Following the model of Mayday in Germany, hosted by Westbam for the first time in 1991, the first Hyperstate was held in Oslo at May 1st 1995. Approximately 7,000 people were at this event where, among other things, The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers and Dreadzone played. It was " Dub the Universe " with Torje Norén spearheaded who arranged Hyper State the first four years.
Organizers of Hyper State focused initially on large and therefore expensive artists. By moving the event to the attractive date of April 30 they had not to compete with more established raves like Mayday in Germany and they could continue to attract big names. Towards the end of the 90s , the event was marked by less expensive live performers , giving place to a more streamlined profile and trance DJs. In 1999 Inge Nilsen and Morten Pedersen in " Temple of Love" took over the event.
