Poor ticket sales force cancellation of Hyperfest in Midland next month

HYPERFEST organisers say they have been forced to make the difficult decision to cancel the all-ages music event in Midland, after poor ticket sales.

The City of Swan, in conjunction with the Hyper Team, apologised to the artists and ticket holders who had already committed to this year’s festival.

Swan chief executive Mike Foley said refunds would be automatically processed on to the credit card used for the original purchase within the next three business days.

“If you paid cash or EFTPOS at an outlet, please return to the same outlet to obtain a refund,” he said.

“Hyper, the all-ages drug, smoke and alcohol free event in WA, has been operating for more than 15 years by a talented group of young people and students who have been able to grow and develop skills in events management, marketing, community development, business and much more.

“The City is extremely proud of the Hyper Team for delivering this fantastic event for so many years.

“The Hyper team have learnt a lot throughout this difficult process and hope to regroup and present a new event for Western Australian young people in 2019.”
