Dunedin Arts Festival


Show Information

Formed in Dunedin in 1980, The Chills gained deserved acclaim for their early singles including Pink Frost, I Love My Leather Jacket and Wet Blanket, released by legendary New Zealand indie label Flying Nun.

The song writing skills, vision and determination of front-man Martin Phillipps provides continuity in The Chills across the decades, through a series of line-up changes and tragedies, many international tours, and several label changes. Martin’s perseverance is inspirational and his ability to maintain a hold on to his vision despite life’s obstacles has enabled him to grow and add depth to his already great song writing.

The Chills have a large and loyal cult following around the world built on the strength of their recording and live shows in over 40 countries. There have also been numerous festival appearances including Glastonbury UK (1987), Primavera Spain (2016) and SXSW USA (2019).

The Chills are: Martin Phillipps (Guitar and Vocals), Callum Hampton (Bass and Backing Vocals), Todd Knudson (Drums and Backing Vocals), Erica Scally (Guitar, Keyboards, Violin and Backing Vocals), Oli Wilson (Keyboards and Backing Vocals)
