Festival Crowd Header

Victorious (23-25 August ’19) – the UK’s biggest metropolitan festival – has unveiled a host of incredible musical acts as a special treat in time for Christmas.

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

Genre-defining Two-Tone legends The Specials play the opening night. With a career spanning more than 40 years, a bag full of hits and still as energetic as ever its safe to say Friday night will be party night!

Saturday sees a smorgasbord of delights including Brit Award winning singer/songwriter James Bay, stunning Swedish garage-rockers The Hives and purveyors of high-octane indie rock The Rifles.

On the bill for Sunday is the multi-award winning electro-classical fusion sensation Clean Bandit and The Vaccines – a guaranteed festival highlight with their infectious brand of pop-rock.

Said festival director Andy Marsh: “We wanted to spread a little festive cheer by revealing just a smattering of what we’ve got in store for next year. It’s already shaping up to be our best line-up up to date, we can’t wait to announce the rest of it!”

Tickets for Victorious Festival are on sale now. Early bird tier 1 tickets end at Midnight on Sunday 23 December. Current prices from just £25 per day (fees apply).
