The lineup for the 2016 Twilight at Taronga Summer Concert Series has been announced! Having launched in 1996 and held at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo, 2015 marks the event’s 20th anniversary. With an eclectic and solid lineup each year – alongside that killer view – Twilight has become an understandably anticipated event for many in Sydney each year.
The 2016 lineup will continue the tradition and feature performances from the likes of local heroes Courtney Barnett, Josh Pyke, Birds of Tokyo, John Butler Trio, Missy Higgins and Men at Work’s Colin Hay. Opening weekend of the event will see a very special “Far From Folsom” performance on January 30th featuring Tex Perkins and The Tennessee Four performing classic Johnny Cash material. And some international flavour will be injected thanks to icons Violent Femmes, who will appear on March 4th. The event has also embraced some impressive double bills – with the amazing Ruby Boots supporting The Waifs and Vic Simms and Marlon Williams joining C.W. Stoneking.
The highlighted names are just the tip of the iceberg, however. You can check out the full lineup below.
