Glastonbury is one of the biggest U.K festivals with a footfall ranging from 200,000 to 300,000 people. There’s something about Billie Eilish that makes the crowd go after her. Be it her music or her personality, the 17-year-old became famous in the blink of an eye.
Billie gave the inaugural performance at Glastonbury which attracted people of all ages. There were babies strapped on the backs, and 70-year-olds also came out to enjoy Eilish’s heartfelt performance. At such a young age, Billie addresses issues that make people uncomfortable. Adolescent suicides, mental health issues, loneliness are some issues that Billie touches upon.
Billie Eilish started her performance with ‘Bad Guy’ and with her brother Finneas on the keyboards. The singer went insane on the stage and encouraged her fans to dance with her. The overzealous performance made everyone loosen up and her fans jumped and danced together. She also requested her fans to keep their phones away. She wanted them to ‘live in the moment.’
Billie is extremely considerate when it comes to curating songs for her performances. Without giving it second thoughts, the singer dedicated her song “idontwannabeyouanymore” to those who despise themselves. Its meaningful lyrics hit us hard, but as we all know, Billie has always been too real.
Her Glastonbury performance attracted thousands of people. Apparently, 40,000 people were present in the arena while Billie was performing. According to statistics, Billie’s performance saw people as many as Miley’s Glastonbury solo.
Billie in her baggy clothes and her extremely real lyrics make us feel like we all relate to her. She’s only 17 and extremely talented.
