Victorious Festival has announced its first wave of music artists for its 2022 line-up, including Stereophonics and The Wombats.

The festival will be held in Southsea near Portsmouth. 

Stereophonics will headline the Friday show, with the Mancunian band James also performing on the opening night.

Liverpudlian three-piece The Wombats will bring their infectious brand of indie-pop to the festival on Saturday while the afternoon belongs to Brit-winning, chart-topping RnB/pop royalty Sugababes with an extra-special daytime show.

Nothing But Thieves and Sophie Ellis-Bextor will be the main acts on Sunday.
