Pop Icon Dua Lipa brought day one of Glastonbury Festival 2024 to a close on Friday night with an energetic and memorable set on the Pyramid Stage.

The pop star, who took home the Brit Award for best pop act in March, headlined the festival for the first time and opened with her track Training Season.

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.”

However around 40 minutes into her set she sent the crowd wild as she introduced a surprise guest - Kevin Parker, aka Tame Impala. The pair then sang a duet of Tame Impala's The Less I Know the Better - and it left many watching at home speechless.

Ahead of the weekend Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis said Dua Lipa was “born” to headline the festival.. Coldplay and SZA will also headline the world-famous Pyramid Stage over the next few days, while Shania Twain will take the Legends Slot. The full list of performers is huge - but you can also expect to see the likes of Avril Lavigne, Cyndi Lauper, The Last Dinner Party and Camila Cabello.

Glastonbury was founded by Sir Michael Eavis on his Somerset farm in 1970. While he is still involved, his daughter Emily and her husband Nick Dewey now take on the majority of the organisation.

The BBC's coverage of Glastonbury will be available across iPlayer, BBC Sounds, TV, radio and online, including its non-stop Classic Glastonbury channel streaming 24 hours a day from now until Sunday, June 30.
