WITH a year spent planning the two-day festival, James Ralls was overjoyed with the result of the weekend.

Organiser James was glad with the number of people who entered the gates as well as the top headline acts himself and the other planners managed to book.

Changing location from Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard, where it was held last year, to Southsea didn’t worry James at all and he was happy with how the festival went.

Speaking yesterday evening he said: ‘The weekend was really, really great.

‘Everyone seemed to have a lot of fun and we had a great range of people attend.

‘I was very happy with how it all went and I had nothing to moan about.

‘Lots of people said how much fun they were having which is always great to hear.’

A highlight of the weekend for James was watching Dizzee Rascal from the pit at the Castle Stage.

He added: ‘Watching Dizzee Rascal was great. I had never seen him perform before and I had never seen a performance from the pit.

‘So to combine them both was fantastic. I loved it.’

Plans for next year’s Victorious Festival are already under way with the organisers signing a five-year contract with Portsmouth City Council to hold the festival in Southsea.
