JOAN AS POLICEWOMAN CONFIRMED AS FRIDAY HEADLINER
We're thrilled to be able to announce Joan As Policewoman is confirmed to play the main stage on Friday night, just in time for the London launch party tonight.

A truly unique artist, Joan Wasser served as violinist in Anthony & The Johnsons and Rufus Wainwright's band (as well as hanging out with Jeff Buckley and also performing with Nick Cave, Scissor Sisters and Elton John) before stepping out as Joan As Policewoman. Mercury prize-winner, Johnson appears on her debut album, 'Real Life,' a genre-defying but imediately accessible, soulful but off-kilter, shimmering art-pop classic, which also featured JAPW regulars Rainy Orteca on bass and Ben Perowsky on drums.
