The Maryland Jockey Club today announced that double Grammy Award winner Lorde will headline the 2014 Preakness InfieldFest concert. The 17-year-old superstar will play an extended set on the main stage Saturday, May 17 at Pimlico Race Course when the Maryland Jockey Club, North America's oldest sporting organization, hosts the 139th renewal of the Preakness® Stakes.

 

The annual running of the Preakness is an American institution. First contested in 1873, it is one of thoroughbred horse racing's most valued Grade 1 stakes races. Now one of the largest single-day sporting events in the United States, "The People's Race...The People's Party" has hosted up to 121,309 for the pivotal middle jewel of thoroughbred racing’s Triple Crown at famed Pimlico.

Lorde earned Grammy Awards last month for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for her #1 single “Royals” and received nominations for Record of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for her debut album, Pure Heroine, which was released in September 2013 to commercial success and critical acclaim. The New Zealand native was one of fourteen artists selected to perform at the Grammy Awards and appeared on the cover of the January issue of Rolling Stone.
