Victorious Festival, Southsea

24-26 August 2018

Victorious Festival returns to Southsea this August Bank Holiday, with a number of huge acts already announced.

The Libertines, Kaiser Chiefs, Paul Weller, Paloma Faith, Years & Years and The Prodigy – a UK festival exclusive – are the biggest names already announced, making for a star-studded line up.

A unique festival located directly on the seafront, Victorious brings together fantastic live music, delicious international cuisine and bustling market stalls, full of quirky goods.

The Kids Arena is back for 2018, too, providing free entertainment to all family festival-goers, including face painting and live children’s performances. Last year even saw Mr Bloom, Peppa Pig and the pups from PAW Patrol make an appearance.

If you’re looking to stay in Portsmouth, there is offsite camping available for the weekend or, alternatively, there a number of hotels and B&Bs on the seafront.

So what are you waiting for? Book your festival tickets today and make the most of our early bird ferry fares, with day return travel for only £10.00.
