Commenting on this year’s Victorious Festival in Portsmouth, city MP Stephen Morgan said:
“I’m so proud we have the UK’s largest metropolitan festival here in Portsmouth. Bringing together thousands of local people and visitors to enjoy music and family activities, the festival also brings in over £5m to our local economy.
From belting out Beach Boys tunes with Brian Wilson to enjoying a dance to Paloma Faith, having a rave with The Prodigy, spending time at the world music stage or supporting our own Southsea Alternative Choir, this weekend was a fantastic time to remember.
Where else in the world can you listen and enjoy acts with the beautiful and historic backdrop that is Southsea seafront as a performance stage?
With another Victorious under our city’s belt, it’s a festival which is well and truly continuing to put Portsmouth on the map”.
