Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O'Connell – you can see why she goes by 'Billie Eilish' – made her Glastonbury debut in 2019 when she performed on the Other Stage and treated audiences to a hits such as Bad Guy and You Should See Me In A Crown. Now, just three years later, she moved up to the Pyramid Stage.

"It makes you doubt everybody because you’re like, 'Why would you choose me?' But with that being said, that’s why I’m even more excited about it and stoked to be the youngest headliner ever," Eilish told Apple Music 1's Glastonbury special.

Eilish's performance started simple with just her, her drummer and her music producer brother on stage. It was a pared down show to begin with, with an intimate feel throughout, despite the scale of the audience, which exploded into life by the end. Quite the sight to behold.
