Bridie Jackson & The Arbour win the Glastonbury Emerging Talent competition.

The Newcastle-based group will play the Pyramid Stage at this year's festival after winning the final, which took place in Pilton last night (April 6).

Posting the news on their Facebook page, the band wrote: "Apparently we won…do we have to play the Main Stage now?" You can listen to 'All You Love Is All You Are' by the group below.

Bridie Jackson & The Arbour describe themselves as a four-piece who use sparse instrumentation and intriguing vocal harmonies to create music that is simultaneously beautiful, ethereal, dark and powerful. They add that their music draws comparisons to Bjork, Fleet Foxes, Feist and flamenco.

The Emerging Talent competition offered unsigned artists from the UK and Ireland the opportunity to win a slot at the festival and perform on the iconic Pyramid Stage. The eight finalists were selected from a long-list of 120 acts compiled by a panel of 40 music bloggers acting as judges. There were 8,000 entries to the competition in total.
