We want Victorious festival to be accessible to everyone! We hope you find the following accessibility information helpful.

Victorious Festival takes place on Southsea Seafront. Large areas of the site are flat, most of the terrain is grass. We also have concrete paths running across the site. We ask that you prepare for all conditions you may encounter when deciding what you will need to bring to the festival.

We operate a free personal assistant (PA) ticket scheme for standard ticket-holders who would be unable to attend the event without assistance. Please note that you will be asked to send proof of eligibility – DLA/ PIP or Access Card +1.

Our application form for Victorious 2024 is HERE

Please purchase a standard ticket for the disabled customer. Please do not purchase the PA ticket you are applying for.


Our raised viewing platforms are located at the Common Stage and Castle Stage. They are designed for wheelchair users and people who cannot be in crowds for medical reasons. There will also be an area in front of the platform which is for people who struggle in crowds due to medical reasons.

Please note, the viewing platforms are subject to capacity. When on the platform, stewards may also ask PAs and companions to move to the back of the platform, to allow access for as many people as possible to be able to use the facility.

Our application form for 2024 is HERE

Camping chairs, similar seating and inflatables will not be permitted on site. There will be plenty of seating areas at the event. If it is a medical necessity for you to bring a seat please see the section above about applying for a waiver note.

If you need to bring medication onsite with you, please keep it in its original packaging. We recommend you also bring a copy of your doctor’s letter or prescription to ensure security can easily identify the medication and allow you entry with it. There will also be a fridge available in the medical and welfare area if you require cold storage for your medication.

All toilet blocks across the festival site include an accessible toilet. There are additional accessible toilets at the medical and welfare tents. These toilets are open throughout the festival for use by any customers who require them, without the need for any passes/wristbands, etc.

We want Victorious to be a festival that is accessible for every festival go-er so we are proud to work with Attitude Is Everything, a disability-led charity that improves deaf and disabled people’s access to live music and to have been awarded Gold on their charter of best practice for our commitment to being accessible.

Paul Hawkins from Attitude Is Everything said, “It has been an absolute pleasure to support Victorious to achieve Gold on our Charter of Best Practice. We’ve been really impressed with how the festival has engaged as a whole staff team, including undertaking Disability Equality Training and being responsive to customer feedback. Their dedicated access team has worked hard to make the festival as accessible as possible and we look forward to supporting them to progress further up the Charter in the future.”

Victorious looks forward to continuing its commitment to the charter and improving accessibility in 2024.
