Takedown Festival has had quite a meteoric rise since the Southampton based festival began in 2012. Amassing high profile bands such as Lower Than Atlantis, Funeral For A Friend, The Blackout and Skindred to name a few. However, it’s Takedown’s ability to find gems that makes the festival so special. Compiling some of the best upcoming bands and putting them on one bill is essentially Takedown’s quota. Over the years of Takedown Festival they have had bands such as Mallory Knox, Don Broco, Arcane Roots and Marmozets who have all gone on to be some of the biggest names in Rock music today. Takedown festival is a one day event which takes place in March and its the perfect early start to festival season.
