Dua Lipa has revealed she was worried nobody would turn up to watch her when she performed at Glastonbury Festival.

The Grammy Award-winner performed for festival-goers at Worthy Farm in 2017 - but has said she feared she would be singing to an empty tent.

She had no reason to fear though, as crowds flocked to the John Peel Stage to watch the 24-year-old's set.

Lipa played her most popular hits, including 'New Rules' and 'Be The One'.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats, she said: "I was like 'No one's going to show up'. I was petrified. 10 minutes before the show starts, it's still quite empty outside."

She continued: "I'm like, 'alright, doesn't matter. Whatever happens, I'm still playing Glastonbury. Whoever shows up shows up'."

Lipa was surprised when fans showed up at the famous festival to watch her perform: "I run out onto stage. The whole tent is full. There's people outside of the tent. It's pouring down with rain and they're still there sitting and watching..."

I was like, 'Oh my God. All these people are here to come and see me'. I couldn't believe my eyes. I couldn't believe my luck. I couldn't believe that people were there. It was the first time where I was like, 'All right, let's do it'. Glastonbury's always been a really special festival for me.
