Written by John Ritchie on June 26, 2012

Fat As Butter festival is fast becoming one of the most celebrated events on the Australian Festival Calendar and one of the biggest days on the New South Wales Central Coast (Newcastle). With over 15,000 punters last year, organisers had a big job on their hands making 2012 an even better day. Now with the first official lineup announcement, it looks as though they’ve nailed it.

Pieced together with some of the biggest international, national and local talent, Fat As Butter 2012 will cater to all, adding something for everyone. Headlining the day will be pop punk mega stars Good Charlotte, who will be joined on the bill by fellow countrymen Yellowcard. Grinspoon and 360 will be adding a nice touch of Aussie flavour to the main stages. Marianas Trench from Canada and UK’s Mystery Jets will also be performing.

Old school 90’s act Wheatus will also be joining in the fun, but that’s just the bands that will be playing – a whole selection of DJ’s and 90’s Dance artists, such as Effiel 65 and N-Trance, along with our own Yacht Club DJs, who have also been selected to give punters something to get their groove on to.
