DZ Deathrays Lead HyperFest Lineup Announcement, Cover B-52’s Classic

With a notable lack of large-scale all-ages music festivals in the wake of Big Day Out and Soundwave’s absence, HyperFest is carrying a very important torch forward for the Australian music scene – and doing so in absolute style. The ever fantastic DZ Deathrays and Polish Club are set to headline WA’s favourite music event this coming December, with a string of some of the best acts doing the rounds of the country at the moment in tow.  


This will be the second HyperFest this year following a successful event in February, with HyperFest hitting Midland Oval on Saturday December 8. The festival promises the return of a sideshow alley market, a silent disco, live art battles, gourmet food vans, water slide, photo booth, games, merchandise and a signing tent. With such a diverse range of musical styles represented, there is well and truly something for everyone, so don’t miss your chance to snag tickets. See the full lineup in the first announcement below.
