Plugging into the Music that Matters

Stereophonics, Elbow and Madness heading to Victorious Festival

We’re being well and truly inundated with announcements lately and Portsmouth festival, Victorious, shows us why it’s worth a trip to the south coast this August.

The bank holiday weekend will see Victorious give summer a great see off as they bring veteran festival performers, Stereophonics, Elbow and Madness down to the seaside town.

For the first time, the festival will be expanding from two days to three and no better way to celebrate this than an evening with legends, Madness.

The Welsh rockers have a huge back catalogue of nine albums under their belt from their illustrious 20-year career. Festival-goers will have more than enough opportunities to sing their hearts out from ‘Dakota‘ to their fantastic cover of ‘Handbags and Gladrags‘ when Stereophonics take to the main stage on the Saturday night.

While Elbow will be closing out the festival with songs from their brand new album Little Fictions, which went straight to number one this week in the charts, along with their classics such as ‘One Day Like This‘ and ‘Neat Little Rows‘.

Joining the headliners, Slaves will be bringing their latest album, Take Control to Portsmouth, with Jake Bugg, Feeder, KT Tunstall, Franz Ferdinand, Frightened Rabbit Sundara Karma and Palace all announced to be playing at Victorious from August 25-27th.
