Billie Eilish completed her headlining performance at Leeds Festival 2023 with an impressive selection of songs as part of her set list – here’s what she performed.
Last night (August 25), the 21-year-old became the youngest artist to headline Leeds festival, overtaking London rapper Dave, who did so last year at 24. In his historic performance, Eilish managed to achieve the biggest songs and the biggest classics from her career.
In her performance, Eilish (and her brother Finneas) treated attendees to a massive playlist of over 20 songs, including ‘Bury A Friend,’ the Barbie soundtrack song ‘What Was I Made For?’, ‘Ocean Eyes’, ‘Oxytocin’, ‘Bad Guy’ and ‘Happier Than Ever’, which closed the concert.
While performing ‘What Was I Made For?’, Eilish referenced and was surprised by a viral TikTok meme, in which user @queenzziel0cthevoice duetted Billie’s karaoke version of the song, singing the first verse with a slight accent different, something like “While I enjoy” when the original lyrics are “All the enjoyment”.

In Reading, Sam Fender treated the crowd to a performance worthy of a five-star rating from the NME. NME’s Andrew Trendell wrote of the performance: “Fender, an artist grounded in reality alone, singing straight to the heart of a young audience with the world at their feet, can do that even more. It’s a mirror to the public this, and for that reason he belongs more on this stage than anyone”.
