HYPERFEST will be back in 2018 bigger and better.

The City of Swan announced the Midland-based festival would return after a successful 2017 event.

Swan Mayor Mick Wainwright said this year’s event saw 3500 people converge on Midland Oval to check out 66 incredible artists across four live stages and a huge silent disco.

“A highly anticipated line-up for the 2018 event is set to be announced in November,” he said.

There will also be a tent for fans to meet their favourite artist.

Artists Amy Shark, Allday, Hands Like Houses, Asta, Ocean Grove, and Rag n’ Bone performed at this year’s festival.

Councillor Mark Elliott said it was exciting to see the level of talent on show each year.

“In 2017, more than 150 local bands and 40 DJs from all over Australia applied to get involved in HyperFest,” he said.

“The Hyper volunteers do a great job ensuring HyperFest is a success and the festival just keeps getting bigger and better each year.”

HyperFest will take over Midland Oval on Saturday February 24 from noon to 9pm.

HyperFest is a drug, smoke and alcohol-free music festival.
