Peta Lukács was born on 6 April, 1978 in Pápa, Hungary. He began to learn music at the age of seven and three years later he got his first electric guitar. He was self-taught until he moved to Budapest in 1996, since he was admitted to the Music Institute of Kőbánya. He graduated with excellent results in 2001.

Peta got an early recognition within the music industry: at the age of 14 he won the first electric guitar competition and in 1996 the greatest television talent scout of Hungary (’Ki Mit Tud?’) in the ’solo musician’ category. Moreover, Peta won several minor competitions and begun to perform in more and more bands.

With the phenomenal drummer Gergő Borlai they formed „European Mantra” in 2001 which’s style could be described as a combination of fusion, jazz and metal. European Mantra soon became a cult band of the Hungarian music scene.

In 2006 Peta joined Bikini, one of the most popular rock bands of Hungary. They play a considerable amount of shows for thousands of fans.

In 2013 Peta released his first solo album entitled „War & Peace” which won the greatest Hungarian music award called ’Fonogram’ in rock/metal category.
