Fat As Butter, one of the biggest parties to take place at The Foreshore in Newcastle, has now locked in the line up announce dates as well at the date for the festival’s return for 2013.
Get your diaries out and prepare to cross out all plans for Saturday, 26th October because, as of now, you’ve got something better to prepare for – Fat As Butter 2013. The line up announcement has been confirmed for a Tuesday, 23rd July release so it won’t be too long now before we know what we have in store for us, and tickets will go on sale just two days after on Thursday, 25th July.
As previously reported, this time round you’ll be given the option to sleep onsite at what has now been labelled the FAB Camp, giving yourself a whole lot more time to party – sleep won’t be on too many peoples agendas.
Now in its sixth year, Fat As Butter has become a mecca for all dedicated festivalgoers. Offering a strong cross-section of rock and dance, the festival is a one-stop shop for the thousands of ticket holders who will make the pilgrimage come October.
To get you in the mood before then, check out the Fat As Butter 2013 teaser below.
