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

HyperFest will take over Midland Oval on February 24 from 12pm-9pm, with three talent-packed main stages featuring 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.

Arno Faraji’s (17) rise to success following his triple j Unearthed High win has been meteoric and he’s only just finished his Year 12 exams.

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

“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.”

Midland/Guildford ward councillor Mark Elliott said HyperFest 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.
