LONDON (AP) – Pop singer Billie Eilish, 19, has broken many records during her short career. Now she will become the youngest solo headliner at the Glastonbury Festival when she takes the stage at the 2022 event.
Eilish teased the news Sunday on Instagram, posing with a Glastonbury hoodie in a photo captioned “2022”. Festival organizers confirmed on Monday that the American singer will perform on June 24.
“It seems like the perfect way for us to come back and I can’t wait!” said organizer Emily Eavis.
The festival was supposed to celebrate its 50th anniversary last year, but it was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. This year, he hosted a five-hour live event featuring Coldplay and Damon Albarn, among others.
Eilish has taken the world by storm since breaking onto the scene in 2015 with her debut single “Ocean Eyes”. The young singer has since won Grammys for Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist.
Eilish made her Glastonbury debut in 2019 after her set was upgraded by one place on the John Peel stage during the five-day music festival held in Somerset, southwest England .
Eilish is also the youngest performer to write and record a James Bond theme song. She was among the stars at the world premiere of the film “No Time To Die” in London last week.
Eilish will be 20 years and 6 months old when she headlines the Gastonbury Festival in June 2022.
This story corrects an erroneous reference to the release of Eilish’s James Bond theme song. It wasn’t last month.
