The group’s accolades to date include three MTV Europe Music Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, an American Music Award, a Billboard Women in Music award, four iHeart Radio Music Awards and six Teen Choice Awards.

KFC Edgefest will kick off in Christchurch at the Horncastle Arena on Friday 3rd November. The Festival heads to TSB Bank Arena in Wellington on Saturday 4th November, with the final event taking place in Auckland at Spark Arena on Sunday 5th November.

Performing KFC Edgefest alongside the international acts are some of New Zealand’s stellar contemporary musical talent, including hip-hop star Kings (Don’t Worry Bout It) and singer-songwriter Mitch James (Move On).
