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..
