New Zealand singer songwriter Ella Yelich-O’Connor aka Lorde is the last minute addition to Splendour In The Grass, filling the gap created by the ailing Frank Ocean.

Ocean cancelled all of his Australian shows yesterday, including his headline slot for Splendour In The Grass, yesterday because of illness.

Lorde, just an ocean away in New Zealand, jumped on a plane at the request of Splendour In The Grass and will perform at 5:30pm Sunday, bumping Of Monsters and Men and The Presets up to the closing slot.

16-year old Lorde is a student Year 12 student at Takapuna Grammar School in Auckland. She released her debut EP ‘The Love Club’ in March this year. It features her number one New Zealand hit ‘Royals’.

Lorde’s second EP ‘Tennis Court’ was released in June.
