Lorde to headline Electric Avenue Music Festival 2022

Lorde is heading to Christchurch in February 2022 as one of the headline acts at Electric Avenue Music Festival.

The global superstar is one of the first artists announced to perform at annual Christchurch music fest Electric Avenue. She'll be joined but the likes of classic Kiwi jammers Supergroove as well as Drax Project, Lee Mvtthews, Harper Finn and Summer Thieves. The rest of the festival acts will be announced in September.

Lorde's performance at Electric Avenue will be her first ever appearance at a New Zealand music festival, and comes off the back of her recent hit single 'Solar Power', which will feature on a full album released later this year.

"We're stoked to have an artist of Lorde's calibre on next year's lineup," says Festival director Callam Mitchell. "Lorde truly is an international superstar and a household name around the world, so to have her performing at Electric Avenue for what will be her first ever festival appearance in this country is huge for us."

Drax Project, Harper Finn, Lee Mvtthews, Summer Thieves, and funk rock group Supergroove are the other acts confirmed on the lineup in the first announcement.

Tickets for the event will go on sale at 12 noon on Monday 28th June.
