The singer admitted that she prefers to headline small venues while touring, as she hasn't enjoyed performing in arenas when supporting other acts.
"Is it weird that I don't like the idea of an arena tour?" she asked BBC Newsbeat. "If I can just get away with doing lots of smaller venues… Like Brixton Academy is my dream.
"I've always wanted to play Brixton Academy and now I am and it's mental. But I don't think I want to do arenas to be honest."
She added: "I've played arenas supporting other artists but it's not really for me to be honest. They're just a bit boring and a bit rubbish. Sorry arena people."
Goulding will embark on a headline tour of the UK next month, starting at Bristol Academy on December 7 and including a show at London's Brixton Academy on December 12.
