Newcastle’s springtime Fat As Butter festival will not go ahead this year, organisers have announced.

The 2013 lineup, which included the likes of Gym Class Heroes, Bliss N Eso and Matt Corby, was the last we’ll see of Fat As Butter for now. In a statement, the organisers said:

Brace yourselves for some rotten news. Unfortunately there’ll be no 2014 edition of Fat As Butter – major BUMMER. Despite 6 months of scouring the world we just haven’t been able to land a line up that we reckon you guys would come and play with. We’re obviously all disappointed that for the first time in 7 years we wont be partying on the Foreshore. It was a decision we agonised over, but sometimes the fickle gods of the almighty line up just don’t co operate!

We’ll miss you all this year, but we’ll definitely be back in 2015 with a smashing show. Stay tuned in the meantime – we might just have something else to fill the musical void.

FAB Headquarters.
