Dua Lipa says she has dreamed of performing at Glastonbury “all my life”.

The ‘One Kiss’ singer, 28, was announced on Thursday (14.03.24) as the Friday night headliner for the Somerset festival on 28 June along with other bill-toppers Coldplay and SZA.

She said on Instagram about the news: “FRIDAY NIGHT PYRAMID STAGE HEADLINE!!!! I have dreamt of this moment all my life.

“Something that lived only in my wildest dreams and highest manifestations !!! “I am so excited to see you all in my favourite place on earth and make it a night to remember!! Thank you @emily_eavis ~ GLASTO 4EVER.”

Hours later on her Instagram Dua appeared to hint at the artwork of her new album by posting series of professionally-shot images of herself swimming underwater, alongside the message: “Sometimes you gotta be in deep waters to find yourself.”

Dua has her third album ‘Radical Optimism’ coming out on 3 May, a few weeks before the festival.

This year will mark a record fifth time Coldplay have appeared there, and Shania Twain, 58, has been confirmed for the legends slot on Sunday (30.05.24) afternoon.

She told BBC Radio 2 about being booked: “It’s just so exciting. It’s going to be gorgeous.”

Also on the bill are US rockers The National and Idles, K-pop act Seventeen, Avril Lavigne, The Streets, Camila Cabello, Sugababes and The Last Dinner Party.

There have been reports festival organiser Emily Eavis, 44, has been hit by headaches over this year’s line-up after Stevie Wonder and other world-famous acts allegedly dropped out of headline slots at the last minute.
