Victorious Festival Announce Madness, The Streets, Royal Blood and Richard Ashcroft

The first wave of artists for Victorious Festival 2021, the UK’s biggest metropolitan festival, have been announced with Madness, The Streets and Royal Blood to headline what is set to be a highlight of this summer’s festival season.

Starting the festival with a bang, Friday night headliners Madness are guaranteed to get the party going with a raucous set filled with classics like Our House and Baggy Trousers. A must-see British favourite who will take the festival One Step Beyond.

Saturday at Victorious is all about the 90’s and noughties with garage anthems such as Rewind with Craig David and the anthemic sounds of Richard Ashcroft’s Bittersweet Symphony. Expect urban poetry over old school garage and two-step beats when cult hero Mike Skinner and his band The Streets take the stage to headline Saturday evening.

One of the most influential new wave heavy rock acts, duo Royal Blood are set to close the festival with a bang, projecting huge and heavy rock hits whilst Mel C will bring a touch of nostalgia and spice with her distinctive vocal style.

Carousel has secured coverage in 25 titles for the first announcement of this year’s line up including BBC News, NME, The Sun, Dork and Telegraph as well as a mention on the Chris Moyles breakfast show on Radio X. The Victorious 2021 campaign will also include working with key influencer ambassadors, placing competitions, national and regional news stories and announcements, plus a busy onsite press office during the event itself.

Held on the Southsea Seafront in Portsmouth, Victorious has something for everyone, with more amazing acts still to be confirmed for the 9th edition of the festival. Watch this space for the Castle Stage headliner announcements!
