MORE than 100 local acts have today been added to the bill for Victorious Festival.
From Guide Awards 2017 winners like country singer Lily Garland and root-rock band Bemis, to hip-hop act Parv who has been making waves with his track Squinny, there will be scene stalwarts and new bands playing for the first time.
The Southsea seafront festival, which takes place over the August bank holiday weekend, already boasts a stellar bill packed with big names including The Libertines, Paul Weller and The Prodigy.
The recent additions are packed full of exciting up-and-coming, unsigned, acts. Choose 90s will be bringing the best of their ultimate ’90s club night to Victorious
Formed in the summer of 2015, Me and The Moon embody those long, warm, hazy days of endless opportunity. Local legends The Bootlegs will be performing a set packed full of hit covers to get everyone in the festival spirit.
Another one to watch is singer-songwriter Devin Jade who is sure to perform a powerful set.
Former All About The Song winner Fugitive Orchestra makes music which they describe as sitting ‘somewhere in the middle of a vicious brawl between jazz, blues and alternative, uneasily drinking an Espresso’. The band cleverly fuses together beatboxing, live-looping and guitar.
Festival co-organiser Andy Marsh said: ‘While a lot of people obviously look at the headliners and the big names, we do take a lot of pride in this side of the festival as well.
‘We have about 130 acts being announced today, and playing at Victorious gives them a great opportunity to play to a big audience.’
With early bird tickets still available, Friday tickets are £30 and Saturday or Sunday are £45 each.
