From the world class vantage point of a harbour-side amphitheatre, the Twilight at Taronga series will return this summer for its 20th anniversary edition, boasting the most modern and eclectic program yet.

 

Celebrating the Sydney summer with breathtaking 180-degree harbour views, Taronga Zoo has already presented sell-out performances from iconic Australian artists including Bernard Fanning.

 

Still to come: Paul Kelly presenting Merri Soul Sessions, You Am I, Sarah Blasko, Dan Sultan, Something For Kate, international guests Belle and Sebastian, Conor Oberst, Rufus Wainwright and many more.

Spanning each Friday and Saturday night from now through to Saturday 21st March, Twilight at Taronga remains an all ages affair, where concertgoers are invited to pull up a picnic blanket and enjoy delicious hampers curated by renowned chef Giovanni Pilu.
We’re thrilled to be introducing Twilight at Taronga to a new generation of audiences with this vibrant line-up,” says Paul Davies, Taronga’s General Manager Marketing, Fundraising and Commercial Services. “It’s the first time in our history that we’re introducing big-name international and contemporary artists to complement our regular favourites and we hope this will pique the interest of younger festival-goers while keeping our regular patrons coming back for more.”

 

Twilight also welcomes back fan favourites Bjorn Again, the James Morrison Big Band and Aria Award winner Anthony Callea will celebrate the songs of George Michael with his full band on Valentine’s Day.

 

Across the series, a striking new visual identity designed by iconic Australian artist and Mosman local Ken Done will be on display at the already picturesque site, further establishing Twilight at Taronga as an essential Sydney experience.

As part of the 2015 re-vamped Twilight at Taronga series, return public transport is included in the price of all tickets (prices start from $69) covering bus, rail, light rail and ferry from Sydney metropolitan areas. For those wanting to get away for the weekend, Rydges North Sydney and QT are offering all inclusive accommodation packages. And for Twilight concertgoers who fancy a trip to the Zoo, discounted entry is available from 2pm on the same day. Gift vouchers are also available and make the perfect Christmas gift for family, friends, colleagues and employees.

 

Profits from the series continues to support the Taronga Conservation Society Australia, whose ongoing work is experienced by the Zoo’s 1.5 million Australian and international visitors each year.
