19-year-old pop singer Billie Eilish broke a number of records in her short career. Now, when she goes on stage at the 2022 event, she will be the youngest solo headliner in history at the Glastonbury Festival.
Irish made fun of the news on Instagram on Sunday and posed in a Glastonbury hoodie with a photo titled “2022”. The festival organizers confirmed on Monday that an American singer would perform on June 24th.
“This feels like the best way for us to come back and I can’t wait!” Said organizer Emily Evis.
Last year it was planned to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its founding, but it was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. This year we hosted a 5-hour live stream event featuring Coldplay, Damon Albarn and more.
Eilish has taken the world by storm since it first appeared on the scene with its debut single “Ocean Eyes” in 2015. The young singer has since won a Grammy Award for Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist.
Irish made its Glastonbury debut in 2019 at a five-day music festival in Somerset, South West England, after the set was upgraded from a slot on the John Peel stage.
Her name became even more talked about recently when she became the youngest star to write and record the James Bond theme song released last month. She was one of the stars at the world premiere of the “No Time to Die” Bond movie in London last week.
Irish will be 20 years and 6 months old when he heads the festival in June 2022.
