Fat As Butter - 2013

2013

This year's Fat As Butter line-up sees Sydney guys The Rubens join the likes of Bliss N Eso, Matt Corby, Boy & Bear, Owl Eyes, British India, and a stack of other Australian acts all headed to The Foreshore in Newcastle this October. There's also Canberra lads Peking Duk, power-poppers Bluejuice, indie up-and-comers Glass Towers, Aussie producer Kilter and Canberran political juggernauts Super Best Friends.

It's a massive bill, and one lucky local band on Unearthed will get the chance to join it!

To be in the running you just need to have your best tracks uploaded to the site by midnight Sunday, October 6th and have Newcastle or surrounds selected as your location. If they're still 'pending' in the queue that's okay, we'll listen to everything uploaded by the closing date before deciding.
