Newcastle’s premier music festival Fat As Butter as just released its line-up for 2012 with a couple of big name international and local acts.
Fat As Butter in 2012 is starting look like a festival that gives people a real chance to relive their teen punk phase. Headlining the festival are American punk rockers who need no introduction, Good Charlotte. Wheatus is another exciting act, and the chance to close out those years of teen angst by hearing ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ live being a big drawcard. Indie rockers the Mystery Jets fly the flag for the UK, whilst Yellowcard highlight the high level of punk at the festival.
The are several big names in Aussie music also making an appearance, with rapper 360, the iconic Phil Jamieson lead Grinspoon, a host of up and coming names. Among those is the bluesy swagger of The Rubens, the earthy atmospheric indie of Art of Sleeping and the psychedelic sound of Pond. There is still more though, with Rufus, Hungry Kids of Hungary and Hey Geronimo also playing.
In what is a pretty solid line-up, there is also a host of local and international DJs gracing the dance tent, including home grown lads Yacht Club DJs mixing a live set.
Fat As Butter hits The Foreshore in Newcastle on 22nd September, 2012.
