Sigrid, The Vaccines, Beabadoobee & more have been confirmed to perform at the 2023 rendition of Portsmouth’s Victorious Festival.
It is the first time the festival will be held across a full three days,
Funk and acid jazz outfit Jamiroquai have been announced as the 2023 headliners; fronted by Jay Kay, they’re set to deliver thirty years of groovy tunes, with singalong anthems to be expected from the original Space Cowboy.
Norwegian pop powerhouse Sigrid is also set to appear, offering hit tracks from her momentous debut LP, ‘Sucker Punch’, and its follow-up, ‘How To Let Go’, which arrived earlier this year. Indie legends The Vaccines join the weekend celebrations with a diverse back catalogue; from their era-defining debut, their most recent fifth effort, and all the shades of colour between.
Beabadoobee is already set for a huge 2023, including stadium support shows alongside none other than Taylor Swift, with Victorious only adding to her British plans. Her second album, ‘Beatopia’, expanded the Filipino-British singer-songwriter’s palette, proving “Inventive, playful and, at times, truly magical,” according to Dork’s 5-star review.
Elsewhere, Hype List 2023 leader Dylan will bring her arena-ready pop-rock anthems to her local coast, with Liverpool’s alt-rock gem Crawlers and Jacob Slater’s Americana project Wunderhorse also joining the bill.
