…there are few finer Sydney experiences than the annual Twilight concert series at the zoo: A balmy sunset over the harbour, a ‘hello’ to the tree kangaroos and pelicans as you stroll to a place on the grass…
Celebrating summer and live music at the ultimate Sydney Harbour destination, the Twilight at Taronga 2018 Summer Concert Series begins on Friday February 2 and runs until Saturday March 17, held on the lawns of the intimate natural amphitheatre within Taronga Zoo.
Twilight at Taronga is a Sydney summer highlight. With unparalleled views of the Sydney Harbour skyline at dusk, it’s the best place to watch an incredible lineup of artists as you enjoy a sunset picnic.

The first-rate lineup features artists for all ages and is unrivalled in the event’s 23-year history.
The Twilight at Taronga lineup welcomes many new faces and includes Sydney indie rockers The Jezabels, followed by the return of Dan Sultan – one of Australia’s most prolific singer songwriters – with Melbourne’s The Teskey Brothers.
The following week will see Australian singer-songwriter Paul Dempsey and the incredible Neil and Liam Finn in the only Sydney show for the release of their new album and the much loved cult rock music trivia show RocKwiz in a Valentine’s week special.
Sydney trio Cloud Control and alt-country singer-songwriter Julia Jacklin will take to the stage in an exclusive co-headline show, 90s faves The Lemonheads and Jebediah will feature, along with rockers The Preatures supported by Brisbane’s The Creases.
In an exciting new initiative for Twilight at Taronga, the 2018 lineup includes inaugural partnerships with Electric Lady presenting Montaigne, Tired Lion and Sloan Peterson and Future Classic presenting Mount Kimbie, Kucka and Christopher Port.
The series wraps up with Aussie legend James Reyne Plays All Crawl, the musical prowess of Tex, Don and Charlie, and the classically trained alternative pop music sound of Kate Miller-Heidke supported by triple J Unearthed artist Odette.
