Dua Lipa To Host Live Podcast Recording At 2023 Hay Festival
Dua Lipa will host a live recording of her podcast ‘At Your Service’ at next year’s Hay Festival.
‘At Your Service’, which has just completed its second season, sees Lipa interviewing big names from the world of entertainment. The second season featured guests such as Charli XCX, Trevor Noah and Greta Gerwig.
Now, the renowned Welsh literary festival has announced that Lipa’s live podcast recording will be one of 30 early bird shows at next year’s event. “I have long wanted to explore Hay’s bookstores and experience the literary atmosphere of the Hay Festival,” Lipa said in a press release. “So I am thrilled that I will be there next year on stage and with some of my favorite authors to share stories and seek inspiration with my fellow book lovers. I can’t wait to see you there!”
The festivities will take place as usual from May 25 to June 4, 2023, in the town of Hay-on-Wye in Wales. Booker prize winner Margaret Atwood, Scottish rock duo The Proclaimers and poet laureate Simon Armitage are also scheduled to appear at the Hay Festival. Atwood will speak about her short story collection Old Babes in the Wood, and Simon Armitage’s event will include readings from his forthcoming book of selected lyrics, Never Good With Horses
Recently, the singer also gave an update on the progress of her third album. “I’ve continued to work, it’s completely changed, and I actually think now it’s starting to feel cohesive,” she said in an interview. Diversity. So I’ll keep writing through the early months of the New Year and see where it takes me.
Lipa continued: “The album is different – it’s still pop but it’s sonically different, and it has more lyrical themes. If I had told you the title, everything would have made sense – but I think we just gotta wait.”
