Victorious Festival announced even more acts for 2016! Loads of talented up and coming, unsigned and new artists are set to appear at this year’s festival across multiple stages both Victorious and Loudnoisesmag pride ourselves on our Portsmouth Roots, a whole host of these incredible acts are from the local area.
Hailing from Manchester, The Slow Readers Club are a four piece who specialise in dark and brooding indie electro, drawing comparisons with Interpol, The Killers and The National. Their last three singles have enjoyed airplay on BBC 6 Music and XFM with the latest single Forever In Your Debt also featured in the top 5 singles of the week. Their live shows have received rave reviews from critics and fans alike.
Portsmouth born and bred band Kassassin Street (pictured below) offer their own brand of dance infused psychadelia they have a fervent following with sell out shows in Portsmouth and Southampton. Their debut song ‘The Royal Handkerchief Ballet’ received recognition from the NME and support soon followed from BBC Introducing, Tom Robinson on 6Music.
Home-grown in Hampshire, The Beautiful Secret consist of up and coming singer/songwriters Rachael Hawnt and Ash Cutler. Their melodically driven music is powerfully emotive and exciting, from big dramatic ballads to full on guitar led rock. Their Debut album is due for release this summer and their music is set to feature in a big motion picture that is due out next year.
Local party starters Rhythm of the 90’s have become notorious for exciting a crowd while they perform live covers of 90’s dance music hit after hit. Bringing back all that is brilliant about the 90’s and fresh from playing at Isle of Wight Festival they are not to be missed!
