Globetrotting party starters Peking Duk keep the summer rolling with an epic DJ set drawing on their biggest bangers, influences and faves for a performance that’s sure to be one of the festival’s total blasts.
Formed in 2010 by Canberra musicians Adam Hyde and Reuben Styles, electronic production duo Peking Duk are known for their dance-oriented, rock- and pop-influenced sound and cheeky, party-ready attitude.

Coachella performances, headline Australian tours and more multi-platinum hits followed – “Say My Name” featuring Benjamin Joseph, “Stranger” featuring Elliphant, “Fake Magic” featuring AlunaGeorge, “Wasted” “Let You Down” featuring Icona Pop – along with 2018’s triple-platinum EP, Reprisal.
In 2020, Peking Duk dropped the dreamy “Move” and “Nothing to Love About Love”, a collaborating wwith UK stars The Wombats.
