This morning Victorious Festival have announced their third wave of acts to perform at this August’s festival. Joining the likes of Stereophonics, Elbow, Rita Ora and Madness will be Maximo Park who are returning after previous headlining the 2013 event at the Historic Dockyard.
Also performing will be The Dandy Warhols and The Jesus and Mary Chain. With an incredible career spanning more than thirty years later have been one of the most influential rock bands of modern times and have been cited as inspiring acts including My Bloody Valentine and Radiohead. Back on tour and back in form with their first studio album in nearly 20 years – critically acclaimed long-player Damage and Joy – theirs will be a performance not to be missed.
Other acts announced today include south coast based rock duo Band of Skulls, alt-rockers The Hunna, neo-psych four piece Temples, up and coming dance-indie crossover Bad Sounds and Black Foxxes. Among the other acts already announced, my personal highlights include Frightened Rabbit, Raye, Tiggs Da Author, and the mighty British Sea Power. You can expect to hear further announcements of local bands who will be playing to follow in the near future.
This year there is also an option to camp off site on Portsdown Hill. The relaxed family friendly site within the grounds of Fort Widley will be open to campers from Friday 25th until Monday 28th August. Campers will be offered a free shuttle bus service between the campsite and the festival site.
