Now she’s admitted that in order to be able to explore the rest of what the festival had to offer, she persuaded one of her backing dancers to dress up as her.
The 20-year-old then opted for a low-key black outfit, meaning she was able to successfully mingle with the crowd.
‘I had a body double, one of my dancers. We got a black wig and we put buns in and we gave her a mask and sunglasses,’ she said.
‘Everybody thought it was me. I put on a big black coat and a traffic vest, hood, and glasses,’ she told Matt Wilkinson on his Glastonbury special show on Apple Music 1.

The singer will headline Glastonbury Festival in the UK this weekend and admitted she feels ‘underserving’ of her slot topping the bill on the Pyramid Stage along with Sir Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar.
‘It’s a serious once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be asked to go to and to do,’ she shared.
‘And I’m constantly feeling like I’m undeserving of everything, and I think that’s a good thing. I would say that that’s a good thing for the most part.’

Billie also said she was ‘stoked’ to be breaking the record as the youngest-ever solo headliner at the festival, after she made her debut there performing on the Other Stage in 2019.
The Grammy and Oscar winner is also particularly ‘honoured and really excited’ to be a female headliner as she addressed the fact that they don’t tend to be the norm.
However, her inclusion at the top of the bill has made her ‘excited for the future’.
Matt Wilkinson’s Glastonbury Special on Apple Music 1 will air on again in a repeat on Friday June, 24, 12-2pm BST.
