New Order to Headline Victorious Festival 2019
New Order have been revealed as Victorious Festival’s fourth and final headliner for 2019, with the band topping the bill on Sunday 25th August.
The family-friendly event, which takes place across the August Bank Holiday weekend, is set to welcome a huge line-up of artists to Southsea Seafront for the UK’s biggest Metropolitan festival.
Leading the line-up alongside two-tone legends The Specials, multi-award-winning four-piece Rudimental and critically acclaimed indie-rockers Two Door Cinema Club, New Order bring a whole new dimension to this year’s Victorious line-up.
Rising from the ashes of the legendary British post-punk unit Joy Division, New Order emerged as one of the most influential and pioneering electronic bands of all time, embracing the electronic textures and disco rhythms of the underground club culture. Guaranteed to deliver a memorable set of hit classics, their live show will provide the ultimate finale at Victorious 2019.
New Order’s Bernard Sumner, said: “After months of touring it felt like we needed to find the perfect setting for our last show of the summer, I believe we have found it! We can’t wait to play at Victorious and its picturesque seaside location!”
The festival will also feature sets from Bloc Party, who will be performing their Silent Alarm album, plus Clean Bandit, The Vaccines and Doves.
Victorious Festival Director, Andy Marsh, said: “New Order strike a great balance with the rest of our bookings. It’s the perfect blend of genres and musical textures and more importantly, it’s going to make for a fantastic finale.
Victorious 2019 is going to be truly spectacular. The line up has gone down really well and tickets are selling faster than ever, we can’t wait for August! “
Over the course of the weekend, ticket-holders can expect an eclectic mix of live music and DJ performances from some of the biggest names in the music industry, along with a medley of locally sourced food markets and ale stalls, an arts and craft marketplace, a jam-packed kids arena hosting themed games.
There’s still plenty more to be announced for Victorious 2019, so keep your eyes peeled for news as soon as it arrives.
