Presets And Cat Power Will Perform at Silo Park

St Jerome’s Laneway Festival Announce the Presets And Cat Power Will Perform at Silo Park

St Jerome’s Laneway Festival are thrilled to announce two exciting additions to the Auckland festival later this month. The Presets and Cat Power will join the massive line-up alongside twenty five other artists in Auckland’s Silo Park on Monday, 27th January 2014.


Due to the time clash with the 56th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, James Blake will not be performing at Laneway Festival in Auckland. After an impressive rise on the global stage in 2013, UK’s talented James Blake has been nominated for a Grammy Award for Best New Artist.
"Laneway supports James Blake’s decision to go to the Grammys. We are totally gutted that he is unable to make it, however we appreciate this is a huge achievement for James Blake and his career. Due to James Blake’s tight tour schedule it is not possible for us to schedule replacement dates” says Laneway Festival co-promoter, Mark Kneebone.

“We worked right through the Christmas break to secure the best replacements we could. After multiple attempts over the years, we are very happy to announce that Cat Power and The Presets wil be joining us for Laneway Festival 2014.”

Refund requests willl be accepted from tomorrow through till 5pm NZDT on Thursday, 16th January 2014. Laneway Festival's standard event terms and conditions will apply to any refund requests received after that date.

LORDE AT SILO PARK

All Laneway Festival ticketholders have until 5pm NZDT on Wednesday, 8th January 2014 to redeem their free tickets to Lorde's show on Wednesday, 29th January in Silo Park. After 8th January, all tickets to Lorde must be purchased separately.

THE PRESETS

Spinning electro-pop beats with bite, THE PRESETS are kings when it comes to cultivating the perfect festival vibe. Rocketing onto the scene in the late 2000’s, Julian Hamilton (vocals, programming and keys) and Kim Moyes (drums, programming and keys) have worked their way up and out though the musical quagmire of Australia to receive extensive global critical acclaim. Laneway-ers will all know and love killer track "My People" from Apocalypso, which went double platinum in Australia and spent more than 75 weeks on ARIA’s Top 100 chart. Their latest album, Pacifica (2012) delivers clean hits of emotive techno through to synth-laden, anthemic pop, which UK website backs up, “The Presets have remained for years one of the most beguiling and downright irresistible electronic acts.” With a splash of avant-garde, prepare yourself for some dance floor monsters from this dynamic duo this Laneway Festival.

CAT POWER

Smoky vocals and moody ruminations are what CAT POWER does best. Leaving audiences mesmerized within the intricate soulful world she conjures, the Georgian-born singer-songwriter is an indie-rock goddess when it comes to provocative vocals and haunting guitar. With a musical career spanning over two decades, the Cat Power sound has been a constant evolution from punk, folk and blues to soul and even electronica on her latest works. Cat Power’s album of 2012, Sun, with the singles "Ruin" and "Cherokee", was the most successful of her career, debuting at #10 on the US mainstream Billboard charts and #2 in Billboard’s Alternative and Independent charts. NZ Herald note, "She manages to mix her feminine allure with the other-worldliness of a reckless rock star, and fans love it."
