The American singer-songwriter posted a story to Instagram which leaves little room for doubt
Billie Eilish appears to have self-confirmed for playing Glastonbury 2022.
The American singer-songwriter posted a story to her Instagram account this evening (October 3) depicting herself smiling while wearing a Glastonbury Festival hoodie alongside the writing “2022” (see screenshot below).
This comes after already strong rumours had placed Eilish as the Friday night headliner for Glastonbury 2022.
Whispers of a possible Glastonbury Festival performance had been circling the web for a couple of months now, after eFestivals website founder, Neil Greenway, suggested the possibility of the American singer-songwriter taking to the Pyramid Stage next year , adding that his source was also telling him that Queens of the Stone Age are set to be headlining the Other Stage on the same (Friday) night.
Billie Eilish last played Glastonbury in 2019, in what was dubbed by NME as a “once-in-a-generation Glasto show”.
Glastonbury have yet to officially confirm the news, which would make Eilish the first name on the 2022 line-up.
It will be the festival’s first edition back since 2019, with 2020’s event due to be headlined by Paul McCartney, Kendrick Lamar and Taylor Swift.
With the cancellation of both Glastonbury 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus crisis, one could speculate that a lot of the acts which had been booked for 2020 will roll over to 2022 – As Festival founder Michael Eavis hinted back in August that the “big names” who were set to play at Glastonbury in 2020 are being lined up for next year’s event.
Meanwhile, the first line-up taster for Glastonbury 2022 will probably not be unveiled by the Festival’s officials until the end of March/beginning of April, with the full line-up usually being unveiled towards the end of May.
That being said, there are many artists who ‘self-confirm’ prior to the official announcements, by divulging the news during interviews, via social media or website listings.
The most recent big-scale artists added to the Glasto rumour mill – in addition to Billie Eilish and Queens of the Stone Age – include Diana Ross and Elton John, who have both also been heavily rumoured to be performing in 2022.
Additionally, Crowded House, have recently self-confirmed for playing Glastonbury 2022 and Noel Gallagher, said he will be up for playing if asked.
