Shoulderpads and legwarmers on trend for 80s themed concert under the stars

Published on 4 October 2017

Ku-ring-gai’s popular annual Twilight Concert returns to Wahroonga park this month.

Residents around Ku-ring-gai are sure to be busy digging through their wardrobes to perfect their look for this year’s free Twilight Concert in the Park, which is set to have a distinctive 1980s vibe.

The entertainment for this year includes John Farnham Tribute Band and Big City Beat, who will cover the biggest hits from the decade of fluoro and rock.

Under a slowly dimming sky, concertgoers will be able to set up a picnic rug and enjoy the sounds of the eighties.

Mayor Jennifer Anderson said the Twilight Concert was a beloved Ku-ring-gai tradition. 

“The event attracts upwards of three thousand music lovers each year,” she said. 

The festivities officially begin at 5pm, but Council is encouraging punters to rock up early to take advantage of the food, wine, and coffee stalls at the event.

Concertgoers are encouraged to pack their own picnic basket for a thrifty night under the stars, but are reminded that the event is glass-free.

The parking in surrounding streets is limited, so Council encouraging the use of public transport to and from the park.

The Twilight Concert in the Park is proudly supported by major sponsors Crystal Productions and Soames Real Estate.
