The EP launched the artist into the spotlight with his new take on alternative rock, securing him as one of the most unique, eccentric sounds of the twenty-first century.
While the artist has released his fair share of bangers, he is most well known for his track “Mars” (2020) which has a much more personal touch to it.
Inspired by the experience of one of his fans, who was struggling to convince her parents that she was transgender, “Mars” tells the story of feeling out of place and seeking comfort in the possibility of extraterrestrial life.
Yungblud has also bagged collaborations with some of the music industry’s hottest names, including Will Smith’s daughter Willow, Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker, who worked with the artist on his most popular track, “I Think I’m OKAY.” (2019).
What Time Is Yungblud Performing At Glastonbury? How To Watch Him
Yungblud will be the penultimate Saturday performance on the John Peel stage. Fans will be able to see him perform live between 21:00 and 22:00.
However, if you’re watching at home, you can tune into BBC Three between 22:30 and 23:30 to see it, presented by Clara Amfo. But don’t worry if you can’t make it, as all performances across the weekend will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
Known for showcasing the best of fiery new music at Glastonbury, the John Peel stage has previously welcomed artists from all genres, from The Black Keys to Calvin Harris.
To make sure you don’t miss out on the next up-and-coming sounds of this year, head down to the John Peel stage a little earlier in the day to check out the rest of Saturday’s Glastonbury lineup.
John Peel Stage Lineup: Saturday
Jamie T: 22:30 - 23:45
Yungblud: 21:00 - 22:00
Ghetts: 19:30 - 20:30
Pa Salieu: 18:00 - 19:00
Beabadoeebee: 16:30 - 17:30
Self Esteem: 15:15 - 16:00
Holly Humberstone: 14:00 - 14:45
Enny: 12:45 - 13:30
Go A: 11:30 - 12:15
Although Glastonbury has put together a stellar lineup across all stages this year, the number of performances occurring at once means you often have to prioritise a list of go-to artists.
Who Overlaps With Yungblud’s Performance?
Playing at the Other Stage during Yungblud’s performance will be TikTok phenomenon Megan Thee Stallion between 22:30-23:30 and popular Afrobeats artist Burna Boy between 20:30-21:30.
However, if you choose to watch Yungblud instead, you will only be missing the last 30 minutes of Burna Boy’s set, and the first 30 mins of Megan Thee Stallion’s, meaning you can do a quick dash to make sure you don’t miss out on the rest!
You might just have to sacrifice seeing headliner Paul McCartney play on the Pyramid Stage though, as his set starts at 21:30 and finishes at 23:45.
