and live on Freeview channel 276
Grammy and Brit award-winning folk rock band Mumford & Sons have been named as the final headline act for this year’s Victorious Festival taking the stage on the Sunday, following on from Jamiroquai who are headlining on the Friday and Kasabian who are headlining on the Saturday. But a whole host of other exciting names are also set to appear at the three-day festival which is taking place on Southsea Common over the August bank holiday weekend.
Many of the acts set to appear at Victorious have performed in Portsmouth before and many fans will be anticipating their return, but a number will be making their debut. This includes Radio 1 DJ Pete Tong, who may be making his Victorious debut but is no stranger to Portsmouth with previous appearances at the city’s Mutiny Festival..
Saturday headliners Kasabian are set to make their first appearance at Victorious, although they have crossed the Solent and performed at the Isle of Wight festival.
Alt-J and Natalie Imbruglia are also set to make their Victorious debut on the Saturday. But one act no stranger to Victorious are the Kaiser Chiefs who performed at Victorious in 2018.
The newly-announced headline act for Sunday, Mumford and Sons, are yet to make their debut in Southsea Common, but did perform at the Portsmouth Guildhall in 2012, to a packed out crowd. Other acts returning to Victorious this year include The Coral, Annie Mac and Badly Drawn Boy.
The first set of early bird tickets have already sold out, with the second tier of tickets available to purchase online. Standard tickets are ‘coming soon’ according to the festival website.
