Southampton’s premier one day, alternative rock music event, Takedown Festival, returns to Southampton University on Saturday 7th March.
Now in its sixth year, fourth at the current location of Southampton University’s Student Union complex, Takedown Festival has grown year by year to become an un-missable date in the UK’s alternative festival season diary, and an anticipated outing for UK bands and festival goers alike.
Headliners Mallory Knox have appeared at Takedown several times before, and in the last 12 months have been garnering worldwide attention, with countless festival appearances in 2014, an early 2015 support slot on the Pierce the Veil and Sleeping With Sirens World Tour, their 2nd studio album ‘Asymmetry’ gaining much acclaim and with regular Radio 1 A-list plays, the Cambridgeshire quintet are making sure 2015 is their year.
Charlie Simpson is perhaps better known as the voice of Busted and Fightstar, but Takedown will see him attending with his solo project.
Merthyr boys The Blackout have called it a day after a 10 year music career, but not before embarking on one last UK tour in March, and one last jaunt at Takedown, their last south coast appearance ever.
Other bands appearing at Takedown 2015 include INme (performing the entirety of their 2001 debut ‘Overgrown Eden’), Heart of a Coward, Arcane Roots, Baby Godzilla, Bleed From Within, Devil Sold His Soul, Fearless Vampire Killers (curating the Obsidian Stage), Decade, Moose Blood, along with nearly 40 other bands, including local bands Creeper, Our Hollow Our Home, Dendera, DEAD, Circle of Reason, and Gone By Tomorrow.
