What did you do when you were 19? Probably not as the headliner of an internationally known music festival. Billie Eilish has continued her meteoric rise by being confirmed as the youngest ever solo headliner at the famous Glastonbury Festival.
According to Pitchfork, the & # 39; Bad Guy & # 39; singer will headline the Friday night slot on the Pyramid Stage in 2022. She's the first headliner to be confirmed for the festival next year, and it seems like Glastonbury is looking to make up for lost time with some big names.
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in cancellations for the past two years, with a 2020 superstar lineup featuring Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift and Paul McCartney falling by the wayside.
However, it won't be the first time Eilish has attended the event as Eilish played on the Other Stage on Sunday afternoon 2019. Their set has been upgraded due to high demand from the John Peel stage.
She teased the news on her Instagram story today and posted a picture of her wearing a Glastonbury hoodie with the headline "2022". It was then confirmed by Glastonbury organizer Emily Eavis, who tweeted her excitement about the booking.
“We couldn't be happier to announce that the miraculous @billieeilish will headline the Pyramid at next year's Glastonbury Festival on Friday, making it the youngest solo headliner in our history, ”she wrote on Twitter. "This feels like the perfect way for us to return and I can't wait!"

Regardless of who has booked, fans will be happy to be back at the festival again. Glastonbury hosted a virtual version earlier this year with the likes of Coldplay and Thom Yorke, but it would never get the feeling of actually being there.
Who would you like to see play at Glastonbury next year?
