Whispers circulating that Billie Eilish is set to headline Glastonbury 2022, in addition to Queens of the Stone Age being positioned as Other Stage headliners on the same night
Billie Eilish has been added to the rumour mill and positioned as the headliner for the Friday night at Glastonbury Festival when it finally returns in 2022.
Whispers of a possible Glastonbury Festival performance have been circling the web this morning (August 10), 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 is telling him that Queens of the Stone Age will be headlining the Other stage on the same night – saying: “had some info, that should be well sourced. ~~Billie, E headlining Friday with qotsa on other at the sae time.” (see screenshot below).
This follows the American singer-songwriter recently adding another extra date to her 2022 UK tour due to “overwhelming demand”, after tickets for the previously announced shows sold out, saying: “Due to overwhelming demand, Billie has added a sixth and final show in London at the O2 Arena on Jun 26. Tickets go on sale Friday, Aug 13 at 9am BST.”

Furthermore, in response to the newly fueled rumours, a camper who recently stayed at Glastonbury’s Worthy Pastures mentioned on Twitter that Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis asked their group what they thought of Billie Eilish.
Was at Worthy Pastures the other week and Michael Eavis asked a group of us what we thought of Billie Eilish when he was doing his mingling. Could have been due the album just coming out but I had my fingers crossed there was more to it!

Eilish last played Glastonbury in 2019, in what was dubbed by NME as a “once-in-a-generation Glasto show”.
Queens of the Stone Age played the Worthy Farm-held event back in 2002 and then in 2011 when they headlined the Other Stage on the Sunday night.
Meanwhile, rumours of Diana Ross possibly being set to play Glastonbury 2022 have also recently intensified following the American singer / actress rescheduled UK tour dates, with Crowded House being the most recent big-scale band to self-confirm for the Festival’s 2022 bill thus far – You can view our updated list of all the latest line-up rumours here.
Glastonbury was forced to cancel both its 2020 and 2021 editions due to the coronavirus pandemic, and most recently also had to axe its September Equinox gig idea “for a number of reasons”, one being in order to focus on the site’s ‘Worthy Pastures’ camping site – a one year only family-friendly campsite at Worthy Farm this summer, set to take place from 23rd July to 31st August 2021.
Worthy Pastures was announced in April, with the farm being opened purely as a public camping site for the summer. A statement said: “with no Festival taking place on Worthy Farm for a second consecutive year in 2021, Michael and Emily Eavis are pleased to invite campers, for one year only, to experience the farm in a way you’ve never been able to before.”
