The lineup for 2018 is now in phase three and heavyweight drum & bass DJ Andy C is set to headline Saturday night with Carl Cox, DJ EZ and Joseph Capriati offering support.

VICTORIOUS FESTIVAL / 24th-26th August 2018
Portsmouth’s Victorious Festival has now been running since 2012, hosted in the city’s historic dockyard and subsequently since 2013 on Portsmouth’s Common. In its short life, the festival has seen some pretty impressive acts come through its doors; The Lightning Seeds, Maximo Park, Dizzee Rascal Basement Jaxx and Manic Street Preachers to name but a few. After last year’s edition of a Friday night affair, the festival will return next August Bank Holiday as a three-day event. Victorious organisers are yet to release a full lineup, however, their Friday night party will feature ’90s indie-pop group The Libertines and Yorkshire-based rock band Kaiser Chiefs as headliners.
