Are you ready for a festival feast?
Over the past four years, the Fat As Butter Festival has grown into one of the … well… FATTEST musical and cultural events in Newcastle, and indeed the country. But this year, we’re set to exceed all expectations with a line up of local and international acts that is sure to send your musical taste buds into a fat frenzy!
Following the announcement last week of the first two acts, The Living End and Naughty By Nature, we’re now proud to announce the second round of artists for 2011.

EMPIRE OF THE SUN
THE LIVING END
FLO RIDA [USA]
NAUGHTY BY NATURE [USA]
ASTON SHUFFLE [LIVE]
CALLING ALL CARS
Plus Triple J unearthed and Fabio Winners
And that’s just for starters! We’ve got even more big name acts still to be announced!
In the past two years, Empire Of The Sun has grown from a one of Australia’s best musical talents to one of the most exciting acts in the international music arena. This year, the group has headlined Coachella, Ultra Music Festival, and Governor’s Island in New York, has attracted the attention of celebrity guests from Usher to Katy Perry, and has notched up 1 million album sales world wide.
In 2011, Empire Of The Sun returns to Oz with a new live show to lead the charge in what is a huge array of local talent featured on the Fat As Butter line up. From the rocking sounds of Sparkadia and British India, to indie sensations Cloud Control and The Jezabels, to the hip hop beats of the legendary The Herd, the rising talents of Jonathan Boulet, and, of course, all-time favourites The Living End, this Aussie contingent is simply fat-as.
All the way from the U.S. of A, international RnB heavyweight, Flo Rida, joins fellow country-men Naughty By Nature, to add the perfect spice of the red white and blue to the Fat As Butter menu. And bringing the sounds of the UK clubs to the Fat As Butter mix is world-renowned DJ, Sinden. Having remixed some of the biggest names in music today including Basement Jaxx, Chromeo and Mark Ronson, his addition to the line up is sure to get the crowds jumping!
The crew at Fat As Butter has been working hard in jazzing up this years’ festival playground to make sure you have the best Fat As Butter time ever! This year there’ll be a bigger entrance point, larger viewing grounds, more bars, more festivities and of course, loads more music!
As if that wasn’t enough, for the very first time in 2011, Fat As Butter will be offering a “Time To Pay” ticketing option, allowing punters to pay off their festival ticket in three installments; a great option for students and those counting pennies. To register for the offer, just go to the Fat As Butter website, click on the big pink button that says ‘REGISTER NOW FOR PRESALE TICKETS’, and sign-up….simple!
With three sold out years under its belt, you’ll need to get in early to reserve your spot for what is going to be Fat As Butter’s finest chapter yet. And don’t forget to stay tuned for our next round of line up announcements!
See you all on Saturday 22nd October!!
