KFC launches music festival on Cockatoo with Peking Duk


Limits simply do not exist for KFC. In the past year alone, sellers of finger-licking goodies have tested the waters frying oil with games, has taken the hospitality industry by storm and, as we reported yesterday, entered the drone game by launching an aerial delivery program right here in Australia. So what could be the next step for the House of Chookie? Did the Colonel fall to his knees and cry because there were no more worlds to conquer? Not enough. Because now KFC is trying to hold its own music festival on Cockatoo Island, headlined by local session lords Peking Duk.

Dubbed the KFC FEASTIVAL, Sydney Harbor’s biggest event of 2022 will also be your extremely limited opportunity to sample the Peking Cluk burger (which is free with all-day entry). Created in collaboration with TikToker Dimsimlim, this bad boy features a slice of fried chicken from KFC’s original recipe coated in a hoisin glaze topped with dried spring onions, cucumbers and coleslaw.

“We’re thrilled to team up with KFC to bring together two of our favorite things: great music and great food,” say Peking Duk’s Reuben Styles and Adam Hyde, who are set to unveil a brand new live show . they have been tinkering for more than two years.

“As a fried gold lover, working with KFC to create our own burger is truly the dream, and we can’t wait to play our music for you. [at the festival] while you eat the burger – the perfect score for the perfect Cockatoo Island meal.”

“We are proud and thrilled to be able to partner with such incredible talent, not only for an incredible concert, but also to be able to cement our musical relationship with the launch of Australia’s first artist collaboration product.”
