Mothers Day @ Bluebonnet 2019

Let’s face it, Mums are pretty great. It’s outrageous how much they put up with from us and although we feel it’s important to celebrate them every day, taking one day to make them feel extra special is the least we can do.

Bookings open from midday.

The 2 course set menu is $60pp and includes, mains, shared desserts, and a glass of sparkling for Mum.

Bookings Essential

Onya Mums.

Bluebonnet @ Boogie 2019: A New Dawn Rising

Boogie is 13. And it’s a new dawn rising. How did this even happen? It wasn’t long ago that we first came to shake it loose together. Back then, Boogie was but a beautiful dream. A transcendent moment. The sound of bells and the smell of flowers. Boogie kids laughing, running through the morning mist to the dulcet tones of Tony Joe White, sitar and tabla. We were babes in arms, now we’re all grown up, teenagers – but there’s nothing awkward about this. Dealing with the losses and looking up at the stars, we’re dreaming into our new sunshine. Like a sky of infinite little lights, we are many, but we are truly one come Easter. We have each other, and Boogie has us all.

The first rays to shine a light on Boogie's new dawn ...

Mabel and the Bluebonnet team will have all of your delicious needs covered for the whole weekend!

Marlon Williams @ Zoo Twilights

Marlon Williams brings his cinematic strings, rollicking guitar, tender piano moments and that voice – the one that’s seen him described as “the impossible love child of Elvis, Roy Orbison and Townes Van Zandt” – to the Twilights lawn. Since the release of his 2018 record, ‘Make Way For Love’, the New Zealand singer-songwriter has hit the road with everyone from Band Of Horses and City & Colour to the one and only Bruce Springsteen; brought the house down in a live performance on Conan; and shared the screen with Lady Gaga in A Star is Born.

Marlon Williams is joined at Zoo Twilights by some of his biggest fans, Bluebonnet Barbecue. We’ve never personally met, but Marlon we love you. Please come and eat our food.

The Internet @ Zoo Twighlights

Like a many-headed creature passing notes back and forth, The Internet is an unpredictable creative collective that demonstrates the strength in collaboration. After each releasing solo records in 2017, The Internet’s five members – Syd, Matt Martians, Steve Lacy, Patrick Paige II and Christopher Smith – came back together to create their new album, ‘Hive Mind’, a kaleidoscopic journey into neo-soul. See their specific sonic chemistry bubble over as the sun goes down over Melbourne Zoo.

Supporting The Internet at Zoo Twilights will be Melbourne artist Bluebonnet who is known for their smokey and savoury yet imminently delicious meat hop flavours. Inspired by a variety of eateries and eras, the young restaurant displays  a certain sense of maturity way beyond it’s years.

HANSON @ Zoo Twilights

Both shows now SOLD OUT!

It’s hard to believe it’s been over 20 years since Hanson first burst onto the pop scene – that time’s flown in an MmmBop! After touring non-stop – everywhere from Tulsa to Tokyo, earning multiple Grammy nominations and founding their own independent record label – Isaac, Taylor and Zac return to Australia in 2019 for a show packed with their catchy catalogue of pop tracks from the past two decades. This classic Hanson concert is a must-see for any of the 16 million people who owned a copy of the band’s breakout debut record ‘Middle of Nowhere’ on CD or cassette.

Supporting the Hanson brothers is Bluebonnet Barbecue, a Meat Slinging outfit from Brunswick east whose greatest hits include “I Love You Brisket” and “Be My Pork Rib”.
