American singer Billie Eilish has been announced as the headliner for the 2022 edition of one of the most important British festivals, Glastonbury.
Emily Eavis, the organizer of the Worthy Farm event, confirmed on Monday that the 20-year-old artist will be “the youngest solo headliner in our history.” The festival was founded in 1970.
“It seems like the perfect way for us to come back and I can’t wait,” she added.
Eilish will also be the first woman headliner after Adele, at the 2016 edition, although Taylor Swift had been hired to sing in 2020, but due to the pandemic, the festival was canceled.
Glastonbury did not take place this year either, and the organizers chose to present a virtual event with artists such as Coldplay, Wolf Alice and Jorja Smith.
Eilish’s first appearance in Glastonbury in 2019, when she sang on a secondary stage in front of 40,000 people, was praised by critics as “fascinating” and “uplifting”.
Since then, she has won several trophies, including Grammy and Brit, with her debut album, “When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go,” and recently returned to the top of the charts with her new album, “Happier Than Ever ”.
Last week, the artist was in London, at the world premiere of “No Time to Die”, for which she wrote the musical theme.
Eilish will be 20 years and 6 months old when he takes the Pyramid stage in June 2022, three months longer than Mark Hamilton, a member of the Northern Irish band Ash, who was headlining in 1997.
