Victorious Festival 2014.

Does Victorious Festival need any introduction in these parts? Portsmouth’s biggest yearly event officially went next level in 2014. Last year’s outing was held in the unique backdrop of the Historical Dockyard, and when word got out that the location had been changed to the common, I found myself scratching my head in terms of how the geography (and already existing infrastructure) would work in their favour. However it only took ten minutes of walking round the site to realise what a wise choice they had made. For once our often neglected seafront shone as a natural host to what was an amazingly successful weekend. The use of space was exemplary, with each area carefully thought out. A lot of lessons were clearly learnt from last year too; the food was more varied and of a higher quality (my goat curry was top notch), and the real ale tent kept the beer flowing. If the current display of evolution is anything to go by, the next coming years are going to be something special. The best yearly event in Portsmouth. No contest.
