Hillside Festival 2019
July 12 - 14
Chippy Nonstop got her name for a reason. She is an audacious, undeniable party starter with a penchant for travelling the world and always bringing her unique energy. As a sound selector she makes the dance floor shake, but there’s much more to the story. Chippy is a DJ, rapper, songwriter, writer, producer, activist and organizer of community events. She is of Indian descent, but is more of a cultural nomad; she was born in Dubai, grew up in Zambia, has citizenship in Canada, lived in Los Angeles, Oakland, New York, and currently resides in Toronto after a very public deportation; (Fader’s coverage here). Chippy Nonstop is currently working on new music-related endeavors including a project called Intersessions, a sound initiative curated by and for women & the LGBTQ+ community; more info is available on our Intersessions webpage. She is also DJing, recording and has recently released two tracks; ‘Bubble Up’ dropped on Thump, while ‘Lotto’ with UK producer Nightwave (Fool’s Gold) premiered on The Fader.
