Billie Eilish to Perform ‘Special Acoustic Set’ at UNICEF’s 2019 Masquerade Ball: Exclusive


Billie Eilish is adding a costume party to her long list of 2019 performances. The 17-year-old pop star will perform at the UNICEF Masquerade Ball in Los Angeles on Oct. 26.

The "Bad Guy" singer is set to deliver a "special acoustic perfomance" at the event, according to a release. Now in its seventh year, the Masquerade Ball is the signature event for UNICEF Next Generation, a group of philanthopists in their 20s and 30s dedicating to improving the lives of children — a fitting affair for someone like Billie.

"UNICEF NextGen has celebrated the incredible influence that young people have all over this country for nearly a decade," Casey Rotter, UNICEF Next Generation's managing director and founder, tells Billboard in a statement. "For Billie Eilish, the definition of influence in our culture, to lend her voice to our landmark fundraising event is a dream come true. We are so grateful to combine Billie’s fierce and unforgettable style with UNICEF’s mission of doing whatever it takes for children everywhere. Billie is a perfect example of what NextGen stands for, how all of us, no matter what we do in our every day lives, can make a difference in the world and use our power and influence for good.”

Though tickets to the event are open to the public, the UNICEF Masquerade Ball is 21 and up. Luckily, those who can't see Eilish at this event can catch her on tour next year, as the singer announced The Where Do We Go? World Tour, which will hit cities all around North America, Latin America and Europe and the United Kingdom from March through July 2020.

UNICEF Masquerade Ball has raised more than $2.2 million since its first event in 2013. Previous performers include Foster the People, Betty Who, Cold War Kids and Aluna George, among others. Tickets to this year's ball can be purchased here.
