Billy Ilish has been unveiled as one of the title works at next year’s Glastonbury Festival.
The festival has confirmed that 20-year-old Elish will be the youngest single headliner in its history.
Following in the footsteps of artists including Rilling Stone, J-Z, Adele and David Bowie, the 5-day Extravanger will perform Ilish on the Ilic Pyramid stage on Friday night.
This won’t be Hilsa’s first appearance at Glastonbury, also known simply as “Glasto” in the UK: Ilish also played on other stages in 2019.
“We couldn’t be happier to announce that the wonderful Billy Ilish is heading to the Pyramids on Friday at next year’s Glastonbury Festival, becoming the youngest single headliner in our history,” said Glastonbury co-organizer Emily Evis. “That seems like the perfect way to get us back and I can’t wait!”
Hilsa recently wrote and served the theme song for the James Bond franchise as the youngest artist of all time, his track “No Time to Die”. He recently revealed that he spent time writing the Covid-1 lockdown lockdown and recording a new album.
Glastonbury in 2022 will be the first in three years, with live events in 2020 and 2021 canceled due to epidemics.
An attempt was made at a virtual event in June 2021, where artists were broadcasting their sets live from the Worthy firm, even though it was surrounded by technical difficulties. Glastor’s organizers had hoped to hold a 1-day mini-concert in September but it was canceled in July.
Glastonbury runs from Wednesday, June 22 to Sunday, June 26, 2022.
