Victorious Festival: Indie stalwarts headed to Southsea in August

The third wave of bands includes the likes of Maxïmo Park and The Jesus and Mary Chain


Eight more bands are headed to Southsea this August as part of the third wave for Victorious Festival.

Several of the new additions are stalwart indie bands, including north-east favourites Maxïmo Park and the legendary The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Band of Skulls and The Dandy Warhols are also confirmed, joining headline long-runners Stereophonics, Madness and Elbow.

The Hunna are the pick of the other bands, bringing their indie pop to another festival as part of their increasingly hectic summer schedule.

Psych rockers Temples, alternative rock breakthroughs Black Foxxes and Bad Sounds complete the latest additions.

Victorious Festival takes place on the seafront in Southsea, Hampshire, from 25-27 August.

It’s an alternative to Reading Festival in the south on the same weekend, and plenty of famous names are on the bill.

The aforementioned headliners are joined by Franz Ferdinand, The Charlatans and Jake Bugg, plus names from the world of pop.

Weekend tickets are already sold out, but day tickets are available from £30-£37.

That makes it possible to attend the whole event for just over £100, although there’s no camping.
