Time to find yourself a decent safari suit because Zoo Twilights has just dropped its 2019 line-up.

And speaking of good suits, Melbourne’s own entrepreneurial synth-poppers Client Liaison will open the proceedings in January with support from Kira Puru.

There are some big international acts coming in from the wild, too. American soul singer Aloe Blacc will croon through hits such as I Need a Dollar, and if you can’t make it to Golden Plains, Zoo Twilights is giving you another chance to catch genre-pushing funk and hip-hop act the Internet. Also playing a show alongside a Golden Plains appearance is much-loved New Zealand country singer Marlon Williams.

If MMMBop backed by a symphony orchestra sounds like a bit much you can still indulge in a ridiculous nostalgia session with Hanson in classic three-brother line-up mode.

Other big cats on the line-up include the previously announced American singer Cat Power, and the Cat Empire.

All proceeds from ticket sales go back into Zoos Victoria’s efforts to fight wildlife extinction.

Tickets go on sale at 8am Tuesday October 30. Tickets here.
