Victorious, taking place from 24-26 August 2018, is the UK’s biggest metropolitan festival. The bill has been revealed for its opening Friday night – and it contains a quartet of the best live party bands the UK indie scene has ever produced – The Libertines, Kaiser Chiefs, Shed Seven & The Lightning Seeds.

Last year’s inaugural Friday night Opening Party with Madness was such a resounding success organisers have decided to do it again – only bigger and better with all the live action taking place in the huge main arena.

Saturday/Sunday headliners will be announced soon but given last years’ acts included Stereophonics and Elbow and given the quality of the Friday night just announced, we can expect some very high profile artists.
