Dua Lipa headlines Glastonbury Festival

Dua Lipa said she has dreamed about headlining Glastonbury Festival “my whole life” as she kicked off the Pyramid stage slot.

The pop superstar opened her first headline performance at the British festival with impressive choreography to her hit track Training Season from her third studio album, Radical Optimism, which was released earlier this year.

The 28-year-old told the crowd: “I can’t believe this, I’ve dreamed about this my whole life.

“And I can’t believe I’m right up here, right here, with you guys, I am so happy to be here with you guys tonight.”

During her performance, the audience could be heard singing loudly along to the words of her 2018 track One Kiss with Calvin Harris, and the song that “changed my life” Be The One.

The pop star stood on the barrier separating the crowd from the stage as the audience helped her sing parts of the song.

Meanwhile, during her 2020 hit song Levitating, the singer asked the crowd if they were ready “to go to the moon”.

The headline set also saw her bring out surprise guest Kevin Parker from Tame Impala, performing The Less I Know The Better from the group’s repertoire.

Parker appeared to have problems with his microphone, which Dua Lipa laughed off.

Dua Lipa, who took home the Brit Award for best pop act in March, treated revellers to a selection of her hit songs, including Illusion and Break My Heart.

It comes after Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis said the pop star was “born” to headline the festival.

Earlier on the Pyramid stage on Friday, Paul Heaton and Norman Cook reunited to perform a Housemartins classic at Glastonbury.

Heaton surprised festival-goers by bringing out his former bandmate Cook, better known as Fatboy Slim, to perform their 1986 hit Happy Hour.
