Larmer Tree Festival has announced that kooky British singer-songwriter and actress, Paloma Faith will headline Thursday night. With her extraordinary theatrical flair, Paloma looks set to brighten the festival with her show stopping performance.

Paloma made her international breakthrough in 2009. The former burlesque dancer and Best British Female Brit Award nominee will be belting out hits from her critically acclaimed debut album Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful?, as well as treating festival-goers to material from her eagerly awaited second album Fall To Grace.  Out this May, it’s being billed as the soundtrack to her life, with a union of Paloma’s first two loves: film and music.  Backed by spectacular strings and gospel singers, the first track from this album, Picking Up The Pieces is released next month.

Renowned for her unique fashion, which often verges on the extreme, the Larmer Tree Festival audience will have to wait until July to see Paloma’s extravagant attire and show stopping performance.

James Shepard, Founder and Co-Director of Larmer Tree Festival said:  “There’s definitely going to be a buzzing theatrical feel to Thursday night, with comedy headliner Tim Minchin rocking with his unique blend of musical comedy, followed by Paloma’s distinctive, dramatic performance.  This year’s festival looks set to be our best yet!”
