Resident DJs

Sunset at Chinchilla is heralded with live DJ sets. Come Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the music comes alive as our resident international DJs Tess Prins and Charles Webster hit the decks from late afternoon until sunset. Their singular priority will be to take you on an incredible musical journey from start to end. Check out Tess and Charles’ BIO below to get you in the groove. Don’t forget to make your booking and capture your own special Chinchilla moment.

DJ Tess


Tess’ passion for deep, soulful, sexy and sensual house music comes to life when she’s on deck duty. It’s never work for Tess. She loves to play to a live audience where she can share her passion and global music collection with like-minded souls.

A global traveler, with global residencies, Cape Town is where Tess loves most to play. And there is no better place to play than outdoors from late afternoon until sunset. There is no better soundtrack to Summer.

Chinchilla rooftop café & bar will be Tess’s home every Friday and Saturday from 4:30-8pm. Please join her as she shares her music journey creating magical Chinchilla moments with you.




DJ Charles Webster


UK born, Charles Webster has sold over 250,000 albums without ever being considered a sell-out. His remixes continue to light up charts, dance-floors and radio playlists worldwide. The number of quality compilations still eager to feature his work, old and new, proves his lasting market appeal.

2018 will see a huge amount of activity from Charles, amongst continued remixing and one-off singles he is releasing a new house based album in South Africa on Sony Records (and worldwide) featuring a collection of 10 new songs recorded with South African, UK and American guests: Shara Nelson (Massive Attack), Ingrid Chavez (Prince/Paisley Park), Sio, Sipho ‘Hotstix’ Mabuse, Terra Deva (Shakedown), Emile Chick, Thandi Draai (Culoe De Song) and Burial.

Charles runs a music mentoring initiative in Cape Town, ‘African Dance Music and Technology’ (ADMT) and hopes to take this all over South Africa in the future, spreading knowledge and inspiration to young people and helping them achieve their musical ambitions.

Chinchilla rooftop café& bar will be Charles’s home every Sunday from 4:30-8pm
