Victorious Festival is only a few days away, and thousands of visitors are expected in Portsmouth for the three-day music extravaganza. 

Because of the size of the event and the number of fans visiting, a series of road closures will be put in place to help assist with the smooth running of the festival.

Portsmouth City Council has worked with Hampshire Constabulary and festival organisers to plan the road closures for the event, which will begin on Friday August 23.

The closures will help music fans get safely to and from the festival venue, and to allow buses and taxis to get close to the site.

Here is the full list of road closures for the weekend. Diversion signs will be in place.
