Billie Eilish has announced the return of her climate action event ‘OVERHEATED’, which is due to take place in London at the end of this month.
The singer and outspoken climate change activist will be holding her second event – after the first took place at the O2 in London across six days in June 2022 to coincide with her ‘Happier Than Ever’ world tour – at Flipper’s Roller Boogie Palace on August 30.
The event will consist of panel discussions, community building and resources, roller skating and plant-based food from Neat Burger.
Billie Eilish is set to attend the event along with guests including with Earthrise CEO Alice Eady, fashion entrepreneur Samata Pattinson, and climate activists Dominique Palmer and Tori Tsui with more set to me announced.
The singer’s mum, Maggie Baird, is also due to attend after co-organising the event with her company Support + Feed.
Last month, Eilish shared her self-directed video for ‘Barbie’ song ‘what was I made for?’ “It means so much to me and i hope it will mean just as much to you,” the singer shared of her contribution to all-star soundtrack, which also featured tracks Charli XCX, Dua Lipa, HAIM, Sam Smith, FIFTY FIFTY, Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice and more.
Reviewing her headline show at Glastonbury last year, Rolling Stone UK said the festival’s “youngest headline act shines on dark day”, a reference to her performing the day Roe v Wade was overturned in the US. “If there’s something that you just can’t get out of your head, scream it out now, Eilish tells the Glastonbury crowd. There’s plenty to scream about today as fundamental women’s rights are taken away – and 20-year-old Eilish, the ruling pop star of her generation, is the perfect person to act as a conduit for that emotion.”
