A BBC Radio 1 Dua Lipa Live Lounge Special is to air on the station and will also be broadcast on BBC One.

Ahead of her headline appearance at Glastonbury 2024, the special programme will include a performance from the Grammy and BRIT award winning artist and she will also be in conversation with Radio 1’s Clara Amfo.

In this 30-minute entertainment special filmed in the Maida Vale Studios, Clara will dive into what is fast becoming a huge year for Dua, chatting about her latest album ‘Radical Optimism’, her Glastonbury headline performance, and what’s next for the star.

Dua Lipa says: “I’m so happy to be back in the Radio 1 Live Lounge. I love coming back and being in here, it feels like a full circle moment. It’s so nice to have new songs to perform, new stories to tell, and a whole new world to dive into.”

Dua Lipa Live Lounge Special will broadcast on BBC One on Monday 6 May at 11.15pm and will also be available to watch on BBC iPlayer. It will then be played on BBC Radio 1 at 7.30pm on Tuesday 7 May.
