IT’S just a week to go until the return of Portsmouth’s biggest music spectacle.

Preparations are well under way to bring the popular Victorious Festival to life on Southsea Common next weekend.

And the region is set to enjoy a massive economic boost as 100,000 tickets have been snapped up for the two days – with more going each day.

Victorious co-organiser Andy Marsh said there is huge excitement around the occasion.

Speaking to The News, Andy said: ‘The main stage is up already and the Victorious banners will be going up now.

‘The Castle Field stage, which was the main stage last year, is being built and the sound towers are going up.

‘It’s amazing that we are up there with the other major music festivals now.

‘People walking their dogs along the seafront see what’s going on and they are up for it.

‘The city is buzzing, and the sun is out.

‘About 1,000 tickets are going out every day at the moment, people are just excited and can’t wait to see what we have created.

The city is buzzing, and the sun is out.

‘Local businesses are going to do so well out of this and as a local restaurant owner, we can’t look forward to it enough.

‘There’s a strange calm at the moment, we all seem to know what we are doing by now, which is nice.’

Organisers revealed this month that they want to distribute a £100,000 pot of cash to local causes including the water fountain at Southsea Castle, Southsea Skatepark and the Teekpah Village Project in Liberia.

The star-studded line-up for the August Bank Holiday weekend bonanza includes Ray Davies, Tinie Tempah, The Flaming Lips, Johnny Marr, Texas, Basement Jaxx and Primal Scream as well as a string of other national and local acts.

A new stage on the Common will act as the main arena this year, and other stages will appear on Castle Field and at the bandstand. Plus there’s an acoustic stage, beats and swing tent as well as music on a real ale stage.

The festival site is expected to welcome 120,000 spectators in total and there will be tickets available on the door at a cost of £30 a day.

A silent disco and a real ale tent are just some of the other attractions and there’s a programme of children’s entertainment.

Last year saw Victorious Festival’s first appearance in Southsea after previously being held at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, and featured stars including Dizzee Rascal, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Seasick Steve and Ocean Colour Scene.
