Billie Eilish is making headlines at Glastonbury 2022 and her performance will break records. She’s also not the only artist this year to break an unusual record
The 2022 Glastonbury Festival has come a long way with the event being canceled for 2020 and 2021 due to Covid-19.
This year was packed with talent including Kendrick Lamar, Paul McCartney, Diana Ross and many more.
This is the second time Billie Eilish, who recently revealed her Tourette diagnosis, has appeared at the legendary concert, having previously wrapped The Other Stage in 2019.
She will now lead the iconic Pyramid Stage, but that’s not the only reason why this is a special performance for the stars.
She’s not alone either, as another artist this year is breaking an unusual record.

Billie Eilish is the youngest soloist in the history of Glastonbury at the age of 20.
She is enjoying a record year, with the release of her sophomore record, Happier Than Ever, which quickly became her second UK Number 1 album.
She has recalled the festive break during Covid-19, with co-host Emily Eavis previously saying she “couldn’t be happier” as Billie made headlines.
“This is the perfect way for us to come back,” she added.
Who is the youngest artist of all time at Glastonbury?
To find the youngest artist ever to perform at Glastonbury, you need to go back to that beautiful 1997.
That year, the band Ash performed at the concert and to this day they are still the youngest acts ever to perform.
They loved the Pyramid Stage in a last-minute decision after Steve Winwood pulled out of the show.
All Ash was 19 at the time and speaking to virginradio.co.uk backstage at the Big Thank You Tour, the band looked back on their historic performance.
“We’ve done some really great shows,” said Mark Hamilton. In fact, we’ve played the Reading festival 10 times more than anyone else, and things like that are milestones. ”
Tim Wheeler added: “Maybe having a number one album when we’re 19, that’s huge. It was just a really early peak, and just to get there so young is already amazing. “
He also shared his thoughts on how Billie Eilish nearly took away their achievement.
He added: “So Billie Eilish is making headlines in Glastonbury this year, and there’s one person who can’t help but think she might be the youngest person to be featured in the headlines, but it really is us.
Who is the oldest artist at Glastonbury?
2022 is indeed a big year for Glastonbury, as it is not only one of the youngest performances ever, but also the oldest.
Paul McCartney is heading to the Pyramid Stage for one of the concert’s biggest gigs.
At the age of 80, he is the oldest person to ever step foot in front of a huge crowd of 200,000 people.
There are few achievements more deserving than the one that elevated his legendary career.
