Eilish took the stage in Indio, California on Saturday as the youngest headliner in the music festival’s history.
“I should not be headlining this shit!” she told the crowd, which included Insider’s music team. “But I’m so fucking grateful that I’m here and that you guys are all here. This is such a dream come true. I feel crazy.”
Eilish went on to declare her “three rules for the night,” which included a blanket ban on judging others, “don’t be an asshole,” and “just have fun, bitch.”
When her set concluded about one hour later, Eilish apologized.
“Thank you, Coachella! I’m sorry I’m not Beyoncé,” she said, adding, “I love you, goodnight.”
Beyoncé famously became the first Black woman to headline Coachella in 2018, delivering a career-defining performance that featured grueling choreography, several outfit changes, and a Destiny’s Child reunion.
At just 20 years old, Eilish has also made history several times, having become the only woman in Grammys history to sweep all four major categories and the first Oscar winner born in the 21st century.
She has also headlined festivals like Governors Ball in New York City and Firefly in Delaware. She will soon become the youngest solo headliner in the history of Europe’s biggest festival, Glastonbury in England.
