The Fat As Butter Festival have revealed the first two names on the bill for the 2011 festival, International hip hop legends, Naughty By Nature, and Australia’s very own, The Living End. The Festival is held at Camp Shortland, Newcastle on Saturday October 22. The Full Line-up will be announced on July 25th.
From the press release:
You’ve all sung the anthems ‘Hip Hop Hooray!’ and ‘O.P.P.?’, but now you can sing them with the group who invented them – live! Grammy Award winning, U.S. platinum-album selling, New Jersey super-group, Naughty By Nature, has nearly a twenty-year track record of creating the hits and party anthems that have become the soundtrack to our lives. Their music has smashed through mainstream barriers all while remaining true to the sound, message and grit of the hood. And now they’re bringing it to Newcastle!
The Living End are, quite simply, Australian rock legends. In their 10+ year career, the band has racked up a quintuple-platinum album, two platinum and five gold records, won three ARIA awards, countless other accolades and gathered fans all over the world. They’ve had youth all over the nation bouncing off the walls to the killer anthems such as Prisoner Of Society and White Noise, and are still regarded as one of Australia’s most exciting live bands.
With names like Naughty By Nature and The Living End giving us just a small taste of what’s to come for this year’s line-up, it’s clear to see why Fat As Butter Festival has grown into one of the…well…FATTEST musical and cultural events in Newcastle, and indeed the country.
Keep licking your lips! There are more big names to come…..
