Madness will headline on the Friday evening, with The Streets and Royal Blood closing the Saturday and Sunday respectively. A Sunday night headliner for the Castle Stage is yet to be announced.
‘‘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,” said festival director Andy Marsh.
“We believe there really is something for everyone to enjoy this summer and we can’t wait to welcome you all!’’

The Streets and Royal Blood were due to headline Victorious 2020, but the festival was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
News of the Victorious Festival’s return for 2021 comes after the government unveiled its staged ‘roadmap’ out of lockdown, which aims to gradually lift all social restrictions by June 21. In line with that conditional date, the likes of Reading & Leeds, Latitude, WOMAD and Creamfields have confirmed plans to go ahead this summer.
The Streets were also recently announced for the UK’s South Facing Festival, a new outdoor concert series in south London, has announced the first acts for its inaugural edition this summer.
Set to take place at the newly revived Crystal Palace Bowl amphitheater in Crystal Palace Park, South Facing will run from August 5-31 and feature 12 live shows and a host of free midweek events for the whole community.
