Zoo Twilights has announced its 2018 program. The annual not-for-profit concert series will take place at Melbourne Zoo every weekend from January 26 until March 10.
Alongside the already announced Ben Folds and Lucy Rose, expect sets from The Teskey Brothers, Saskwatch, Cut Copy, Sunnyboys, Painters and Dockers, the Cat Empire, Allysha Joy, Neil Finn and Liam Finn, Hiatus Kaiyote, Harvey Sutherland and Bermuda, The Preatures, Ali Barter, Jet, Spazzys, Kate Miller-Heidke, Odette and Grizzly Bear. There will also be a special session of music trivia with RocKwiz LIVE!
Proceeds from the all-ages Zoo Twilight shows will go towards Zoos Victoria’s efforts fighting the extinction of the 21 most at-risk species in Victoria, such as the eastern barred bandicoot. To date, the zoo has bred more than 650 bandicoots and hopes to continue this work with contributions from the festival.
Tickets for Zoo Twilights will go on sale to the public on Tuesday October 24. Those signed up for line-up news will be able to buy pre-sale tickets on Wednesday October 18, when the full 2018 season line-up will be announced.
