  Laneway Festival (Adelaide)

The Laneway Festival is about leading new and revered seminal music. The festival has always been interested in finding what's fresh and great and bringing it to unique settings and surrounds to be appreciated by music lovers. The size of the festivals, the locations and the way we encourage community all form part of the way in which the Laneway team strive to present an urban music experience like no other. St. Jerome's Laneway Festival began in 2004 when Jerome Borazio and Danny Rogers decided that summers in Melbourne would be far better with more live music in unique settings. In a true example of actions speaking louder than words, they started to put great bands into St. Jerome's Bar (RIP) in Melbourne's Calendonian lane. First came the St. Jerome's Summer Series each Sunday afternoon featuring 'new' bands of the time like The Presets and Architecture In Helsinki; next it extended to include a monthly Saturday night called Brains (which was actually a residency for The Avalanches, who turned the little bar inside out). Still not satisfied that they were doing enough, one night Danny and Jerome convinced The Avalanches that they could close the lane, remove the bins and throw a proper laneway party. The Avalanches' mate Monkey quickly made up a poster, they asked a few friends to play and so began the annual St. Jerome's Laneway Festival. Fourteen hundred people attended the first laneway festival. It was packed, smelly and full to the brim with great local music, and the vibe was awesome, utterly awesome...

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, Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance for mega-hit 'Royals' and Best Pop Vocal Album for her debut album Pure Heroine.

Lorde will be attending the Grammy Awards ceremony on 26th January 2014 in Los Angeles. She was scheduled to perform at the 2014 Laneway Auckland festival on Monday, 27th January 2013, but due to the tight timeframe between events she is unable to make it back to New Zealand in time.

In lieu of her performance at the festival, Laneway Festival promoters are thrilled to announce a very special standalone Lorde performance at the festival site at Silo Park on Wednesday, 29th January 2014 to accommodate her schedule and her New Zealand fans. The event will be free of charge to all festival-goers who already have a ticket to the 2014 Laneway Auckland Festival or who purchase one before 5pm on Wednesday, 8th January 2014. Full details on how to purchase tickets to the Lorde standalone show can be found here.

Lorde will be playing all Laneway Festival shows in Australia.

The special Laneway Festival presents Lorde make-up 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.

St Jerome’s Laneway Festival is incredibly proud to support Lorde’s recent Grammy nominations, an amazing feat for this enigmatic young singer-songwriter.

Laneway Festival promoters say, “These outstanding nominations are historic in nature and a huge achievement for Lorde. Laneway Festival is in full support of Lorde and her strong future.”

“Laneway Festival are thrilled to put on a make-up show for Lorde as she continues to be globally recognised for her unparalleled work in music.”

The Laneway Festival 2014 is set to be a highlight on the music-lovers’ calendar. The Sydney and Melbourne events are very close to selling out. Don’t miss it.
