Boasting over 10 stages, Victorious Festival, taking place next weekend (27th and 28th August), are always firm supporters of the local scene and it’s easy to see why. Performing alongside international talents will be some of the south coast’s finest up and coming stars. Make sure you check out one, or all, of these fantastic local acts below:
Rhythm Of The 90’s
Back by popular demand are Rhythm Of The 90’s, performing some of the world’s biggest hits from the soundtrack of our youths. Chosen by local promoter Nick Courtney to perform on the Casemates Seaside Stage, the band always attract a massive crowd for their sets and their cover of Faithless’ Insomnia is something that you simply can’t afford to miss.
Portsmouth pop sensation Jerry Williams will perform on Victorious’ second stage, the Castle Stage, following successful shows at BST Hyde Park and supporting Bright Light Bright Light at Hackney’s Oslo. Her tracks have had over 1 million streams on Spotify, with her latest single Mother attracting airplay from Amazing Radio, Express FM and BBC Introducing.
Southsea psychedelic quintet and Victorious Festival favourites Kassassin Street will return to the Casemates Seaside Stage following a busy summer festival tour which has seen them play the likes of Tramlines and the Y-Not Festival Main Stage. I’d check these lads out while you still can because they are going to hit the big-time very soon.
Portsmouth star Marley Blandford will be opening Sunday’s proceedings on the Main Stage at Victorious, supporting the likes of Will Young, Echo & The Bunnymen and Noel Gallagher. Marley is a regular on the Portsmouth music scene, which makes his gigs feel polished and complete. He’s just launched his latest EP A Shooting Star Ain’t A Sign Of Love, so make sure you check that out too.
Victorious Festival takes place on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th August, featuring headline performances from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Manic Street Preachers, as well as Travis, Editors, Annie Mac, Mark Ronson (DJ Set), Will Young and many more.
