Fat As Butter 2012 Lineup Announcement Date Revealed

Written by Brayden Darke on June 5, 2012

2012 is fast becoming the year in which 1990’s European dance acts invade Australia – and what better way to celebrate our nostalgia then to head to Newcastle’s Fat As Butter this September. So far we’ve got Eiffel 65, N-Trance and Wheatus appearing on the lineup, but now we’re told that the full lineup will come on Thursday, 21st June Tuesday, 26th June, and we’re sure there will be plenty more great acts, both old and new.

Update 26/06/2012: Fat As Butter 2012 Lineup has been announced!

Eiffel 65 are the Italian trio responsible for their inescapable 1999 signature hit Blue (Da Ba Dee) – which some people credit as the birth of autotune and pitch correction. The track spent nine weeks at number one in Australia and went three times platinum. They followed that up with their equally-as-catchy hit Move Your Body and their oh-so-appropriately titled album Europop, before disappearing into oblivion…until now.

Meanwhile, N-Trance hit the scene in 1990 with their reworked disco numbers, and after just two albums, had enough hits to release a best-of compilation. The biggest one of these was Do Ya Think I’m Sexy? back in 1997. They toured Australia with Run DMC in 1998 and apparently regrouped a few years ago to offer their loyal fans a new album and return to the live circuit.

Wheatus, who are best known for their hit Teenage Dirtbag, now consists of Brendan B. Brown as the only remaining member of the band from that era, and he has continued to release albums over the past 12 years.

Last year we saw slightly more hip hop bands such as Empire of the Sun, the Jezabels, and The Living End join Naughty By Nature, Australia’s The Herd, and famously – Flo-Rida, who didn’t show up in the end.

The full lineup will be announced on Thursday, 21st June Tuesday, 26th June.
