Preview – Victorious Festival

Victorious Festival, Southsea Seafront, 26th-28th August 2022

After a barrage of bank holidays we find ourselves in a bit of a lull – so prepare to be shaken awake by the next one as Victorious returns to Southsea at the end of August!

There are many festivals in amazing settings and this one is definitely up there in the location stakes as Southsea Common becomes its own festival village, flanked by the castle onsite and the sea just the other side of the wall. Continuing to grow and attract top level artists over the years, Victorious has something for everyone, whatever age.

This year’s headline spots are taken by Stereophonics, Paolo Nutini and straight from wowing the crowds at Glastonbury, Sam Fender. Other big names across the weekend include James, Self Esteem, White Lies and Suede, all worthy of a headline slot themselves. For those of you more interested in what’s happening further along the line-up, the eclectic mix of Anna Calvi, Soak, Sports Team, Coach Party, Little Boots, Dylan John Thomas, Honeyglaze and many, many more. There are also loads of family friendly activities in the Kids’ Arena, with a beach area, arts and crafts and the chance to learn some circus skills.

It promises to be a great weekend and if you can’t make all three days, there are options for single day tickets too. Remaining tickets available here.
