When a family festival is done right you will have the best weekend EVER.
One festival that does it right year on year is Victorious Festival.
Victorious Festival is held in Southsea, Portsmouth.
Victorious combines 3 great days of family fun with amazing artists to give you the most incredible fun filled weekend with your family.
The girls and I headed to Victorious Festival last month and had a blast! I had heard good things but they really wow’ed us with what they had to offer.
Arriving at the festival itself on Friday was super easy. The usual festival traffic was almost completely non existent, we parked quickly and a 2 minute walk from the car brought us right into the heart of the festival. To me thats a huge plus point for a family festival, queuing with kids or marching them across fields for miles is never a fun experience.
Note: Friday only half of the festival is actually open. Saturday and Sunday are the main days.
Once we arrived we set up a little spot in front of the main stage and watched Fleetingwood Mac, the first thing I do at any festival is to just start off by take a seat, so we can find our bearings, check the line up and the map. In a place so big with some many people its easy to feel overwhelmed.
The weather was beautiful and the atmosphere was great, loads of dancing, laughing and people generally having a lovely time, you can’t beat the festival vibes! The field was nice and spacious with plenty of room for the kids to roam a little without loosing sight of them instantly which is great!
My girls can dance any time of any day to any music so they had the best time as we dotted around visiting different tents and stages.
Victorious festival is deceptively big, there was so much for us all to see and do and plenty of free events for the kids to join in with as well.
Bella roped us all in to a yoga class which was actually great fun. There is something quite liberating about joining in a yoga class in a field with people walking past but not really giving a damn. I think I may have found my inner zen. The girls do yoga at school all the time so they were naturally much better than me but I may have unlocked an inner passion for Yoga.
On to the food, the food selection was great. Festival food is up there with one of our favourites. We shared a huge pot of mac n cheese and grabbed some chips followed by ice cream for the kids – of course.
Festival food isn’t cheap so I wont pretend it was good value for money but as long as you go in to a festival knowing what to expect you wont have any little shocks! Taking snacks for the kids is a must!
But that does bring me on to the price point. Victorious Festival is really reasonable £35 for a day ticket is just amazing, considering how much you are getting for your money it really is such a bargain. I did feel like of all the festivals I have been to with the kids, Victorious gave the most for it’s money, with things like children’s fair ground rides all being free! That’s just unheard of usually and it’s so nice to be able to just say ‘yes kids fill your boots’ without worrying about the hole burning through your purse.
Our evening finished watching The Zuttons and dancing along to Valarie just perfect.
Overall our first trip to Victorious was awesome; I feel like although we did so much and had a great time there was so much more we could of seen and done, Victorious 2020 we are coming for you!
