Midland/Guildford ward councillor Mark Elliott said HyperFest 2017 continued to be Perth’s biggest and best drug, smoke and alcohol free all-ages festival.

“The event is run by young people, for young people, so it has something for everyone,” he said.

“The Hyper Team of volunteers should be commended for the great job they do and it is great to see their success in continuing to build the festival.”

The festival, presented by Drug Aware, is an all-ages (12+) drug, smoke and alcohol free event.
