Taronga Zoo announces live music program for 2018

Primary tabs

Neil & Liam Finn, The Lemonheads and Dan Sultan to play the zoo early next year.

The summer series of concerts at Taronga Zoo have become an enormous hit among music lovers of all ages over the past couple of years, and given the list of artists they’ve secured for 2018, we’re sure next year will be no exception.

Throughout February and March, music lovers will be treated to performances from some of our country’s finest artists, as well as a few special international guests.


The Jezabels and Dan Sultan kick things off at the start of February, Paul Dempsey and Neil & Liam Finn take on the second weekend, while other Aussie favourites like Jebediah, Tex, Don and Charlie and Kate Miller-Heidke join international guests like The Lemonheads and Mount Kimbie throughout March.

Tickets for all shows are on sale from 9am Tuesday 17 October. All tickets include entry to the zoo and a return ferry ticket from Circular Quay and all proceeds go to Taronga’s ongoing conservation work.
