Billie Eilish will go down in history as Glastonbury’s youngest solo headliner

Billie Eilish will make history when she takes the Pyramid stage on Friday night as the Glastonbury Festival’s youngest solo headliner.

The 20-year-old Grammy-winning singer will perform alongside her brother and co-writer Finneas O’Connell.

The American pop star made her Glastonbury debut in 2019 when she performed at the Other Stage and wowed the crowd with a series of tracks such as Bad Guy and You Should See Me In A Crown.

In the weeks leading up to Glastonbury, Eilish played a number of shows in the UK and Europe, as well as hosting the Overheated climate event at London’s O2 Arena.

She also topped the list at the Coachella Festival in the US in April, bringing guests Khalid and Damon Albarn to a set that thrilled fans and reviewers alike.

The weather during the performance was supposed to be dry, despite the high chance of rain in the afternoon.

Meteorological Bureau meteorologist Greg Dewhurst told the Pennsylvania News Agency: “The morning will start off quite cloudy with a few showers around, but generally on the bright side, so the start of the day will be a bit cloudy and wet. but a rather warm start with a temperature of about 16C.

“It looks like it will be drier and brighter by morning.

“There will be a few glimpses of the sun towards the start of the day, but then it looks like a streak of rain is coming in from the west in the early evening, so around 4pm there will be some light torrential rain moving east across Glastonbury. but it should clear up around 19:00.

“The rest of the evening should be dry, if the sun comes out, the temperature will be around 19°C, but compared to today’s 24°C, the day will be cooler.”

On the day that Eilish headlines Glastonbury, Sir Paul McCartney will be warming up for his Saturday headliner at a music venue in Somerset.

Thursday saw the announcement of a surprise concert at the Cheese and Grain Leisure Center in Frome, Somerset, where tickets sold out on a first-come, first-served basis in less than an hour.

Sir Paul will also go down in history as Glastonbury Festival’s oldest solo headliner when he takes the stage on Saturday.

The festival will see the former Beatle return to number one on the Pyramid Chart for the second time since performing in 2004.

It’s exactly one week after celebrating his 80th birthday and 60 years of making music.

The musical offering this year will also include Kendrick Lamar as the Sunday headliner, with Diana Ross filling the Sunday Teatime Legends slot.
