JUST ANNOUNCED - AMY SHARK, TYNE-JAMES ORGAN, MALLRAT, CERES AND HEAPS MORE! Catch Allday, Hands Like Houses, Asta, Hockey Dad, Nicole Millar and more when they hit Midland Oval for HyperFest on Saturday 18 February 2017. This all-ages festival features four live stages, silent disco, water slides, signing tent, market stalls, amazing food and heaps more!
Melbourne-based rapper Allday, Canberra heavyweights Hands Like Houses, Tasmanian singer-songwriter Asta and Windang surf-rockers Hockey Dad will be joined by Nicole Millar, Ocean Grove, Saviour, Totally Unicorn, Hannahband and more for an electrifying nine hours on Midland Oval this February.
Allday came to the spotlight in 2014 following the success of his debut album Startup Cult, and has since been busy selling out national tours, supporting Lily Allen and having countless festival appearances. Recently singles "Monster Truck" and "Sides" have been dropped in anticipation of his upcoming second album.
Following the success of their third album Dissonants, Hands Like Houses have spent the last year touring extensively throughout Australia, the UK and the US. Tracks "I Am", "New Romantics" and "Colourblind" has seen the album reach #7 on the ARIA charts.
Tasmanian songstress Asta has come far since winning Triple J Unearthed High in 2012 with the track "My Heart Is On Fire". Last year she released "Dynamite" featuring Allday before embarking on a national tour in March.
Surf rock duo Hockey Dad join HyperFest after their sellout show at Jack Rabbit Slims in October. Their signature pop sound on hits "Can't Have Them" and "Seaweed" are fundamental for a Perth summer's day.
