The coy, glamourous and hotly contested Lana Del Rey will finally reach our shores for this year's Splendour in the Grass festival, after cancelling a series of Australian shows due to media commitments in the wake of her highly ridiculed Saturday Night Life Performance.
The 25 year old chanteuse will be performing in sideshows in Melbourne and Sydney and however much music critics still seem to be split on Ms Del Rey, there's no question that she is pop's little darling at the moment.
Tickets to Lana Del Rey’s Splendour sideshows were snapped up faster than she could bat heavily lashed eyelid. The girl that hit our radars with hits like Video Games and title track Born to Die, has sold out venues country wide all the while earning herself a place on the coveted 2012 Splendour in the Grass lineup. Her ethereal sounds and quirky style have earned the artist a heady fan base.
With release of second album Born to Die earlier this year, Del Rey sealed her fate as the contemporary Nancy Sinatra – the modern-day crooner. With countless nominations for best track and video, and receiving the ‘Best Breakthrough Act’ at The Brit Awards this year, signs point to far more to come from the young artist.
