Given that there are now 7 acts on Friday is it still the case that only the main stage will be open then? I guess so especially as Primal Scream are confirmed as afternoon....but I guess things are going to start up earlier this year on Friday?

only main and norm starts at 13.00

Feels like a low slot for Metronomy! No complaints though. Friday is absolutely stacked - I thought the Peter Hook-Feeder-Kooks-Madness run last year was good, but Self Esteem-Anna Calvi-James-Primal Scream-Bombay-Phonics is next level

Not there Friday but agree that’s a great set on acts for the money.  My must sees this time:

Saturday

Paolo Nutini, The Wombats, Sports Team, OCS

Sunday

Sam Fender, The Libertines, Embrace, Metronomy

Can’t complain at all

Fantastic line up and I live in Portsmouth!! Been going to festivals for years and to have this on my doorstep is too great for words - some people aren't happy about booking fees etc but show me another festival this stacked for approx 50 quid a day

Personally I'm glad they didn't throw all the money at the headliners and they've played a blinder with the afternoon guest slots

Victorious gets better each year - I know there were problems with bars/toilets last year but I'm confident this year will be much improved

And the Bombay are playing - bring it on!!!

I hope not, I've only got the afternoon off work 🤣

Just been checking out Blue Stones, cant say they remind me too much of White Stripes but I do like them a lot. 

For those not knowing where to start, I just listened to a whole bunch of stuff by them and I would recommend watching this video highly.

Amazing line-up for Sunday, especially now Embrace have been announced as well - yep, it's gonna be clash city for us! Hoping it will be a reverse of last year, when it got overcrowded on the Saturday though. Stoked and excited!

@AndybaggieI agree, I too live in Portsmouth, and the festival has got better over the years since the first one in the dockyard.

The toilet situation last year on the Saturday was dire, and the queues for food. But the one thing I have noticed with Victorious is they do listen to complaints and try to resolve them.....although every year they do get something wrong. Fingers crossed they get enough toilets/food stalls/bars etc!

That was me messing around. Purely guess work so don’t read too much into it but hopefully it isn’t too far off the real thing

Nice work 👏🏻 I’m hoping OCS get a bigger slot, so many hits to squeeze in.  Also, is it a guess at the seaside/acoustic stage or have they put something out about hot chip/Turin breaks already?

I know there’s rumours the seaside stage is gone but I can’t see another spot that Hot Chip or Andy C fit in to, especially with Hot Chip being listed as a ‘Megamix’

as for Turin Brakes, given their placing on the poster, it seems to lineup with an Acoustic headline slot. Again though, this is purely guesswork so I could be completely wrong

My Wife’s 1 must see is Stephen Fretwell, I was worried he’d be an acoustic headliner…. You’ve not helped! Lol.

Least we’ll get to see a bit of Paolo before we head over I guess.

I think Acoustic finishes before some of the other stages.

The other year I watched Friendly Fires sub on Common, watched the whole of Chris Helme on Acoustic and then got back to Common Stage before Prodigy had started. 

So you might be able to do the same this year.

Last year it finished at the same time but the headliner on acoustic started 45 mins after the main header.  So yeah, 45 mins of Paolo then off to Fretwell would be the plan
