Billie Eilish becomes youngest performer to headline Coachella
Björk, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Ariana Grande and now Billie Eilish.
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival started in California and Billie Eilish made history. She was the fifth woman to headline the festival since it was first held in October 1999. The 20-year-old also became its youngest headliner after performing a 90-minute show on Saturday night.
Billie Eilish adds to her historic career when she appears at Coachella.
Eilish addressed her historic moment during her performance, telling the crowd, “I shouldn’t be the headliner of this shit!” She continued, “But I’m so grateful to be here and that you’re all here. It’s such a dream come true. I feel crazy. She also closed the show by saying, ‘Thank you, Coachella! I’m sorry I’m not Beyoncé. Love you good night.”
His appearance was packed with guests. Although several of his concerts include appearances from his brother Finneas, the evening also saw appearances from Khalid, Pos and Damon Albarn. Khalid helped Eilish perform their duet “Lovely” in 2018. Damon Albarn, made a rare appearance, as the lead singer of Blur and Gorillaz.
While Eilish will also return to the Coachella stage on Saturday April 23 to complete her festival appearance, she will once again make history as Glastonbury Festival’s youngest headliner. The festival is considered one of the largest in the world and is a five-day music festival held in England.
She adds her accomplishments to her recent Oscar for Best Song, which she won for the film’s ‘No Time to Die’ no time to die.
