All Saints

Joining the Saturday bill are nineties pop sensations All Saints. Reforming after a ten year hiatus in 2016 with the hugely successful album ‘Red Flag’ – which charted at No3 in the Official UK Album chart – the Pure Shores hitmakers have sold 12million records across their career to date, including five Number One singles and with a wealth of material from an amazing back catalogue their set is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

Indie-rockers Idlewild are also a welcome addition to the Victorious line-up. Having recently announced their first album in four years with ‘Interview Music’, as well lauded single ‘Dream Variations’, the Scottish indie veterans are guaranteed to be a festival highlight.

Other confirmed additions across the weekend include exciting up and coming, unsigned and self-releasing artists and include singer-songwriter Miles Hunt and Erica from The Wonder Stuff, famously unsigned Jerry Williams, The Snuts, Laurel, Alice Jemima, Plastic Mermaids, Alex Francis, Kawala, AK Patterson, and Bessie Turner.

Said Festival director, Andy Marsh: “We’ve worked tirelessly this year to ensure our line-up caters for all tastes and we truly believe we’ve hit all the key points from the musical spectrum.

“Adding these amazing artists to the line-up we’ve already announced with bands like The Specials, New Order, Bloc Party, Clean Bandit and The Vaccines not to mention unbelievable pop acts like Rudimental and Two Door Cinema Club, it’s safe to say Victorious has got to be the most exciting, most diverse festival programme anywhere this summer.”

Revellers can expect an eclectic mix of live music and DJ performances, from some of the biggest names in the music industry, as well as a medley of locally sourced food markets and ale stalls, an arts and craft marketplace, a jam-packed kids arena hosting themed games, live performances and much, much more.

Victorious Festival continues to be one of the best value festivals in the UK.
