At 15, Billie Eilish posted ‘Ocean Eyes‘ on SoundCloud, and at 17, she was belting out the lyrics to the same song in her iconic green pigtails to a sea of fans at Lowlands Festival in 2019. Eilish with her deeply touching lyrics, fashion statements, awareness, and connection with fans is truly what it means to be a pop star in this day and age. And while things weren’t always uphill, with some studios and even celebrities calling her ‘boring’ and ‘too dark’, Eilish has emerged as one of the greatest names in the music industry.

Since her last show at the Lowlands Festival, the Bad Guy singer is now an Oscar-winning one, which is why the announcement of Eilish headlining the mega music festival is such big news. She will be performing in the Alpha tent with three other enigmatic female music artists, marking the first time ever since its beginning in 1967.
Billie Eilish will have the Alpha tent for her performance
For the unversed, Lowlands Festival is one of the biggest music festivals every year, attracting over 55,000 thousand visitors. The stages are located inside tents in case something goes wrong with the weather. And the Alpha tent, being one of the largest, matches the size of a football pitch, exactly where a mega pop star like Billie Eilish should be performing. The Oscar-winning singer released her last studio album in 2021, which went on to get major acclaim.

While the newly turned 21-year-old singer did not release any new music last year, she was still pretty busy collecting the achievements that her 2021 album made.

2022 for Eilish included a lot of activist work and fashion statements. Although there aren’t any new releases yet, fans are beyond happy to see Billie Eilish on stage again.

Florence+The Machine and Nothing But Thieves will also be performing. Given the global fandom of the mentioned performers, it is obvious that the festival has hiked the price of its tickets.

This year Lowlands festival will be taking place at Biddinghuizen over a span of three days and unlike last year when the price was 255 euros, this year it is 300 euros. But when you have a global artist like Billie Eilish performing, a hike of 45 euros can be forgiven, right?
