Victorious was AMAZING!

(A little belated 😉

If you were in Portsmouth last weekend,
we hope you managed to make it down to Victorious Festival located at Southsea
common and seaside. Loads of staff and students headed down to the event to be
entertained by acts including Tinie
Tempah, The Flaming Lips, Ray Davies and Basement Jaxx.
In true British festival style, it didn’t just rain on Saturday, it
poured! Although it was a miserable and wet day, with lots of dark clouds in
the sky, the atmosphere was amazing!!! Lots of students hid from the rain by
sheltering in the silent disco tent- a truly unique way of experience DJ music.
Rather than listening to music over a large speaker system, music was
transmitted wirelessly into headphones! It was so much fun, and a great way to
stay dry!
On Sunday, the weather was much nicer, and there was no rain throughout
the event! There were so many amazing famous acts, as well as lots of up and
coming local bands for everyone to enjoy. The organisers have said that 100,000
people attended the event of the two day period, and we were really excited to
be able to get tickets for our students to enjoy Portsmouth at its best. It was amazing to be
able to listen to great live music, watch the amazing pyrotechnics, and see the
beautiful Portsmouth
seaside all at the same time.

The event is held annually, and hopefully next year will be even bigger
and better than this year! If you were at Victorious festival this year, please
send us your photos- we would love to see them!
