They're off to the seaside...
New Order have been announced as the third and final headliner of Portsmouth’s Victorious Festival for 2019.
The Manchester icons will take top billing on Sunday August 25, heading a line-up that also includes the likes of The Vaccines, Clean Bandit, New Order, Razorlight and Ziggy Marley. Early bird tickets are on sale at £35 and you can buy them here.
Describing their headline show, 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!”
Victorious’ Andy Marsh added: “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!”
While New Orders will close the festival, they join an impressive headline bill that boasts The Specials on the Friday night (August 23) and Rudimental on the Saturday (August 24).
Other notable acts include Bloc Party playing ‘Silent Alarm’ in full, Doves, Two Door Cinema Club, James Bay, The Hives and Lewis Capaldi.
