News: Further Acts Announced for Victorious Festival

Victorious Festival have today announced additional acts to an already incredible line-up that already features Stereophonics, Elbow, Rita Ora and Madness plus many more.

Drum and bass pioneer Shy FX and frequent collaborator Stamina MC bolster the dance bill. Rightfully known for their riotous party vibes the duo is guaranteed to deliver a proper old-school jungle rave. Following critical acclaim for last year’s Lost Property, veteran indie-folk rockers Turin Brakes are a welcome addition and with a wealth of material from a back catalogue that numbers seven studio albums their set is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

Indie singer/songwriter Benjamin Francis Leftwich also joins the bill as does feted newcomer Will Joseph Cook whose brand new album Sweet Dreamer is garnering rave reviews from across the media.

Mancunian rockers Slow Readers Club are sure to be a Victorious highlight. Described by the MEN as “one of the most exciting sounds coming out of our fair city” and known for their dynamic live performances their set will be unmissable. Renowned Canadian folk musician Dan Caplan and acoustic singer/songwriter Matt Wills complete the announcement. Hopefully we don’t have to wait too long until we see the roster of local bands to perform at the festival.

This year there is also an option to camp off site on Portsdown Hill. The relaxed family friendly site within the grounds of Fort Widley will be open to campers from Friday 25th until Monday 28th August. Campers will be offered a free shuttle bus service between the campsite and the festival site.
