THE summer just wouldn't be the summer without the legendary Glastonbury Festival.
After two years away, the annual mudfest is back THIS WEEKEND with a line-up of incredible music artists.
Who is in the Glastonbury line up?
Headlining on Friday
Billie Eilish will headline the Pyramid Stage on the Friday night on June 24, 2022 to become the Festival’s youngest ever solo headliner.
The appearance – the singer's first UK festival headline performance – follows her set on the Other Stage at Glastonbury 2019.
Festival organise Emily Eavis said: “We couldn’t be happier to announce that the wondrous Billie Eilish is headlining the Pyramid on the Friday at Glastonbury Festival, becoming the youngest solo headliner in our history.
"This feels like the perfect way for us to return and I cannot wait!”
