HYPERFEST organisers have announced the all-ages music festival will return to Midland on February 20 bigger and better than before.

Now running from noon-9pm on a Saturday, the organisers have added a foam dance pit, sideshow alley market, live art battles and silent disco beach party to next year’s bill.

The 2016 line-up for the Midland Oval event will be announced on November 20.

More than 150 local bands and 40 DJs applied to secure a spot on the HyperFest line-up, with bands from all over Australia applying to play the festival.

Swan Mayor Mick Wainwright said HyperFest provided many opportunities for youth development.
