Stage splits 

Saturday's undercard is looking great

Sunday reminds me of last year when they forgot to book anything for it. If I liked the Phonics and didn't see Bugg last year I might go for the day. I'm sure for many alright for price though

British Sea Power/Feeder clash isn't ideal (if no bands are added above).

Surprised to see that the Castle Stage headliners are poppy as opposed to dancy as @luckysalt mentioned, they seem to have been quite popular in the last few years. I was expecting to see a Faithless DJ set or something similar.

I'm down the whole weekend but I have to say I'm seriously disappointed so far. Praying for a belting next wave.

Faithless are playing Dj sets elsewhere this year. 

Maybe Specials, Stranglers, libertines etc. Haven't heard much from Palma Violets recently but they are brilliant live.

Im surprised it looks like KT Tunstall is subbing on castle and clashing with Franz, both hit their height of popularity at same time around 2005 so you would think same fanbase appeal and KT would surely be better as a main stage sunday afternoon act. 

Always have such weird placings victorious

Looking at the website looks like Frank Turner is playing the get people in early so we can make more money in the arena slot. No one for Sunday though. Seems a weird one giving Frank Turner that slot I have to say, surely will get more young uns in who can't buy beer.

Look at past 2 years, Texas on Sunday in 2015 [Saturday didn't have one] and Boomtown Rats and Will Young last year.

Yeah definitely a different type of act, though there have been plenty of older people at the Frank gigs I've been too (which is like 7 now I think :lol:). 

It's just a solo show as well, which they should probably make clear on the lineup page. 

On the Feeder/BSP clash, i think someone will be added above Feeder anyway.

Sunday looks rather weak still, surely more to be added there. One or two more if we're fortunate on the Saturday 'name-wise' and it could be a really solid day that. Can't really fault the line-up. As a family it's ticking boxes for all of us. 

Would love Palma Violets as someone else suggested.

Sunday looking like just gonna be plonked in front of main stage...sorted! Saturday, main stage except for BSP and Frightened Rabbit, bummer if FR and Feeder clash

 

Only just noticed its only the Castle Stage open on Friday. Had assumed the Common (main) stage would be open. That bar at the back is gonna be bloody manic!

Kinda gutted Olly Murs is headlining the 2nd stage...assumed he would be in the Will Young slot. Secretly don't think he is that bad and would have given me an excuse to watch him without any of my lot knowing I actually wanted to see him if he was on the main stage. Bum.

Noticed Gary Numan's making the odd appearence here and there including Standon Calling in a lower slot than I expected... Potential to sub the Sunday?

Can only see Franz subbing the Sunday to be honest, they're headlining all the other festivals they're doing, Kendall Calling, Truck, Belladrum and Rock En Seine. 

Surprised to see Happy Mondays announced for YNot, hope Victorious grab them as well to beef up the main stage.

I've never understood the programming at Victorious - from some of the weird clashes to the random lengths of the set lists - random local cover version acts getting longer sets than big international acts etc.

Less than 24 hours later Happy Monday's announce a Portsmouth pyramids gig for May. Think that's likely a write-off the ha!

Global snap up majority stake in Victorious Festival.

Global is becoming a bit of a beast. So thats South West Four, Field Day, Boardmasters, Rewind, Y Not, Truck, Festival No.6, Standon Calling, Glass Butter Beach, Lost Village, as well as the Broadwick promotions including Kendal. 

There's "more to come", says Global Entertainment

No suprise for most but I've been informed by a reliable source that Rhythm of the 90's (Popular local act) have a slot on the main stage this year. Not sure what day though.
