Takedown Festival 2015

Mallory Knox have been revealed as the headliners for the fourth edition of Takedown, now an essential date in the UK indie/alternative summer festival diary. Except it’s in March. Which is where we like it. Taking place in the heart of the thriving live music metropolis that is Southampton, Takedown Festival has proven itself year after year as the perfect appetiser for the whirlwind that is the UK festival season, and judging by the last 3 years it’s a date definitely not to be missed. More bands announced soon!
