THEY hit the Aus­tralian mu­sic scene hard in 2014 and they haven’t left since and now Pek­ing Duk are re­turn­ing to Mag­nums Ho­tel.

Adam Hyde and Reuben Styles orig­i­nally formed in Can­berra in 2010 and it didn’t take long for them to at­tract the at­ten­tion of mu­sic blogs and fans.

A few years later, their suc­cess was swift.

Af­ter break­ing through with their smash hit ‘High’ in 2014, the band has gone from strength to strength with nu­mer­ous en­tries in Triple J’s Hottest 100, an ARIA win and na­tional air­play across Aus­tralian air­waves.

The elec­tronic duo are hit­ting Air­lie’s shores as part of their Clown­town Tour which is tak­ing them across all cap­i­tal cities and re­gional cen­tres in all five Aus­tralian states in their big­gest run of head­line shows to date.

One of the coun­try’s most pop­u­lar and charis­matic elec­tronic acts, Pek­ing Duk have sold out con­sec­u­tive head­line tours at home, toured in­ter­na­tion­ally and be­come beloved sta­ples on the fes­ti­val cir­cuit in­clud­ing spots at Splen­dour in the Grass, Lol­la­palooza, Coachella and Elec­tric For­est.

Pek­ing Duk’s lat­est sin­gle Stranger fea­tur­ing El­liphant (al­ready dou­ble-plat­inum with over 16 mil­lion Spo­tify plays) reached the num­ber one Aus­tralian Artist Sin­gle for 10 weeks run­ning and re­cently placed num­ber nine in the Triple J Hottest 100.

Re­turn­ing to Mag­nums af­ter play­ing there in 2015 and promis­ing to bring a few sur­prises in their big­gest Aus­tralian tour, the duo said the Clown­town tour would be spe­cial.

All their shows are also set to feature spe­cial guests Ivan Ooze and Mall­rat.

They are one of the hottest elec­tronic acts go­ing around and they’ll be in Air­lie Beach for one night only.

Don’t miss Pek­ing Duk when they bring the beats to

Mag­nums Ho­tel for a mas­sive mid-week party.
