MELBOURNE trio Camp Cope will lead the City of Swan’s HyperFest 2018, off the back of their appearance at Falls Festival and ahead of their national tour in March.

The group will be joined by Cronulla-based indie youngster Ruby Fields, South Australian mosh lords Falcifer, with local heroes J.F.K, Kopano, Lost Honours, Muka Vhattie and Vacant Home rounding the announcement out.

They’ll join HyperFest’s stacked line-up, which includes Carmouflage Rose, Dear Seattle and Winter Corner.

City of Swan Deputy Mayor Kevin Bailey said the February 24 festival at Midland Oval would have three huge stages packed with live acts.

“In addition there will be a huge silent disco featuring 27 of WA’s best and brightest producers and DJs,” he said.

Midland/Guildford ward councillor Mark Elliott said the all-ages (12+) drug, smoke and alcohol-free event would also have a heap of other entertainment on offer.

“This year’s festival will also feature a dodgeball arena, water slides, sideshow alley market, climbing wall, live art battles, gourmet food vans, photo booth, games, merchandise and a signing tent for all of your favourite artists,” he said.
