Victorious Festival is one of Portsmouth’s biggest events and brings thousands of people into the city each year.

This year the likes of New Order, Two Door Cinema Club and Lewis Capaldi will be headlining the Southsea festival, which is being held on the August bank holiday weekend.

It takes place on Southsea Common, making it one of few UK festivals to be held in the middle of the city close to a residential area.

As the event brings a high noise volume and a huge increase in visitors, many residents will be keen to know what time the festival starts and finishes each day, and what time the crowds will be leaving the venue.
