Time Out says

Prepare for sunset selfies as Sydney’s most spectacular music festival returns from hiatus

Update: this event has been cancelled. Find out more here.

The Twilight at Taronga concert series has been bringing a little bit of summer sunset sparkle to Sydney for over a quarter-century now, and the 2022 edition promises to be bigger and better than ever. With Covid-Safe guidelines in place, there will be a limited number of shows, so don’t dawdle on securing your tickets if you have your heart set on any of these gigs. The season roosts at Taronga from January 28 to February 19.

Each year, the gig experience brings the best Australian artists to the shores of Sydney Harbour at Taronga Zoo for fans to enjoy live performances alfresco.

Pre-sale tickets for the Church, Daryl Braithwaite and ABBA tribute act Bjorn Again have already sold out before the general public sale began, so book now to not miss Bjorn Again’s second show on Sunday February 6.

On top of the artists already mentioned, this diverse and dynamic series will also feature multi-ARIA Award winning Josh Pyke, long-time favourite James Morrison Big Band, and the Twilight debut of indie hit-makers Winston Surfshirt and San Cisco. Or you can have a night with two of Australia’s most powerful songstresses with a double-headliner from Washington and Odette.

If you could use a good laugh, check out the Comedy Gala show on Sunday February 13 – again, they added a second show after the first one sold out. Featuring homegrown comedic superstars Joel Creasey, Aaron Chen, Claire Hooper and more, prepare to laugh until your cheeks hurt at the two-hour extravaganza.

Tickets start at $69.30 for adults, and you can add on optional extras like picnic blankets and hampers, with proceeds going towards Taronga’s conservation efforts. If you’re feeling like a fancy start to the new year, consider booking the VIP Twilight at Taronga Retreat Package which includes a luxury overnight stay at the Wildlife Retreat, breakfast at the two-hatted Me-Gal restaurant and a Sanctuary Tour featuring a bunch of cute Australian critters. All tickets on sale now.
