The headline acts have been announced for Victorious Festival 2022's Kids Arena.

Captain Barnacles and Kwazii will be performing during a special Octonauts ‘To Your Stations’ show, as the headline for Sunday, August 28.

Other children’s favourite characters are also in attendance, including Fireman Sam, viral sensation Baby Shark, and Glitch and Ubercorn – superheroes from Go Jetters.

Adventure activities and meet and greets will also take place throughout the weekend, so little ones will be entertained throughout.

This includes the Lidl Mudder Zone, which gives kids a taste of the Tough Mudder assault course.

Children will get the chance to take part in a wide variety of activities.

They can also learn sports and skating basics with Southsea Skatepark Mini Wheelers and S4K Sports.

Kids karaoke will also be available, so festival performers of the future will get the chance to display their music talents.

More relaxed activities such as face painting, den building and colouring are also included.

Victorious Festival was recently crowned as the ‘Best Local Family Friendly Event’ at the Little Ankle Biters Awards.

A star-studded line-up has been organised this year.

Main stage headliners include Stereophonics, Paolo Nutini, and Sam Fender, who will perform on Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Indie legends Primal Scream and The Libertines will be making special guest appearances.

Other acts performing at the festival are platinum-selling singer and coach on The Voice Anne-Marie, English pop-rock band Bastille, and Britpop stars Suede and Kula Shaker – among others.

On the comedy front, Rosie Jones and Portsmouth-born star Suzi Ruffell will be the hosts in the newly expanded Fringe Fields.

Tickets for the festival are on sale from £50 for adults.

All kids arena activities are included in the entry ticket.

Children under five get entry to the event for £1 a day, with tickets for kids aged between five and 12 costing £8 a day.
