Billie Eilish has been announced as the first headliner for Glastonbury 2022.

The star, who turns 20 in December, will also become the youngest solo act ever to headline the festival.

"We are very excited to confirm that @billieeilish will headline the Pyramid Stage on the Friday night at Glastonbury 2022, to become the Festival's youngest ever solo headliner. This will be her first UK festival headline performance," a post on the official Glastonbury Festival Instagram account reads.

Sharing the news on her own Instagram account, event organiser Emily Eavis added: "This feels like the perfect way for us to return and I cannot wait!"

Glastonbury returns in June 2022 after being delayed for two years due to the pandemic. 

Other headliners and supporting acts have not yet been announced.
