Celebrating an incredible 20 year career, Welsh rockers Stereophonics are guaranteed to deliver an immense set on Saturday night packed with hits from nine studio albums along with brand new material and a dynamic live performance that has earned them a reputation as one of the best in the business.

Support comes from indie-folk troubadour Jake Bugg, power pop trio Feeder, folk rockers Frightened Rabbit, alt-rock upstarts Sundara Karma, feted grime artist and rapper Lady Leshurr and lo-fi London four piece Palace.

Headlining Sunday and providing the perfect finale to the best Victorious Festival yet are Mercury-winning Mancunian maestros Elbow. Enjoying critical acclaim for imminent new album Little Fictions, Elbow’s beautiful ballads and life-affirming indie-rock anthems will make for a sublime crescendo.

Said festival director Andy Marsh: “We are immensely proud of this year’s line up. We’ve worked really hard to secure the very best acts – band and artists we personally love. We literally have the crown jewels of the British music industry night after night and we still have so much more to announce.

“It’s going to be a legendary weekend – the best Victorious yet – we can’t wait until August, it’s going to be incredible!”
