Ellen and the Escapades gave a wonderful performance, driven by great songwriting and Ellen's stunning voice. We're really looking forward to seeing them down here at the Festival in June."

Glastonbury Festival takes place between Wednesday, June 23rd and Sunday, June 27th 2010.
