High-ho, Pimlico!   On Saturday, the day before she takes the stage at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, Lorde will headline this year's Infield Fest , a concert connected to the annual Preakness Stakes Thoroughbred horse racing event. 

The 139th running of the Preakness -- the second leg of racing's Triple Crown -- will take place May 17 at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland.  The festival takes place the same day.  Her performance, which takes place at 4 p.m. local time, will mark the 17-year-old New Zealand star's first performance in Maryland, and her last concert in the U.S. for a while. 

After performing her new single "Tennis Court" at the Billboard Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday -- where she's up for 12 trophies -- Lorde heads overseas to play festivals in Scotland, Portugal, England and Japan.  She won't be back in the States until August, when she performs at Lollapalooza.

In previous years, Infield Fest has been headlined by Train , Bruno Mars , Maroon 5 , Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and country act Zac Brown Band .
