Melbourne Zoo Twilights – Stereolab & Mavis Staples

fri - sat

The iconic outdoor concert series showcases a diverse mix of top local and international acts in breathtaking open-air surrounds, with all proceeds from this year’s series going towards Zoos Victoria’s efforts to save the critically endangered Mountain Pygmy-possum from extinction. This Friday, after a decade-long hiatus, UK art pop pioneers Stereolab will make a much-anticipated return to the stage, delivering Melbourne fans the same lush, layered sounds that established them as one of the ’90s most influential indie acts. On Saturday, a true living legend, US gospel, soul and R&B queen Mavis Staples will grace the stage. An alchemist of American music, the unstoppable performer has collaborated with the likes of Prince, Bob Dylan, Ben Harper and Arcade Fire.
