  1. Victorious Festival 2018

    Placebo playing Portsmouth Guildhall relatively soonish - Be suprised if they're on the bill this year.
  2. Victorious Festival 2018

    Pretty sure it's already confirmed it's back. Also as to the questions on act announcements - There's been very little repatition in time-frame over past few years when it comes to these being made. Fairly certain we had quite a bit before Christmas for 2017. 2016 was 100% majority announced post-Christmas.

    Aha, no I'm just pointing out that this will likely put off a lot of familys from going, compared to previous years where adult ticket prices have increased year on year, the value for taking kids has only gone up a pound or so and because it was such good value, outbalanced the increase in adult tickets, even still. This year though, changing the bracket for kids tickets, does remove quite a bit of the value, at least to familys such as mine, of which many seem to attend Victorious.

    Also add that childrens tickets are now only ages 5 - 12 - Used to be right up until about 15/16. Global making some big changes.

    Early bird tickets 'sold-out' supposedly, £30 a day cheapest now. Perspective, last year they stopped selling the early bird around Christmas.

    I feel like this has been said every year since the festivals inception
  7. Victorious Festival 2018

    Welcome - Hope to see you stick around commenting, even if it's just this thread! I can't personally see the Kasier Cheifs headlining, don't think they're big enough to headline the size of the festival, they'd be a decent 2nd or 3rd down on the main stage though. The Hives would go down a storm, even if people aren't to familiar with them at Victorious. Set is always lively and good fun. Depedning on what his plans are, it may be to early, but a Liam Gallagher solo set isn't completley out the realms of possibility, especially with how well Noel went down a few years back.

    On the kids having to enter with parents thing, they where enforcing it, just kids where asking randomers to take them in. Experienced it on the Sunday.

    Kaiser Chiefs as headliners? Surely they're more sub-level for this now?
  10. Figured I'd kick this off nice and early - Tier 1, limited early-bird tickets on-sale right now at £27.50 for the Sat/Sun & £22.00 for the Friday. Kid's tickets are up a pound at £8.50 per day. Lot's to reflect on for the festival organisers from this year - As good as it was, there was clearly capacity issues in-terms of food stands/bar queing. Also probably to many kids floating about on there own, causing trouble. (More taking this from other's feedback on the 2017 thread than my own thoughts) Anyway, who are they booking? They've exhausted most the main options I can think of now for the indie headliners on a budget that cheap. I do wonder if someone like The Cure or Morrissey is within reach - Similar to 2016, perhaps the undercard takes a hit for a bigger headliner. Would love The Cure mind - Also think acts like The Wonderstuff, The View, The Pixies are all, also shouts. I have a horrible suspicion that they've got the Libs booked and that's partly why Pete's set this year contained just the 1 song of theirs, however the state he was in, I think they make look elsewhere now. I'm also not sure how well they'd go down at Victorious. No idea who they'll book for the castle stage headliners. Always think McFly/Busted are a shout for one. Followed by someone else relatively nameworthy.

    There's a few videos floating around slagging of security for the handling of some teenagers, although chances are they've been made to look bad via the video that doesn't really show why security where holding them down. Crowd was different this year. Although far more kids, I still feel they'll rely on using indie acts to rope the older demographic in. Which makes up a decent percentage of there more expensive priced tickets and the booze.

    I spent yesterday hanging out my arse at this due to the boxing Saturday night. I didn't really get down to the front so to speak, just laid about around the main stage. Arrived on time for Pete Doherty which I regret, made the effort to get down to catch him and it seemed he was on something, set was awful, he seemed off his face, got dragged off stage due to over-running. Dissapointing, seen him early 2016 with the Libs and he was bang on form. Slaves went down very well, all considering you tend to get more families than anything at Victorious. Probably the most lively crowd I'd seen of the weekend. Franz did the job too. Elbow was odd, felt all a bit to slow and depressing, setwise for a big headline act of the weekend. A lot of standing around and the crowd was noticeably smaller for this than Stereos the night before. Overall a decent weekend, they've got issues with the numbers and being prepared for it with bar staff etc. But both days out where relatively enjoyable.

    Attendance is way up on previous years, feels absolutely mobbed everywhere. They're not prepared at all. Ques about 40 mins for food yesterday at 6pm ish. Bars at least 20 mins. Crowds are utter shite too. Must be said. But for the money I've paid it was enjoyable though, seen Feeder, Maximo, Jake Bugg and Phonics. All pretty good.

    QOTSA Confirm Leeds @ 12:45PM NME Stage via Twitter. 21:25PM for Reading - from a photo of the t-shirt's they're selling at both sites too.

    My little brother is there this year, trying to keep him informed on QOTSA - I'm guessing it's probably best to tell him NME around 9:00PM tonight? Anything going on BBC Introducing between 2PM - 3:30PM? Seems a rather large gap?
