HyperFest announces 2018 date, opens applications for bands and DJs
One of the state's only all-ages events is shaping up bigger and better again.
Something integral to the ongoing success of any live music scene is the fostering of young pups who not only love music, but love getting out to shows. It's something we forget as it gets harder and harder to cater to young audiences, with most venues around Perth who normally serve alcohol unable to host all-ages events in their venues. It means we lose a generation of younger kids who'll grow up and want to go out to shows and start bands. And with all that in mind, it's why festivals like WA's HyperFest are increasingly important on our gig-going landscape.
And following a ripper 2017 event, HyperFest has announced it'll be returning to its homeground of Midland Oval on February 24 of next year. It's set to feature two main stages, a chill-out stage, gourmet food vans, water slides and a dunk tank, a climbing wall, games and merchandise and other attractions.
Last year the festival played host to acts like Amy Shark (picture above, by Mark Piasecki), Allday, Asta and more, joined by a host exciting young local acts. And if you'd like to be one of those local acts, applications are now open for bands, solo artists and DJs to take part in the festival. Just head the HyperFest WEBSITE and apply before November 5.
