Twilight at Taronga is back with another line-up of gold

The Twilight at Taronga concert series ticks off a hefty amount of Sydney in summer ideals – harbour views at dusk, alfresco live music, and a zoo-fringed lawn to sprawl out on with shared treats and mates. Add in the WSFM gems meets Triple J gold of the diverse line-ups, and you've got yourself a pretty bloody great way to spend a waterfront sunset.

Kicking off on Fri Feb 2 and running until Sat Mar 17, Twilight at Taronga will complement the growls, squeaks and hisses of the menagerie with classic and newer artists. Watch indie favourites like the Jezabels, Dan Sultan, Julia Jacklin and Cloud Control (playing the same night), the Preatures, and Kate Miller-Heidke in their own headline shows. Take a nostalgic trip to the '90s grunge-idol days of Recovery with shows from the Lemonheads and Jebediah, Tex, Don and Charlie, and Something For Kate's Paul Dempsey. Get a dose of legendary Oz rock and songwriting with an album launch from Neil and Liam Finn, pub hits with James Reyne Plays All Crawl and a special Valentine's edition of RocKwiz Live. And, get up and tap your toes to Twilight at Taronga mainstays Bjorn Again and James Morrison.
