Peking Duk to Return for Deep, Hard 'N' Funky
For 15 years Deep, Hard ’N’ Funky has been the dance clique’s go-to rave.
Since its inception as a predominantly house orientated event in 2000, the festival has now extended its reach to include multiple subdivisions under the dance and EDM umbrella, and is boasted as New Zealand’s favourite dance party.
Leading the line-up is Canberra electronic duo Peking Duk. Last in the country ringing in the New Year at Gisborne’s BW Summer Festival and then closing out the Heineken Baseline Afterparty, the renowned party boys Adam Hyde and Reuben Styles have had a whirlwind 12 months. Their breakout single ‘High’ took out Best Dance Release at the ARIA Music Awards of 2014, clocked in at number 2 on last year’s Triple J Top 100 and now holds a double platinum certification. They most recently played to an enthusiastic crowd at Coachella and have a busy year ahead on the festival circuit through the US and Canada.
Alongside Peking Duk, the bill features Bristol drum and bass duo Loadstar, West London dubstep producer Caspa, MC Tiki Taane, globally minded dance ensemble Weird Together, Auckland DJ duo Jetski Safari, Prime Minister John Key’s son’s amateur DJ group Troskey, plus local DJs Dan Aux, Tim Phin, Stack & Piece, Jaycen A’Mour and more.
