Billie performed at the festival in 2019 on The Other Stage, and will take to the main stage at Glastonbury next year.

During her first performance, she said, “It’s like the whole world is watching me right now.”

The Glastonbury Festival has been canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Although the restrictions were lifted in June this year, the festival did not take place as the organizers did not have enough time to organize it.
