Twilight at Taronga — the after-hours live music series that boasts arguably the best view of Sydney Harbour as well as lots of adorable animals — has proven it's got some real cred when it comes to hosting outdoor gigs. Past lineups have featured the likes of The Jezabels, Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile, and, from the looks of things, its 25th anniversary series will be just as epic.

Held in Taronga Zoo's natural amphitheatre, the concert series will run from Friday, January 31 to Saturday, March 7, 2020. And we've got some real humdingers to look forward to including Aussie rockers Wolfmother, US gospel queen Mavis Staples, NZ synth-pop duo Broods and the Gravy King himself Paul Kelly (who'll be performing with composer James Ledger, singer Alice Keith and the Seraphim Trio). Band member from You Am I, Powderfinger, Jet and Spiderbait will also come together as the Australian Rock Collective to perform hits off The Beatles' Abbey Road album with Linda Bull. And, as always, the ABBA tribute act Bjorn Again will be back by popular demand.

You can BYO a picnic, but there'll also be gourmet hampers available onsite alongside a handful of food trucks. Tickets include discounted same-day entry into the zoo (so you can sneak in a visit to your favourite mammal, bird or reptile beforehand) and, if you want to make a weekend of it, you can add on a night at Taronga's luxe new eco-retreat.

As always, all proceeds will go back into Taronga's ongoing conservation work, including its campaign to protect our marine life. So, you can see a gig and feel good about helping the zoo. Get excited and check out the full lineup:
