Fat As Butter festival’s set times revealed

Only a couple of weeks to go now until Booka Shade, Digitalism, Porter Robinson, Peking Duk and many others hit the Foreshore in Newcastle for Fat As Butter on Saturday October 26. And if you’re already pulling out the camping equipment and planning your transportation then you’ll be glad to hear that Fat As Butter have just put out the set times for their three-stage, one-day festival.

Dance fans will be spending most of their day at the Fabio Stage, and if Porter Robinson or Digitalism are high on your must-see list then you’ll want to get there early – the prodigious young EDM king will be tearing a hole in the afternoon with a 2.30pm slot, following on from San Francisco’s similarly cranking The M Machine (most likely because both acts are also playing in Perth that night), before Digitalism inject a little electro-funk at 3.30 and party rapper Mickey Avalon turns up the sleaze at 4.50pm.

Taking control of the evening are local bass and beat purveyors Bombs Away, Peking Duk and The Aston Shuffle DJs, who’ll see you through until Booka Shade close things off with some considered deep house, fresh from their Garden Party set in Sydney. Tickets for the camping festival are still available at the Fat As Butter website.
