A large crowd turned out to watch local music legends The Chills in concert at the Dunedin Botanic Garden this afternoon.

The free concert was to open the garden's 150th celebrations, and a crowd estimated at between 2000 and 3000 took advantage of a fine day to enoy the gig.

Frontman Martin Phillips led the band through a set that included Pink Frost, Wet Blanket, Heavenly Pop Hit and a rare performance of Doledrums.

They finished with rousing versions of Leather Jacket and Rolling Moon that got the crowd up on their feet.

The gig marks the beginning of a year of botanic celebrations, which includes hosting the 2013 Global Botanic Gardens Congress in October
