Maximo Park, The Dandy Warhols, Band of Skulls, Jesus and Mary Chain Join Victorious Bill

Victorious (25-27 August 2017) – the UK’s biggest metropolitan festival – has today announced its third wave of artists on a burgeoning line-up that already features headliners Stereophonics, Madness and Elbow and many, many more.

Back with their eagerly awaited sixth studio album – Risk to ExitMaximo Park are known for their showmanship and exhilarating live performances. The Geordie rockers are guaranteed to be a festival highlight.

Special Sunday afternoon guests The Dandy Warhols will bring a slice of sun-drenched psychedelic vibes with them to Portsmouth. The veteran acid-pop leviathans are best sampled live and their blissed-out sound will be the perfect precursor to the 2017 Victorious finale.

Needing no introduction whatsoever are legendary noise-rock purveyors The Jesus and Mary Chain. With an incredible career spanning more than 30 years The Jesus and Mary Chain are one of the most influential rock bands of modern times inspiring acts from My Bloody Valentine to Radiohead. Back on tour and back on form with their first studio album in nearly 20 years – the critically acclaimed long-player Damage and Joy – theirs will be a performance not to be missed.

Other acts announced today include heavy indie rock duo Band of Skulls, alt-rockers The Hunna, neo-psych four piece Temples, up and coming dance-indie crossover Bad Sounds, and the feted Black Foxxes.

Said festival director Andy Marsh: “We thought it wouldn’t be possible to make the 2017 line-up any better but we’ve just smashed it! This third wave of acts combines solid, stone-cold legends with the very best of up and coming British indie rock.

“Add it to the line-up we’ve already announced with bands like Stereophonics, Elbow, The Charlatans, Franz Ferdinand and Jake Bugg not to mention the pop acts like Olly Murs and Rita Ora and Victorious has got to be the most exciting, most diverse festival programme anywhere this summer.”

Held in the spectacular seaside location of Southsea, overlooking the Solent, Victorious Festival is an amazing family friendly experience with the best live acts, an enormous free kid’s arena, bustling markets, real ale, real food and an atmosphere not to be missed.

With early bird tickets still available at an unbeatable £30 for Friday and £37 Saturday / Sunday, Victorious Festival remains the most fun for the family available for the price.
