Archery Tag is a mix between archery, dodge ball, laser tag and so much more. Players are divided into 2 teams of 5 players each, with each team trying to be the first one to either hit all of their opponents out of the game, or to knock out all of the centers of their opponents 5-spot target. Players use our "non-lethal" arrows to "hit" the opponents. Each team is separated by a "safe zone". Teammates that have been taken out by an arrow may be brought back into the game if an arrow is caught in mid-flight by someone on their team, or a center spot is knocked out.

Sweat, booze, good vibes and great music - whip it all together and you’ve got Peking Duk.

Confirmed legends Adam Hyde and Reuben Styles are Australia’s favourite duo. They’re the guys wearing matching tracksuits on the red carpet, the showmen going viral with their onstage antics, the everyday heroes bringing fans backstage for a beer and the hitmakers responsible for your favourite songs.

The Duk started their ascent in 2014 with ‘High’, the ARIA-winning, four-times platinum single that was the #1 most played track on triple j that year and #2 in the Hottest 100. They followed that up with two more huge hits – the triple platinum ‘Take Me Over’, and the gold-certified ‘Say My Name’ – before returning in late 2016 with ‘Stranger’, a collaboration with Swedish cool girl Elliphant that’s already racked up 20 million streams on Spotify. How’s that for a track record?

No one knows how to put on a party quite like the boys: their live show will leave you sweat-soaked, champagne-sprayed and picking bits of confetti out of your hair for days.
