FAT AS BUTTER Festival Gets Fatter!

In just over two weeks, Newcastle’s FAT AS BUTTER Festival kicks off, and the event is still getting fatter!

Situated opposite Nobbys beach and only five minutes walk from the city centre, the setting for Fat As Butter really can’t get any better.  What’s more, Fat As Butter now boasts 38 acts over four bigger and better stages with the best production the festival has ever seen!  There’s the FAT STAGE, BUTTER STAGE, FABIO STAGE as well as the brand new, RED BULL EVENT AREA – which alone has eight massive DJs – where you can party up or just chill out all festival long.

As well as our already huge line up of international and Aussie acts, Fat As Butter is proud as punch to announce the addition of Newcastle’s triple j unearthed winners The Guppies, and the Central Coast DJs, Wolfpack, to the festival line up.

With all of this fatness, it’s no surprise that tickets are selling fast, and on the back of last year’s sell out event festival organisers are urging punters to HURRY UP and get yours to avoid disappointment!  For those people who are a little slow off the mark, we have organised plenty of last minute ticket incentives to help twist your arm, including:

  • 50 free VIP upgrades up for anyone who purchase a ticket between Tuesday October 4 and Tuesday October 11 (inclusive)
  • Heaps of ZANEROBE merchandise packs for people who buy a VIP ticket between Tuesday October 4 and Tuesday October 11 (inclusive)

What’s more, all those kids who are in the VIP area will be spoiled like Christmas, as our friends at ZANEROBE are handing out over $15,000 worth of FREE merchandise in the VIP area on the day of the festival!

For those budding festival entrepreneurs who are keen to get a taste of what it’s like to work at a music festival, you can lend a hand on the day and get some valuable festival experience in the process – just head to the Fat As Butter website to enlist as a Fat As Butter volunteer.

To help get you in the mood to party on October 22, check out the latest music from some of Fat As Butter big name acts!  Flo Rida’s ‘Good Feelin’, The Jezabels’ new video ‘Endless Summer’ from their new album PRISONER and Naughty By Nature’s ‘Perfect Party’ featuring Joe.

For everyone who has already purchased their tickets, make sure you let all your friends who haven’t know about they day – support your home grown festival!

See you all on Saturday 22nd October!!
