The Melbourne Zoo Twilights Series Announces Line-Up For 2016

The Melbourne Zoo has released the program for their 2016 Twilight Series to help fight against wildlife extinction, with the shows running across Friday and Saturday evenings from Friday, 29 January to Saturday, 12 March.

The Twilight Series are a run of gigs featuring a wide and diverse range of music to provide the perfect summer night of entertainment for all ages, with the proceeds going towards fighting against the extinction of the Eastern Barred Bandicoot. Extinct on the mainland since 1991, Melbourne Zoo in the past twelve months has successfully released sixteen of these little marsupials into their new home on Churchill Island in Phillip Island Nature Parks, where they are protected behind predator proof fences against foxes and feral cats.

The 2016 Twilight Series includes some of the best local acts in the country, and some international names as well. American pop princess Belinda Carlisle is making her Zoo debut along with new wave heroes Pseudo Echo, while Swedish indie folk artist José González and Australia’s John Butler Trio will dazzle with spectacular guitar skills.

Tickets to all of the Twilight Series shows include full access to the Zoo before the gig starts, providing the opportunity to arrive early and wander among the many exhibits before settling in for a night of great music.

Melbourne Zoo Twilights is a fully licensed event, with a great selection of delicious meals, snacks, coffee, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and deserts, all available to buy in the dining zone. BYO picnics are allowed, but no alcohol or glass.

The Melbourne Zoo Twilights concert series is a great initiative to bring attention to the effort the Zoo is putting in to help protect some of Australia’s most vulnerable species, and is a superb night of entertainment across the two week run.
