Perth’s only drug, smoke and alcohol-free festival, HyperFest, is set to touch down at Midland Oval on February 24, 2018, on the tail of a hugely successful turnout in 2017.

City of Swan Mayor Mick Wainwright said last year’s event saw 3,500 people converge on Midland Oval to check out over 66 incredible artists across four live stages and a huge silent disco.

Last year’s line-up showcased a host of talented artists, including Amy Shark, Allday, Hands Like Houses, Asta, Ocean Grove, Rag n’ Bone and many more,” he said.

The highly anticipated line-up for the 2018 event is set to be announced this November.

All Western Australian bands and DJs are encouraged sign up to apply for their spot on the 2018 HyperFest line-up before November 5 via www.hyperfest.com.au.

The 2018 event is set to feature two live main stages, an additional chill-out stage, gourmet food vans, water-based activities such as water slides and a dunk tank, a climbing wall and other attractions, games and merchandise.

There will also be a tent for signing to give fans the chance to meet their favourite artists.

Midland/Guildford Ward Councillor Mark Elliott said it was exciting to see the level of talent on show each year.

In 2017, more than 150 local bands and 40 DJs from all over Australia applied to get involved in Hyperfest,” he said.

The Hyper volunteers do a great job ensuring HyperFest is a success, and the festival just keeps getting bigger and better each year.

HyperFest will take over Midland Oval on Saturday, 24 February from 12-9pm.
