Portsmouth’s Victorious Festival is now in its fourth year, and will return this summer for two days on Southsea seafront on 29 and 30 August. Festival Director Andy Marsh has picked ten tracks to guide us through his favourites on this year’s bill. “We’re waving the flag for affordable, great value day festivals,” he declares. “The festival has grown from strength to strength and made itself a permanent fixture on the festival calendar.”

The Kinks – Waterloo Sunset

“Listening to Ray Davies play this out to thousands of people with the Solent as a back drop with the sun going down will be epic!”

Tinie Tempah – Tsunami

“Dizzie Rascal was such a hit at last year’s festival and I think Tinie Tempah will have a similar impact. Tsunami is always amazing at any festival I have caught Tinie at.”

The Subways – Rock’N’Roll Queen

“The Subways have a fantastic following in Portsmouth, my old band played with them years back and this was a stand out tune!”

The Cribs – Men’s Needs

“Another Portsmouth favourite, I remember the crowd singing this word for word when The Cribs headlined the second stage.”

The Wytches – Digsaw

“Part of the fun of booking for Victorious is being able to attract some amazing new artists. I caught The Wytches on tour last year and knew we had to have them!”

Johnny Marr – Easy Money

“Johnny is proving a firm favourite for this years line-up, his solo stuff sounds great and this will be a fantastic sing along.”
