Victorious Festival have revealed their preliminary lineup for their 2021 edition, with Royal Blood, The Streets, and ska legends Madness set to headline. The latter replace former Stone Roses main man and vocal anti-vaxxer Ian Brown who doesn't return from last year's cancelled festival.

The lineup's mix of chart-friendly indie and rock is further exemplified by the likes of Fontaines D.C., Supergrass, Richard Ashcroft, Miles Kane, and Blossoms also appearing. Notable names also include Peter Hook & The Light, Cast and Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs too. 

Summer is inching ever closer and anticipation is really ramping up, with Victorious Festival's director Andy Marsh stating: "This year’s line-up is my personal favourite. It feels like we have achieved an exciting combination of headliners, rising artists, and the return of some family favourites too. We believe there really is something for everyone to enjoy this Summer and we can’t wait to welcome you all!"
