Drug Aware Hyper will take place the day after on Saturday, March 14. Besides Mallrat, Baker Boy and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, the bill includes Spacey Jane, Clowns, Jai Waetford, DJ Denim, Alter Boy and Phoneline Valentine. Tickets to Drug Aware Hyper cost $25, and also give access to a full 18-hole mini-golf course.

The beloved all-ages (12+) festival is making a comeback after its 2018 cancellation over poor ticket sales. Two weeks out, Hyperfest had only sold 20 per cent of the tickets that needed to be sold for the event to go ahead, WA Today reported at the time.

Acts like DZ Deathrays, Polish Club, Alpha Wolf and Polaris were on the 2018 lineup.

In July, the festival announced that it had “taken some time to work through audience and industry feedback” after the stumble, and would return in 2020.
