Hyde Park Hi-Fi presents Hi-Fest, an independent electronic music festival showcasing some of
the top names in experimental pop and electronic music from around the world, as well as a
host of Perth/Boorloo’s emerging talents.

This one-day grass-roots music festival will be hosted at the 1500 pax Port Beach Brewery
and Garden Bar on April 13th 2024, and will feature two stages, curated in collaboration with
Fashion label and Perth rave icon GARBAGEtv.

The event will also be home to a series of pop-ups, which will showcase pieces from a number
of up-and-coming Australian designers and artists.

This year, the festival will be headlined by CRUSH3d, Ninajirachi, CaucasianOpportunities, Bad
Sista, Prophecy Girl, Frog Chaser, HWLS, and DJ G2G.

Ninajirachi, who has been making an impact on the electronic music landscape since 2017 and
contributing to Australia’s blooming left-field electronic pop scene with her mini-fest Dark
Crystal, and is hot off of her first North American headlining tour is expected to bring a hybrid
live/DJ set to hi-fest, featuring her signature blend of experimental organic textures alongside
danceable beats.

Blending equal parts naughty and nice, CRUSH3d, who will be joining a HPHF lineup for the
first time, has been taking the underground by storm with his unique brand of techno, house and
hip hop. From playing alongside the likes of Skin On Skin and Willaris K, CRUSH3d has
moved from strength to strength since his online release ‘Welcome 2 The Party’ was met with
widespread acclaim by DJs and fans alike. His early tracks and unreleased IDs have regularly
appeared in clubs and mixes around the world-including BBC Radio 1 Essential Mixes, Mix
Mag shows, Rinse FM radio, and plays at Australian festivals such as Beyond the Valley.
CaucasianOpportunities will also be returning to Perth, coming hot off of her debut Boiler
Room appearance last October. A Naarm based event Curator and DJ, Caucasian
Opportunities’ sound is shaped by her experience as a first generation migrant, featuring a
heavy focus on the heavy bass lines derived from her upbringing in multi-genre household,
balancing elements of jungle and DnB with the rhythm of techno, CO’s sound is nostalgic of
early UK grime Rave Culture and black-American ghetto rhythms.

She will be joined by Grammy nominated producer and DJ, HWLS. HWLS, who resides in
Boorloo/Perth, has made a career producing for some of the biggest names in music. He has
production credits for the likes of Flume, Joji, A$AP Rocky, Vic Mensa, Ty Dolla $ign and
Denzel Curry, to name a few. His solo productions combine forward-thinking sound design with
pitched vocals and warm house drums and pads, and his expansive knowledge of musical
genre informs his eclectic yet thematically unified DJ sets.

HPHF community favourite Prophecy Girl is also making an appearance at the 2024
installment of Hi-Fest. Having made a name for themselves opening for acts like Slayyyter,
Machine Girl, What So Not, Lil Mariko and Charli XCX, PG is a beacon of community and a
champion of the Australian hyperpop scene, collaborating widely and platforming smaller artists.
Prophecy Girl has been with HPHF from the start, submitting a mix for our Soundcloud mix
series in 2021, and subsequently appearing at HPHF, Yassi-Fi and Nicki Minaj 2’s concept
event #DILFWORLD, as well as being hosted by HPHF for the Perth/Boorloo stop of their Debut
Australian Headlining tour.

Also present is hero of forward-thinking Latin club music, BADSISTA, hailing from Sao Paulo.
BADSISTA has carved out a name for themself in the contemporary electronic through their
cohesive yet eclectic selections, blending house and techno with baile funk and deconstructed
club, and having made multiple Boiler Room appearances of the last few years, with plays at
Dekmantel, DRAAIMOLEN and other notable festivals, and was recently named one of
Mixmag’s top 25 producers who defined the year 2023.

For the tightly-knit creative scene of Boorloo (Perth), WA, the second installment of Hi-Fest is
the culmination of the efforts of an artistic community that has been built from the ground up
since 2020, starting with small house shows, featuring lineups comprising of friends with a
shared passion for the more care-free forms of electronic and pop music.

Featuring acclaimed artists from Australia and the rest of the world, the festival embodies the
spirit of collaboration. Made possible only through the sharing of experiences, knowledge, and a
DIY ethos, Hi-Fest is a festival that is only made possible due to its foundations in a growing
community in the most isolated capital city in the world.

We want to extend a warm invitation to any and all people who value music, friendship and
community to a safe, independently run, inclusive music festival, where patrons are free to be
their genuine selves.
