It's not the first time the Bellyache singer has been moved up the bill, with her set on The John Peel Stage getting moved to The Other Stage.

Eilish's famous fans include Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, whose daughter Sunny loves the artist, Radiohead's Thom Yorke, and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, who says his daughters are "obsessed" with the Bury A Friend singer.

The Learn To Fly rocker event went one further and compared her success and the passion of her fanbase to that of Nirvana in 1991.
