 It looks like The Streets are headlining Victorious Festival 2020

A massive sign reading “FIT BUT U KNOW IT” has been erected in Southsea, suggesting The Streets are about to be announced as a headliner for Portsmouth’s Victorious Festival.

‘Fit But You Know It’ is the title of what could be The Streets’ best known single, which reached fourth place in the UK charts back in 2004.

The festival is making a habit of teasing headliner announcements by installing enormous signs, with a ‘Blue Monday’ sign appearing days before New Order were confirmed as the Sunday night headliner of Victorious 2019.

Earlier this week, The Streets were revealed to be playing their biggest ever hometown show in Birmingham as the headliner of this year’s MADE Festival, along with headlining London’s South West 4. They were already confirmed as a NASS 2020 headliner back in November.

Taking place on Southsea seafront over the August bank holiday weekend, Victorious Festival has already announced Ian Brown, The Kooks, Peter Hook and the Light and Terrorvision will feature on the Friday line-up this year.

Mancunian legend Ian Brown is billed as the Friday headliner following the release of his seventh album ‘Ripples‘ last year. Festival organisers said: “With a career spanning over 30 years, expect classic hits along with new releases from the former Stone Roses frontman. It’s safe to say Friday’s headliner will set a precedent for the rest of the festival weekend!”

Back in December, Victorious Festival Director Andy Marsh told press: “We’re positive 2020 will be our best line- up to date and we can’t wait to announce the rest of the bill.”

In previous years, the festival has boasted of boosting the local economy by around £10 million and has claimed to be one of the UK’s best value festivals.

Victorious Festival is billed as the UK’s biggest metropolitan festival of music and family entertainment, taking place over the weekend of 28 – 30 August, 2020, in the spectacular seaside location of Southsea. Tickets are on sale now.
