Melbourne Zoo Twilights 2014



By Alana Mazurke


At the height of this 2014 summer, the wonderful people at Melbourne Zoo are putting on a different kind of exhibition. Featuring artists of new, old and even a few reminiscing their idols with tributes, the line up of Melbourne Zoo Twilights 2014 is an experience where you will literally be kicking yourself if missed.


Melbourne Zoo Twilights offer a unique experience combining wildlife, stunning musical performances and gourmet delights, all within the spectacular grounds of Melbourne Zoo, under the blanket of balmy summer nights. “

However, tickets are selling FAST. Each show offers more than just an open aired concert; ticket holders will be treated to full access of the zoo grounds, guided keeper talks and access to the array of delicacies available at the precinct.

Kicking off on the 24th of January with Dan Kelly and Perfect Tripod Australian Songs and finishing off on the 8th of March with Fat Freddy’s Drop and Oscar Key Sung its already obvious the diverse options available to see. With three of the fourteen shows selling out well ahead of the New Year it really will be a ‘first in best dressed’ situation. The full line up will be posted below including all ticketing details.

Notable mentions must go to the Melbourne Zoo and all the workers who put on these Twilights sessions for a worthy cause. This year all proceeds go toward the endeavour to maintain efforts in fighting wildlife extinction. Details of the ‘They’re Calling You’ drive can be found here.

As much adoration I have for all of these performers I must say you’d be a fool not to see Charles Bradley in his prime environment, as well as Clairy Browne who is one of the most entertaining and alluring performers I have ever seen. Personally the Eagles tribute had me at Eagles tribute; singing Hotel California in its entirety with ample die hard Eagles fans is definitely on the bucket list.
