Victorious Festival

Yep, that’s right.

Victorious Festival is just under two months away! For anyone who may not know, it’s based in Portsmouth and features some big names of the moment. Last year it took place at the Historic Dockyard but this year it’s been moved to Southsea for the 23 and 24 August..

There are a huge variety of bands that will be flocking to the city (keep in mind that this is only a couple of weeks before Southsea Fest, it’s going to be a busy time for the Portsmouth music scene.).Thankfully the festival has kept a lot of the features that made it so special last year. As well as big names such as Tom Odell and Sophie Ellis-Bextor gracing the main stage, there’s the Real Ale Stage, which proved to be one of the most lively places last year.

Of course, this is also a great opportunity to display the awesome local bands that Portsmouth has to offer. Leading the charge on this is Hometown Show. Having recently played at the O2 in London, they are curating the Real Ale Stage on the Sunday. Their music is a wonderful delight of folk/country style music that’s extremely lively.

Then there is The Day of Rabblement, theirs is a unique blend that comes from brilliant vocals and a wonderful concoction of music. Their debut album came out recently and it’s a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

Both of these bands have been featured on Musical Nourishment before and it will be exciting to catch up with them again. These are just two bands from a great line up. So, to prepare for the two day festival we’ll be previewing as many of the musicians as possible (it really is a big list) before it gets underway.

If you want to know the full line up you find out on the official website and if you’ve bought tickets then we’ll see you there!
