Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker on stage with Dua Lipa at Glastonbury

Seven years after her first Glastonbury Festival performance, when she was still an emerging artist, Dua Lipa made a star-studded return to Worthy Farm last night (June 28) as the first hedliner of the 2024 edition of the historic event.

On the festival’s main stage, the Pyramid Stage, the Kosovar British pop star presented a setlist similar to that of the European tour that kicked off in Berlin (here’s our story), including songs from the new album “Radical Optimism” (read our review here ), and less recent hits, but with a surprise. During the second part of the concert, the singer was joined on stage by Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, who gave character to the songs from Dua Lipa’s new album that is currently in production. The voice of ‘Physical’ duetted with the Australian musician on a track from his project: ‘The less I know, the better’. The song is taken from one of the most important works in Tame Impala’s discography, 2015’s Currents, which the pop star herself referred to in an interview last year as the album that “changed her life” – and which saw the track “New Person, Same Old Mistakes” revisited by Rihanna in her 2016 “Anti.”

According to what reports, Dua Lipa wanted Kevin Parker by her side on the Glastonbury 2024 stage, including for the concert’s closing number, the single “Houdini”.

The 2024 edition of the historic English festival continues tonight with Coldplay’s headline set and concludes on Sunday, June 30 with SZA starring in the main show. Like Dua Lipa’s, Chris Martin and company’s concert at Glastonbury 2024 will also be streamed for free.
