ORIGINAL STORY: The Melbourne Zoo Twilights summer concert series is back in action for 2019, with organisers today unveiling the first glimpse of next year’s undoubtedly epic program.
Running each weekend from 25th January to 9th March 2019, Zoo Twilights will — as always — showcase some of the most incredible musical talents from Australia and across the globe… with the secret identity of one of them already being unmasked.
American singer-songwriter, producer and Lana Del Rey collaborator Cat Power will be coming down under to perform in the amphitheatre on the zoo’s lush lawns surrounded her namesakes from the African jungle, on the heels of releasing her 10th studio album, Wanderer (out this Friday, 5th October).
As always, all proceeds raised from the event will be going to a very good cause. This year, Melbourne Zoo will be using all profits from the concert series to help save the Eastern Barred Bandicoot — which is currently listed as extinct in the wild on mainland Australia — from full blown extinction.
Last year’s Twilights saw the likes of Ben Folds, The Teskey Brothers, Cut Copy, Hiatus Kaiyote, The Preatures, Jet and more perform under the stars to help raise funds for the zoo’s important conservation efforts.
Stay tuned to Music Feeds when the full lineup drops at 8am Wednesday, 24th October.
