Melbourne Zoo Twilights Series 2015

 

 

By Alana Mazurke

 

Returning again for another year of splendour in the heart of the Melbourne Zoo, the Twilight Series kick off last week of January and proceed through to early March making it all the more easier not to miss. The shows this year are even more diverse spanning from Australian hometown royalty with Bernard Fanning and Paul Kelly to the delightfully surprising return of the renowned Village People. Whether you have a pre-picnic dinner on the lawns, watching the sun slowly go down whilst Conor Oberst performs his lyrically outstanding and emotionally driven folk tunes or grab a beer and walk around the zoo before coming back to the stage to sing along to “that Black Betty song” as Spiderbait play it live or dance like no one’s watching (although we are) to The Cat Empire, Melbourne Zoo Twilights 2015 offers up more than just another live event. Full program details are listed below as well as links to all ticketing details. There’s also some links to pictures and interviews from last years series to give you some idea of what you could be experiencing.
