She Drew The Gun have won this year's Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition. After taking part in the live finals at Pilton Working Men's Club on Saturday, the Liverpool band, who were picked for the longlist by the Quietus' Rory Gibb, took home a booking to play one of the festival's main stages as well as a £5,000 Talent Development prize from the PRS Foundation. Taking second and third places respectively were Bossy Love and Hattie Whitehead, who were both awarded a £2,500 PRS prize.
