There’s no denying that she is certainly on a role. Billie Eilish will make history when she takes to the Pyramid Stage as Glastonbury Festival’s youngest-ever solo headliner. The Grammy-winning singer, 20, will perform alongside her brother and co-writer Finneas O’Connell. Here’s what you need to know.
Eillish made her Glastonbury debut in 2019 when she performed on the Other Stage and treated crowds to a string of tracks such as Bad Guy and You Should See Me In A Crown. In the weeks leading up to Glastonbury, Eilish has played a string of UK and European tour dates and also hosted a climate event, Overheated, at London’s O2 Arena.
Billie Eilish Is Set To Make History For This Reason
Hopefully this festival will be easier on her than the last as the chart topper took a tumble while she was at Coachella. The 20-year-old Oscar winner played an explosive set that involved the use of a crane as well as wholesome touches, including a duet with her brother and co-writer Finneas and a compilation of home videos.
Finishing up one of her numbers, Eilish cried out, then laughed, declaring: “You guys, I just ate s*** up here. It was dark, it was pitch black (and) I tripped on the f****** fire thing. Ow! I went … and fell right on my face.”
While performing her song Ocean Eyes, written when she was just 13, Eilish was raised 20ft into the air on a mechanical platform and hovered above the crowd as she sang. She also brought out Paramore singer Hayley Williams as a surprise guest to perform a rendition of Misery Business, and later helped to close the set.
Back in 2021, the chart topper also opened up about her body struggles. Eilish spoke about her insecurities which are exacerbated by social media comparison, even though she knows many of the images have been retouched. “I see people online, looking like I’ve never looked,” she said. “And immediately I am like, ‘oh my God, how do they look like that?’ I know the ins and outs of this industry, and what people actually use in photos, and I actually know what looks real can be fake.”
