On Friday 26th August, the Stereophonics will be the main headliners.

It will be the Welsh band’s second appearance at Victorious Festival - they previously played at the Common Stage as headliners way back in 2017. 

This year the legendary rockers will be joined by Britpopper James, as well as Primal Scream.

On the Friday you can also get your groove on to big performances from Self Esteem, and the amazing Derry singer-songwriter Soak.

On Saturday 27th August, Paolo Nutini is the headliner, who will be making his big return after having been away since 2014.
