Izzy Bizu is Glastonbury Bound!

BIMM London alumni is runner up in emerging talent competition

Congratulations to BIMM London alumni, Izzy Bizu, who was one of two runners-up for Glastonbury Festival’s 2014 Emerging Talent Competition.

The finals of the competition took place on Saturday 5th April at Pilton Working Men’s Club.

Eight finalists battled it out for a chance to perform on one of the main stages at this year’s festival.

Izzy was pipped to the post by M+A but didn’t leave empty handed, winning a performance slot at the festival, as well as a cheque for £2,500 from PRS For Music.

Izzy was chosen as a finalist from hundreds of artists who submitted entries to the competition. A longlist of 120 performers was compiled initially by some of the UK’s finest online music writers, before being whittled down to just eight top acts by an expert judging panel. Our congratulations go to BIMM acts Fickle Friends and The Cadbury Sisters who also fought tough competition to make the longlist alongside Izzy.
