Moving to London after finishing her studies in 2010, Letissier found herself drawn to the performing arts underworld of Soho, where she met the drag queens of Madame JoJo's, who inadvertently helped birth her musical project. She has grown to become a huge mainstream star in her native France, and is known for her energetic and visually arresting live shows, which see her interact with four male dancers and a shadowy four-piece band. She - and they - will be showing off her dance-art-pop sound and style on the show.From Sunderland and making their Later… debut are Field Music, who are essentially brothers David and Peter Brewis.
