‘A Dark Day’ for US Women’ was Billie Eilish’s headline performance at the Glastonbury Pyramid Stage this weekend, making her the youngest solo performer at the festival. Eilish, a 20-year-old multi-Grammy winner, performed hit songs such as ‘Bury a Friend’ and ‘Bad Guy’. During the performance, the young pop star addressed the crowd and dedicated her song Your Power to abused women. The pop star said she felt “unworthy” of being headlining Glastonbury but still appreciated the support.

During her headline set at Glastonbury 2019, Billie Eilish made a resounding statement against the decision. She said “I cannot bear to think of the dark day for women in the United States” and later continued to perform her hit songs ‘Bad Guy’ and ‘Happier Than Ever’. But she didn’t directly reference the Supreme Court decision. Rather, she was speaking out for all women across the US – and the world.

In light of this, Glastonbury festival will hold its 50th anniversary, and this year Billie Eilish has taken centre stage. After her debut Glastonbury performance, Eilish is already a rising star. The singer’s ‘Anxiety Is Everything’ video has received rave reviews and is already being remade.

At Glastonbury, Libertines kicked off proceedings on Saturday afternoon. The group will play on the Other stage, which is one level down from the Pyramid. The Ukrainian President Zelenskiy, meanwhile, addressed the crowd at Glastonbury in an appeal to spread the word about the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The festival also features performances by Paul McCartney, Diana Ross, and Kendrick Lamar. The event attracts tens of thousands of attendees from around the world.
