Event Details





Twilight at Taronga has announced their full lineup of artists, who will perform against the picturesque backdrop of its 180-degree Sydney harbour views in 2016. As a major celebration of Taronga Zoo's centennial year, the stunning vantage point of Twilight's harbour-side amphitheater will play host to music lovers each weekend from Thursday 28 January through Saturday 12 March.

Experience the thrill of a summer evening open-air show on the intimate, fully licensed concert lawns of iconic Taronga Zoo, as Twilight presents its most diverse lineup yet. Internationally renowned artist Courtney Barnett, who has just been nominated for an incredible eight ARIA Awards including Album of the Year and Best Female Artist, cuts the ribbon on the Twilight at Taronga 2016 program, which also features Josh Pyke, John Butler Trio, The Waifs, Birds of Tokyo, Missy Higgins in a special Valentine's weekend performance, crowd favourites Bjorn Again back by popular demand, Violent Femmes, C.W. Stoneking with Marlon Williams, legendary South African a cappella singing group Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and more.

The perfect destination to unwind as the sun sets over the harbour, audiences are invited to immerse themselves in the magnificence of the Sydney summer with a refreshing Aperol Spritz accompanied by a delicious gourmet antipasto hamper inspired by Giovanni Pilu. Hampers are available for pre-purchase online, or bring a basket along to experience one of Sydney's essential nights out.
