Award-Winning Victorious Festival Announces Friday Line Up

Festival Crowd Header

Victorious (28-30 August ’20) – the UK’s biggest metropolitan festival – has unveiled a host of incredible musical acts joining the Friday line up just in time for Christmas.

With headliners for the rest of the weekend still tantalisingly withheld until the New Year, the festival has revealed some of the amazing talent that will grace the opening night of the award-winning festival next August bank holiday.

Headlining the Friday is iconic Mancunian legend Ian Brown. With a career spanning over 30 years, expect classic hits along with new releases from the former Stone Roses frontman. Following the release of his seventh solo album, Ripples earlier this year it’s safe to say Friday’s headliner will set a precedent for the rest of the festival weekend!  

Also joining the opening night is English indie rock band The Kooks who will thrill crowds with their infectious indie-pop anthems – a guaranteed festival highlight with their extensive back catalogue of hits.

Peter Hook and the Light make a welcome return to Victorious. Headed up by Joy Division and New Order’s co-founder Peter Hook, the band will set Southsea alive with post-punk, new wave classics.

Another addition to Friday’s line up is English rock band Terrorvision. Following a 25th anniversary tour in 2018, the band is set to excite festival audiences once more.   

Said Festival Director Andy Marsh: “We’re delighted to announce the first wave of artists as a sneak peek of what we’ve got in store for next year. We’re positive 2020 will be our best line- up to date and we can’t wait to announce the rest of the bill.”

Victorious Festival is the UK’s biggest metropolitan festival of music and family entertainment, taking place over the weekend of 28 – 30 August, 2020, in the spectacular seaside location of Southsea.

Early bird tickets for Victorious Festival are on sale now. Current prices from just £25 per day (fees apply).
