New Zealand artist and breakout international star Lorde has been nominated for four awards at the 56th annual Grammy Awards ceremony. After performing ‘Royals’ at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre on Saturday, Lorde was nominated for Record of the Year (Pure Heroine), Song of the Year (Royals), Best Pop Vocal Album (Pure Heroine) and Best Pop Solo Performance (Royals).

Lorde will be attending the Grammy awards ceremony on 26 January 2014 in Los Angeles. She was scheduled to perform at the Laneway Festival Auckland on Monday, 27 January 2014, however due to the tight timeframe between events she is unable to make it back in time.

In lieu of her performance at the festival, Laneway Festival promoters are thrilled to announce a very special stand-alone Lorde performance at the festival site at Silo Park on Wednesday, 29 January 2014 to accommodate her schedule and her NZ fans.  

Lorde will be playing all Laneway Festival shows in Australia.

The special Laneway Festival presents Lorde show and hometown appearance will be her only summer performance.  It has been made possible by Lorde and her team working with Laneway Festival, Waterfront Auckland and the Auckland Council.
