Lee Man Hei, 33, an electronic DJ known as Simon Girl who performed at the festival, said she wishes to promote electronic music to the public.

“My goal is to make music for the future,” said Lee, adding that she is inspired by other local indie bands, such as The Hertz.

Simon Girl, a former girl group member, transformed into a DJ who plays electronic Christian music at the same event.

"The Hertz also knows how to bring up the scene's atmosphere, interact with the audience,” she said. “This is what performers should do. Pursue something instead of repeating what others do and stay in your comfort zone”. 

Members of the public gathered to enjoy live performances at the festival.

“Hypersonic Fest is a good music festival because it contains different forms and styles of Christian music. Also, the audience on this platform can interact with the artists and worship together,” said Esther Choy, 20, who attended the event.
