While there was no denying she lived up to her headliner billing, pop star Dua Lipa saw her Glastonbury set on Friday night marred by 'sound issues' as viewers at home were left complaining they couldn't hear everything.

Having performed on the much smaller John Peel Stage back in 2017, Brit winner and platinum selling singer Dua was given top billing as large crowds gathered at the Pyramid Stage at the world famous Worthy Farm event and a huge TV audiences tuned into watch on the BBC.

Throughout the extensive set, Dua fired on all cylinders to perform her ever growing plethora of hits including Physical, Love Again, New Rules and Don't Start Now, as well as being joined by Kevin Parker on a duet of Tame impala's The Less I Know the Better. And although Dua deservedly got a rapturous reception from the Glastonbury faithful for her star turn and set social media alight as people watching at home were quick to react; there was some frustration over the poor sound quality at times.

Taking aim at the BBC on X, one annoyed fan ranted: "I know Dua Lipa is not my thing but for gods sake @BBCOne sort the f**king sound out! Poor girl is inaudible on tv even when just speaking (I’m a sound engineer I know it’s not what the glasto audience are hearing)" Also unimpressed by the issues, a second posted: "Anyone notice the sound feed on tv for #DuaLipa is a bit flat? Or is it just me and/or my tv?! I hope it’s more banging there"

Among the many other posts about the technical issues, another viewer remarked: "why does BBC’s audio have to sound like I too am standing a mile from the stage with a bucket over my head?"
