Billie Eilish becomes Coachella’s youngest headliner in the show’s 23-year-long history as she rocks the main stage on day two of the festival
Billie Eilish took over Coachella’s main stage late Saturday night as she headlined the popular festival’s second day, officially making her the youngest headliner in Coachella history.
The singer-songwriter, 20, donned an oversized white t-shirt covered in brown graffiti-like lettering for the show.
She matched it with a pair of white spandex shorts, also tinged with brown, that ended in the middle of her thigh.
The moment everyone was waiting for: Billie Eilish took over Coachella’s main stage late Saturday night as she headlined the popular festival’s second day
She added knee pads, previously white but stained brown as well, white Nike socks and matching sneakers to her look.
The Happier Than Ever singer’s long black hair fell down to her shoulders, and her bangs nearly covered her eyes.
Two small pigtails sprouted from the top of her head and stood almost straight up from the messy hairstyle.

Flexible: The Los Angeles native, who recently took home the Academy Award for Best Original Song, didn’t stay stagnant during the performance, instead showing off her athleticism
Eilish accessorized with a number of chains worn around her throat as necklaces, and long gloves that left her fingers uncovered while clinging tightly to her forearms.
The Los Angeles native, who recently took home the Academy Award for Best Original Song, didn’t stay stagnant during the performance, instead showing off her athleticism.
With the stage bathed in blood red light at one point, the bad guy songstress leaned far back while standing and early planted her hands on the ground behind her.
Another moment saw the seven-time Grammy Award winner fall into a crouch with the spotlight trained solely on her as she stared down at the stage through her legs.

History making: On top of all of her other accomplishments, Eilish’s headlining performance made her the youngest artist to headline the show in history
Coming back soon: Eilish, like all Coachella performers, is set to return to Indio Valley next week and perform all over again
On top of all of her other accomplishments, Eilish’s headlining performance made her the youngest artist to headline at the festival in its 23-year-long history, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Harry Styles headlined Friday’s festivities and The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia will headline on Sunday night.
A number of other big names such as 21 Savage, Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Lil Baby, Baby Keem, Phoebe Bridgers and many other graced or will grace the stage this weekend.
The performers will also return to Indio, California next weekend for the festival’s second weekend.

Not ready? While it’s not totally clear why Ye pulled out of the show last minute, an industry insider told Page Six that he hadn’t so much as rehearsed for the big show (pictured 2019)
Coachella’s lineup looks very different now than it did just a few weeks ago after Kanye West, now known as simply Ye, announced he was dropping out of the event.
Organizers had to scramble and were able to secure The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia, who have collaborated in the past though the shortened timeline may have made it impossible for the two popular acts to coordinate an act together.
Ye was reportedly going to perform alongside controversial artist Travis Scott who has remained relatively reclusive since the Astroworld tragedy last year that left 10 people dead.
While it’s not totally clear why Ye pulled out of the show last minute, an industry insider told Page Six that he hadn’t so much as rehearsed for the big show at the time.
Coachella 2022: Meet The Headliners
Shakeup: It was announced earlier this month that The Weeknd (seen at the Super Bowl in February 2021) alongside Swedish House Mafia would be replacing Sunday night’s headliner Kanye West
SUNDAY NIGHT: The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia
This year’s Coachella line-up featured a massive change as earlier this month it was announced that The Weekend alongside Swedish House Mafia would be replacing Sunday night’s headliner Kanye West.
The Weeknd and the house music group – consisting of Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso – have a working relationship as they collaborated on hit track Moth To A Flame together and also have the same management team SALXCO.
It remains unclear how the headlining gig will work meaning whether one will perform after the other or if they will be switching off but the publication’s sources said The Weeknd’s portion will likely be shorter given the time restraints to prepare for the show.
This will also be Swedish House Mafia’s big return to the highly-popular music festival as they have not performed at it since 2012 as they disbanded in 2013 at their absolute peak of popularity.
The Weeknd first hit the Coachella stage in 2012 and then three years later in 2015. He officially headlined the festival in 2018 with Beyonce and rapper Eminem.
No longer a Bad Guy: At just 20-years-old, Billie Eilish (seen performing in Inglewood earlier this month) is one of the biggest pop stars in the world and will be headlining day 2 of the highly-popular festival
SATURDAY NIGHT: Billie Eilish
At just 20-years-old, Billie Eilish is one of the biggest pop stars in the world and will be headlining day 2 of the highly-popular festival.
She has performed at Coachella one another time in 2019 (the last time the festival was held due to COVID-19 related postponements) which was not one of her most shining moments as she notably started her set 40 minutes late, forgot lyrics to her songs, and even tripped on stage.
Eilish spoke to V Magazine last month about the tough experience on one of the biggest stages of her career as she said: ‘I really resent the things that were surrounding me during that period of time. I had that ruined for me by a person, but that’s ok.’
She did not further clarify who that person was but based on scenes from her 2021 documentary The World’s A Little Blurry, she could be referring to then-boyfriend Brandon Adams.
The Los Angeles native may be relatively young age but she is a veteran of the music industry as she first gained public attention at the age of 13 with her debut single Ocean Eyes.
She along with her older brother and fellow artist known as FINNEAS have become one of the biggest acts in music with several chart-topping hits and award recognition including seven Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, two Guinness World Records, three MTV Video Music Awards, three Brit Awards, a Golden Globe Award and even an Academy Award.

FRIDAY NIGHT: Harry Styles
This will mark the first time Harry Styles has ever performed at Coachella and it is a headlining gig.
The 28-year-old boyfriend of Olivia Wilde has had a very successful solo career after being part of one of the best-selling boybands of all time in One Direction.
The British artist’s musical career began in 2010 as a solo contestant on British reality singing competition show X Factor as he was brought back to join the singing group after his elimination.
After the group disbanded in 2016, he released a self-titled solo album through Columbia records which debuted at number one in the UK and US in 2017.
His second album, titled Fine Line, was released in 2019 also debuted atop the charts making for the biggest first-week sales by an English male artist in chart history.
Later this year Styles will put out his third full-length album, titled Harry’s House, as he released chart topping single As It Was earlier this month to hype up the release.
