First look at Hyper festival 2018’s huge line-up

Perth’s best boutique all-ages festival is back in 2018 with a huge line-up of scorching hot local and national talent.

Hyper is set to take over Midland Oval once again on Saturday 24 February from 12pm-9pm, with three talent-packed main stages and loads of entertainment.

The first announcement (in alphabetical order) features Arno Faraji, Carmouflage Rose, Carla Geneve, Columbus, Cursed Earth, Dear Seattle, Feels, Glass Wave, Heaps Good Friends, In Hearts Wake, Introvert, Maddy Jane, POW! Negro, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Raksha, Sly Withers, Tired Lion, WAAX and Winter Corner.

Byron Bay’s In Hearts Wake have been changing minds and lives since 2012 and with fourth album Ark they are looking to inspire change like never before. Released in 2017 via UNFD, Ark pays homage to the past and signals a bright new future for conscious heavy music with the band partnering up with Tangaroa Blue for We Are Waterborne: An In Hearts Wake Initiative to lead a series of clean-ups along of some of the most polluted waterways on the east coast of Australia.

Fronted by the enigmatic Sophie Hopes, Tired Lion's infectious melodies, which are strewn throughout their 2017 debut record Dumb Days, are brought forth with raw honesty and intensity, calling back to the rich tradition of strong Australian front women. Their fresh take on 90’s nostalgia will ring both true and loudly to the ears.

17-year-old Arno Faraji’s rise to success following his triple j Unearthed High win (for his song destiny’s) can only be described as meteoric and he’s only just finished his Year 12 exams.

A huge array of upcoming talent will also join In Hearts Wake from interstate, with Carmouflage Rose (QLD), Columbus (QLD), Dear Seattle (NSW), Heaps Good Friends (SA), Introvert (NSW), Maddy Jane (TAS) and WAAX (QLD) all set to visit Hyper for the first time.

City of Swan Mayor David Lucas said local WA artists would also get the chance to shine.

“The Hyper team is excited to announce that Carla Geneve, Cursed Earth, Feels, Glass Wave, POW! Negro, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Raksha, Sly Withers and Winter Corner will be joining the festival’s line-up on the day and applications are still open to join the huge second line-up announcement, due in early January,” he said.

“Local DJs will also be on the decks all day in the silent disco, with DJ applications open now.”

HyperFest 2017 will also feature a sideshow alley market, live art battles, gourmet food vans, water slides, photo booth, games, merchandise and a signing tent for all of your favourite artists.

Midland/Guildford Ward Councillor, Mark Elliott said HyperFest 2018 continued to be Perth’s biggest and best drug, smoke and alcohol-free all-ages festival.

“The event is run by the young people in the Hyper Team, for young people, so it has something for everyone,” he said.

The festival, presented by Drug Aware, is an all-ages (12+) drug, smoke and alcohol free event and would not be possible without the support of so many organisations, including Drug Aware, Healthway, RAC, Lotterywest, Midland Gate Shopping Centre, and Moshtix.
