Victorious Festival has been a staple in our festival calendar for the past few years now. Having moved from Portsmouth’s historic Dockyard to its new location of Southsea Seafront a few years back, the festival has gone from strength to strength since. With always impressive lineups, 2017’s Victorious Festival is no different.
We stopped doing the “you can’t miss…” feature as it felt somewhat tedious and lacked the spark it once had. But due to the number of great bands playing at Victorious this weekend, we decided to do a stripped back version. Here are 8 bands that we think you definitely should not miss at Victorious Festival 2017!
