Twilight at Taronga

Prepare for sunset selfies as Taronga's alfresco music festival returns this summer


Time Out says

The Twilight at Taronga 2024 Summer Concert Series ticks off a hefty amount of Sydney 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 a diverse line-up of top Aussie artists, and you've got yourself a pretty bloody great way to spend a waterfront sunset. 

Running over five back-to-back weekends from February 2 to Saturday, March 2, Twilight at Taronga will complement the growls, squeaks and hisses of the menagerie with classic and newer artists. You can snag tickets to homegrown singer-songwriter Meg Mac, avant-garde folk heroes the Waifs, infectious groove band the Cat Empire, alternative songwriter John Butler, and rock’n’roll legends the Australian Rock Collective. Twilight at Taronga mainstays Bjorn Again, James Morrison, Ball Park Music and the Whitlams will also return for 2024.

On top of this stellar musical line-up, there will be an incredible night of drag on February 22 to celebrate Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. This colourful drag gala will feature greats like Karen from Finance, Spankie Jackzon, Art Simon, Gabriella Labucci and many, many more. 

If you could use a good laugh, check out the Comedy Gala show on February 10. Featuring comedic superstars Celia Pacquola, Ivan Aristeguieta and Daniel Connell (amongst a lot of dazzling others), get ready to laugh until your cheeks hurt at the two-hour extravaganza.

Plus, the smallest people in your life are also covered. Beloved children’s entertainer Emma Memma is putting on a kid's morning show for the ages on February 3, while all tiny fans can join Zindzi and the Zillionaires for an upbeat R’n’B party on March 2 at the ‘Lil' Twilight’ sesh.

Ticket prices start at $76.50 for adults, and you can add on optional extras like picnic blankets, hampers or same-day zoo entry, with proceeds going towards Taronga’s wildlife conservation efforts.
